You’ll learn to remain calm under the pressure of an advancing assailant, using punches, kicks and blocks to unsettle and unbalance your attacker as you position yourself for a fight-ending move.
Extending the unbalancing skills you’ve learned from standup, you’ll develop instinctive responses to close-quarter attacks, learning to adjust your techniques to work on assailants of varying sizes.
For situations where you can’t just run away from an armed attack, you’ll learn how to avoid taking damage as you work to subdue your assailant with a proportionate level of intensity and finality.
Most prolonged fights will end up on the ground. Beginning with carefully controlled drills, you’ll develop techniques to decisively incapacitate your assailant whether you’re on top and on your back.
