Army Combatives Program creator Paul Cale’s course delivers the blueprint for training your Kinetic Fighting skills into the future: Hone the fundamental techniques and tactics in this highly interactive and practical session.
This course (a.k.a. Bravo module in the KEF–IC syllabus) will build on your Self-Protection Essentials (Alpha module) training with four hours of skill integration, reflex training and drills to help you develop your fundamental skills into an effective arsenal.
In this module you will be introduced to principles of adaptation and shown how free play and sparring/rolling can enhance tactical capability. Learn grappling skills applicable to real combat (tried and tested by former Commando SGT Paul Cale and his fellow Special Forces soldiers on the battlefield), and work on competitive drills where the objectives support tactical aims and develop your combative skill sets. This session provides the framework for your ongoing refinement and development of all the self-protection skills and strategies learned.
You will also receive a comprehensive training booklet for each module, along with a certificate and badge (which adheres to KEF–IC training gear) denoting your completion of these modules in the Kinetic Fighting system.
