• You're a muscular 6 foot 2 inch, 240 pound night club bouncer-- but the guy you have to throw out of the club is 6' 8" and at least 325...
• You’re a street cop who’s been placed on temporary suspension because you shot a kid who refused to succumb to the arm-locks you were taught at the academy.
• You're a soldier, your rifle's jammed with the enemy right around the corner and you're seconds away from finding out if the sportive grappling they taught you in basic will work against someone trying to tear your throat out and send you to the hereafter.
Solution 1: Train Basic Tools...
In 1989, the Russians instituted a hand-to-hand combat methodology that far surpassed ours in terms of simplicity and effectiveness. Ironically, it was nearly identical to the system our military used--back in World War II. What happened? Through a political process too convoluted and distressing to elaborate on here, over the years, our soldiers' hand-to-hand training has become overly complicated, mis-directed, and relatively ineffective except under "sportive or "competitive" (i.e. unrealistic) conditions.
Guided Chaos' Combatives (GCC) does away with the boxing-grappling-locking nonsense that has become the "politically correct" standard of training for our soldiers in recent years. Instead of subjecting our military personnel to methods that could get them killed, Master John Perkins and Lieutenent Colonel Ridenhour USMC provide basic, effective methods proven in World War II. The prospect of confronting Japanese Soldiers in the jungle skilled in Judo and Karate led to a training overhaul by our own military in the late 1930's. Colonel Rex Applegate, William Donovan and members of the OSS created a system of simple, devastating attacks used successfully by U.S. soldiers during countless close engagements against Japanese troops in World War II. But GCC is only the beginning...

Solution 2: Take the Tools to the Next Dimension...
Guided Chaos' is a new and unique style of martial art created by ex-cop and homicide expert John Perkins. The premise of Guided Chaos is that all real fights are chaos and thus most attempts to use choreographed techniques will meet with disaster. As a former police officer and forensic homicide investigator studying blood spatter patterns at scenes of horrific violence, John Perkins scientifically evaluated how people really fought and died. He learned that in real bloodbaths, nothing ever happens the way you think it does. When he applied this knowledge to his police work on the streets of Yonkers, NY, what he found was that in order to adapt to chaos and survive, you have to liberate your mind from patterned technique training and instead develop free, adaptive movement principles based purely on nature and physics. Guided Chaos trains you to become a master of random motion, spontaneously creating your defense using principles of energy, movement and physics that have their roots in classical training but that have been largely ignored or forgotten over time.
HOW IS GUIDED CHAOS DIFFERENT?
Guided Chaos is different from other organized "styles" of martial arts in many ways, yet it can complement most of them. How different is it? First, and foremost, it has no forms. That is, it has no set and sanctified techniques, no prearranged specific responses to given specific attacks, no learn-by-the-numbers choreography to clog the mind and the reflexes with unnecessary strategic calculations. How is this possible? It does it by inverting the entire learning process. You start where most training ends. Why? Because during a real fight for your life, it is virtually impossible to deliver a stylized technique effectively; the speed, chaos, viciousness, confusion, and utter terror associated with a real fight prevents this. Your nervous system simply becomes overloaded with the flood of sensory stimuli. You can't treat your brain like an electronic dictionary of self-defense responses and expect it to select the right "technique" to counter a "matching" attack under extreme duress. It simply doesn't work that way. If you've been programmed by training a specific response to a specific attack, your defense will fail if the attack changes by even one inch from the way you've trained.
This is true whether you know one technique or one thousand. How will your body know when to deliver the strike if the sensory data it is being bombarded with has no correlation to your practice? Since all serious (non-sparring) fights are literally hell-storms of chaos, you cannot rely confidently on choreographed training. This is not conjecture. It has been proven through exhaustive experience, countless police and morgue reports, and testimonials by police officers with high-ranking belts from various styles who's classical training failed them when the spit hit the fan.
IF GUIDED CHAOS HAS NO TECHNIQUES, HOW DO YOU TRAIN?
You train dynamic principles of movement only. The main ones are Body Unity, Looseness, Balance, and Sensitivity. There are many others, but they all focus on developing your subconscious neural pathways, resulting in what some would call "natural motion" and others would call "chi." These are developed through unusual drills and exercises and combined with the simple deadly strikes of Close Quarters Combat developed by Fairbairn, Sykes and Colonel Rex Applegate and proven in World War II.
If your primary interest is in an immediate and extremely simple self-defense methodology or if you are in the military or law enforcement, we recommend the DVDs Kill The Enemy and Police & Military Combat Tactics. These DVDs explode the politically correct and false basis that underlies much of what is taught to our soldiers and law enforcement today (as opposed to what was taught in World War II). These DVDs only scrape the surface of Guided Chaos however so we would recommend you eventually get the more advanced DVDs we describe here. We apply the same no-holds-barred reality principles to our comprehensive Weapons Series of DVDs
