Students are encouraged to make the training experience as realistic as possible. The emphasis is on swearing, aggression and threatening behaviour.
This is to prepare students for the reality of an explosive verbal assault in a street situation, which can cause adrenaline dump, seriously affecting the body’s ability to perform any kind of self defence techniques successfully.
We train as real as possible (without racist, homophobic or personal comments), while avoiding injury, to get the mind and body used to just about any kind of situation that might arise.
We make no apologies for this approach, as this is one of the factors that sets apart reality-based self defence from traditional self defence and martial arts classes.
To progress and evolve, you must be taken out of your comfort zone.
Please attend class with an open mind and do not be offended. Because on the streets, attackers do not say please and thank you!
