Learn how to out-grapple an opponent when lives are at stake, rather than competition points, with the Combative Grappling system developed by Kinetic Fighting founder Paul Cale.

In this four-hour course (the KEF–IC Echo module) you will learn vital strategies and skills to survive life-threatening situations where you end up on the ground, and an assailant attempts to attack or grab and 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 bladed or blunt weapon

  • Supine (guard) offence and recovery tactics

  • Shoulder lock variations and controls for key tactical positions

  • Classic trips and reaps adapted for real combat.

 

Prerequisites: None — beginners welcome
