Self-Defense and Martial Arts Philosophy

Self-Protection

The self-protection program is a non-traditional and practical method that can be channeled into any area of inter-personal conflict. Because of its sophistication, scientific approach and application, anyone can achieve great self-confidence, peace of mind and spiritual growth. Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of this method is its scientific basis, organization and structure. We show how real-world science can be applied to combative martial arts and human performance. The result is a highly effective reality-based self-defense system founded on the correct application of physics, body mechanics, kinesiology, anatomy and psychology. As a system this allows anyone who is willing to put the time and effort into practicing to quickly develop a high level of mental self-confidence, self-awareness and powerful physical skills.

The ultimate goal of this comprehensive scientific method is to have the ability to deal with and control any situation in which you may find yourself and eliminate the self-sabotaging mental blocks which keep you fearful. It is a form of self-reliance and self-mastery through the means of mentally going within yourself. The beginner will find that the basics of the art are both easy to learn and apply. For the advanced student he or she will be able to perform at some of the highest levels of physical and mental skills available. Viewing the method from the outside in is like looking at an iceberg. The basic techniques and concepts may at first appear to be simple but as you look deeper you begin to see a vast science. A proven self-defense combat science is part military science, part psychology and part philosophy. Its primary focus is to take anyone from all walks of life and help them achieve inner strength, self-growth and self-transformation.

There are four categories of martial arts that all systems, styles and methods fall under: expedition, theatrical, competition and reality-based.

Expedition

The term "Expedition" describes arts that are centered towards spiritual enlightenment and physical fitness. It also can be referred to as "internal arts".

Theatrical

The term "theatrical" is all ideas, concepts, techniques that are based on choreographic moves and/or stunts that are stage-related. This is for entertainment purposes or movies. This has nothing to do with reality.

Competition

The term "competition" describes all combative arts that are geared towards sport combat competitions, which emphasize rules, referees, rings and rounds. Mixed Martial Arts, cage fighting, boxing, submission grappling tournaments are a few examples. These combative arenas are in fact a form of controlled violence, they are more "realistic", but not "real".

Reality-Based

The term "reality-based" describes any or all situations, scenarios and events that are likely probable and possible to happen in the world. Therefore all techniques, tactics, strategies and philosophies should be based on the "end result", which is "survival". Furthermore all reality-based systems should be easy to learn and easy to apply.

Conclusion

The word "combat" describes all aspects of human confrontation or anything and everything related to conflict or fighting manifestations.

A method is not a "style" or "art" but rather a systematic way of achieving a goal. No mysticism, no tricks. A "style" demonstrates approach with personal flair added to something which may or may not be reality-based. An "art" implies a creative interpretation which again may or may not be realistic in application.

Therefore this method is not "Karate" or "Jeet Kune Do". It's not boxing or wrestling or "MMA" (Mixed Martial Arts). It's not street fighting or any assorted "do's". It's not purely theory, psychology, philosophy, science or art. It could be none of these and any one of these.
