the Masters Won't Tell you"
90% of what is taught in most martial
schools, self defense schools and videos...
just won't work on the street!
you been searching for a simple, yet effective
method of self-defense that really works?
you figured out yet that most martial arts
schools, videos and seminars teach a lot of stuff
that doesn't work on the street?
there really a way you can learn to defend
yourself in virtually any situation, quickly and easily?
you ready to learn the basics of self defense without
spending the next four years wasting your time and money
learning useless things?
40 years of studying and teaching martial arts I can tell
you beyond any doubt that most of what is being taught
today in martial arts schools, seminars and videos...
just won't work in a real street attack!
And it's a darn shame. So many unsuspecting, poorly trained
and totally clueless folks are walking around with a false
security. They believe the moves and techniques they were
taught in their local martial arts school or a seminar
they attended, will really work in an honest to goodness,
no holds barred, street attack.
what's wrong with most traditional training?
Let me tell
I have been
teaching martial arts for a many years. For a long time
I taught much the same way everyone else did. Sure it
worked fine in the studio, but I often wondered how it
would work on the street.
I had heard
and read about experienced black belts being utterly trounced
by ordinary street thugs. What about what I was teaching?
Would it really work if called upon, to protect my students
and their loved ones?
bothered me for a long time.
it wasn’t until I had the chance to fight the “Bulletman”
that I really learned what would work on the street!
me explain. A number of years ago I was attending a national
martial arts convention. This guy was up on stage talking
about adrenaline stress response training. I had never
heard about it at the time. The instructor was talking
about the effects of fear induced adrenaline on the mind
and body during an actual street attack. I was intrigued.
speaker asked for a few volunteers. Several men and a
women were chosen to go up on stage. The next thing that
happened had most of us feeling the effects of adrenaline,
right in our seats.
guy comes out in this weird looking suit. He has football
shoulder pads and some obvious groin protection. On his
head he wore a huge piece of headgear which I found out
later was a professional football helmet with four layers
of special density foam padding wrapped in silver tape.
called this ‘monster’ the Bulletman, obviously because
of the silver round headgear that looked like the top
of a bullet. One of the volunteers was asked to come out.
The instructions were to try to maneuver around the Bulletman
without getting too close. If the Bulletman attacked they
could strike him full force into the groin and head.
Bulletman starts screaming at this guy. He shouts obscenities
at him. He taunts him. He faints attacks as he threatens
the guy. I could feel my gut shaking just sitting there.
Then suddenly the Bulletman attacks. The poor guy attempts
some foolhardy kick which embarrassingly misses the mark
by about a foot. Next a punch that had less impact than
my eight year old grandson could muster. After a few more
minutes of this hideous display a women instructor blows
a whistle and the whole thing is over.
few more volunteers and about the same result. Now here
is the interesting part. Everyone of these volunteers
were experienced black belts. Some were school
owners with a dozen years or so of experience.
why did this happen?
all fell prey to the natural effects of adrenaline on
the mind and body. Adrenaline is the natural result of
fear induced aggression. It really can’t be stopped, but
it can be focused and used. These black belt volunteers
had tried to use their dojo techniques (traditional martial
arts techniques). What they hadn’t anticipated was that
the adrenaline had dulled their senses. It minimized their
fine motor skills, it gave them tunnel vision and even
affected their cognitive thinking.
out taking this adrenal rush into account, effective street
self defense cannot be accomplished. To be effective,
each technique must be simple, direct and not require
fine motor coordination.
this is what I did...
I got fully trained in adrenal stress self-defense training.
I found out what would and wouldn't work under what we
call the 'adrenal dump'.
is what I learned:
effect of real aggression causes what is called an
"adrenaline dump". This fear induced high
volume shot of adrenaline is normal and natural and
cannot be stopped, even by experienced black belts.
of this "adrenaline dump" can be devastating,
especially if you are not prepared for it.
problem is that many of the techniques that are taught
in traditional training are too tricky or too complicated
for the average person to properly execute. This is
especially true under the duress of an all out street
attack. Techniques that are highly complicated tend
not to be executed properly, if at all, when the pressure
is on and adrenaline levels are high.
the systems use joint locks and pressure points that
require years of training to properly execute. Sometimes
even when they are applied properly to someone who
has an unusual amount of joint flexibility or a high
resistance to pain, they don’t work.
the arts teach kicking techniques that are great for
the studio or for sport competition, but are all but
useless on the street. Unfortunately many of the practitioners
of these arts are led to believe that they can really
use these kicks effectively in a combat situation.
They end up with a false security believing they can
defend themselves with such techniques. In reality,
if they ever have to really fight, they usually get
themselves into trouble very quickly.
require years of training or are just impossible to
learn unless you are under the direct training of
the master instructor. You cannot learn these properly
from a video, book or seminar. They take years to
perfect, even under the supervision of an expert instructor.
of what is taught is just fluff! It doesn't stand
a chance to work in a real street attack!
was developing a system that contained the following benefits:
to address the inevitable adrenaline dump which is
the natural effect of fear induced aggression.
to be simple enough to teach students in days or weeks
instead of years!
to be effective regardless of the body type of the
to be quick, effective and decisive!
to address real street "situations" instead
of the typical studio environment.
to contain a minimum amount of techniques. This was
necessary as research has shown that as few as a handful
of techniques can be recalled when fully "adrenalized".
to be designed to defeat a much larger and stronger
to be easy to learn.
it had to be direct, powerful and yet simple and straight
forward enough to be taught through video based training.
So I went to
work analyzing, adjusting, changing, modifying and fine
tuning everything I was doing and teaching in my self
defense program. Believe me, it wasn't easy, even for
an 'expert' with over 30 years of training at the time.
next several years I searched everywhere and every way
to simplify, and improve every aspect of our self-defense
system. This search included going to seminars, visiting
other schools, bringing in guest instructors and reviewing
close to 100 self defense videos.
I was sifting
through masses of information to pick up a gem here and
there. Every thing I learned and tried had to go through
what I call the "Adrenal Stress Filter'. It had to
work under duress and high adrenal states. Slowly I made
changes to what we taught and how we taught it. Constantly
modifying, perfecting and refining our program to what
it is today.
any response that did not fit into this reality. We added
more simple, direct and extremely effective strikes, moves
and techniques that could be learned simply and easily.
And, did not require years of training.

system of instruction. To help our students learn the
system we decided to carefully put the entire process
on video. It's done in a step by step manner so that even
