Learn tactics to out-grapple an opponent when lives are at stake, rather than competition points, with this combat-focused course created by Kinetic Fighting founder Paul Cale.
In this four-hour course (the KEF–IC Echo module) you will discover vital strategies and skills to survive life-threatening situations where you end up on the ground, and/or the assailant attempts to control you. You will also drill ground-fighting responses for when weapons are, or could be, in use.
You will learn core skills and drills to develop the following key aspects of grappling for self-protection:
Targeting your attacks to stop threats rapidly
Weapon awareness, pre-emptive response and counters
Clinching with a weapon
Supine (guard) defence, offence and recovery tactics
Shoulder lock variations and controls for key tactical positions
Prerequisites: None — beginners welcome
Time: 9am–1pm, 13 March 2021
