The Highest Level of sophistication for close- quarters combat

Imparting Understanding. Culminating Sophistication.

We have unparalleled passion. Our pursuit of high-yield human performance has led to the highest level of sophistication for close-quarters combat.

True combat effectiveness is drawn from a very deep well of self-knowledge. The greater part of combat is mental, emotional, and psychological.

Each person has his or her own combat mindset. The prerequisite to your journey of personal discovery of your combat mindset is that you must first possess a level of prowess. It is that dangerous element that  separates you as the apex predator.

Over 25 years of training, research, development, and training others has culminated in training that produces capable, high-quality, combat-effective warriors.

We share the secrets that most martial artist never learn, the secrets that only the battle – tested know.I believe in sharing of the  fruits of my life’s labor.

The combat mindset reaches beyond the battlefield to yield a mindset that can be applied to self-management, problem solving, leadership, and to resolving interpersonal conflict. We incorporate cognitive and psychosocial research to produce a combat effectiveness in all environments: boardroom to back-alley.


In the seminar I am going to share secrets that most martial artist never learn. Those few that do acquire this level of expertise are typically not willing to share it. Inversely, I have perfected the art of sharing my knowledge.

What You Will Learn

You will learn how to set up your adversary so that you have a significant tactical advantage. You will learn to severely maim, disable and/or incapacitate an attacker within one and one-half to two seconds.
You will also learn how to disengage from or how to control a subject with very little effort. Nothing I teach you will take more than ten percent of your overall strength.

Simply put, you will have the ability to evaluate whether to select a control technique or to disable or to kill your opponent.


Many of these techniques are violent. This does mean that I think violence is the only answer or even the first answer. However, when it is, you should not be found lacking.


Attire should be comfortable workout gear such as sweats and a t-shirt and athletic shoes.

Your Safety is Important

First, if you have had training from me you know that your safety is of the utmost importance to me. I do not believe that you have to suffer injury in order to learn. I also am not trying to make you tough. I am making you dangerous.


This is not an exercise class. Many of us have experienced significant wear and tear on our bodies. You are likely capable of participating in this course. If you have any concerns about this just ask me.

Walk in Peace

We share a common bond in that you want to walk in peace until you can no longer do so. Like me, you want to protect your family, those that you are responsible for, those that you have sworn to protect, the innocent, or those that you love. Join me and  you will receive a choice selection of the fruits of my life’s work.
