The world today is a dangerous place and it’s not going to get better any time soon. From violent crime drastically escalating in Chicago and in other US cities to the rise of international and domestic terrorism, it is up to you to acquire the skills needed to survive the world we live in so you can go home to your family and friends every day. Fighting for your life is not glamorous like what is reflected on TV, in the movies or demonstrated in the vast majority of  Martial Art gyms. When you are faced with someone who wants nothing more than to kill you and to kill those you love, fighting by a set of rules that has been ingrained since childhood and re-enforced in most of today’s training communities will  only get you killed.  Street Combatives  specializes in Close Quarter and Knife Combatives. We are not an easy gym, we are hard and we are not for everyone.   NO KIDS & NO EGOS.  Our goal is NOT to turn you into a cage fighter or any other type of ‘SPORT FIGHTER.’ Our goal is to give you the skills to stop an attacker who is trying to kill you so you can go home, not for a promotion or new colored belt.   We have engineered a Close Quarter Combative system which we refer to as; Our system is a well faceted combative system integrating hands, elbows, knees, feet, knifes, sticks, firearms and improvised weapons as well as a combat mindset. Our system emphasizes a simple ideology;  ‘ATTACK YOUR ATTACKER !’ Basically, when attacked, you must immediately, without hesitation, prejudice or remorse, attack your attacker with unrelenting furiousness, targeting their vital organs; their nervous system and their physical structure until your attacker no longer has the ability nor the will to keep fighting. Students learn that they must immediately act against spontaneous attacks; be ready for anything; bad guys are never alone and that criminals do not fight with rules, respect or with honor.   Our training is hard, intense and not for everyone. Our training is very similar to military type training.  We train in the dark, with strobe lights flashing, loud music playing, on the ground, with restrictions (simulated cut hands, broken arms, hurt legs, etc.), against multiple attackers, in extreme close quarters and under duress.  We train students outside of their comfort zone so if ever attacked, they will be ready. We try to ingrain the fact that you must have a warrior mindset and confidence in your abilities to keep fighting and to never  quit. To help students build confidence, be aggressive and not fear being hit, we are a contact gym. We  spar and grapple regularly and we even train with Marine Corps style Pugil sticks to help with both endurance and the reduction of fear. We teach principles, as well as the mechanics that make the techniques work. We teach students that running away from a possible fight is the best option, but should events escalate and a higher level of force is warranted or you simply cannot run because of injury or those with you  can not run, we teach how to immediately destroy the attacker and to assess the area for other attackers as the initial attacker may not be alone. We teach: Ripping, Striking, Gouging, Cranking, Smashing, Biting and what ever else it takes to stop the bad guy from killing us. Our techniques rely mostly on gross motor skills, are simple to learn, easy to apply under pressure and are very effective.  Instead of’ teaching 1000’s of techniques, we focus mostly on about 20-30 that can be used during multiple situations. We attempt to ingrain the fact that fights are unpredictable, chaotic, attackers are not compliant and that flashy /pretty techniques go out the window real fast under the realities of an actual attack. No Lie Blades is a GSA vendor providing training tools and Defensive Knife Instruction to our Military, Special Operation groups within our military, Law Enforcement, HRT, SRT and SWAT teams. We use their training knives in all of our Knife Combatives courses as they are the best for training, developing and testing your skills. Tell Hank that Ron sent you.
