99.9
% of self defense instruction relies on PATTERNED TECHNIQUE TRAINING. What is PATTERNED TECHNIQUE TRAINING?
 
"If he does that, then I'll do this--but if does this, then I'll do that!"

 
You know the deal: You think you can learn a "cool" move for every attack. But here's the problem: No REAL fight looks like that! Just ask any cop or soldier--REAL violence is a big, ugly mess. Competitive Sport fighting is no better: it has RULES--life and death violence doesn't. If you had to save the life of your wife or child you'd fight a lot differently than you would in the ring. Remember what Bruce Lee said:

"THE WAY YOU TRAIN IS THE WAY YOU FIGHT."
 
 
IF YOU TRAIN WITH PATTERNED TECHNIQUES AND SPORTIVE RULES THEN THAT'S THE WAY YOU'LL REACT WHEN YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT.
 
 
You have to be able to ADAPT and IMPROVISE with REALITY based combat (not sport fighting) if you want to SURVIVE--but no one teaches HOW to do that. You literally have to make stuff up ON THE SPOT if you want to live. Reality Based and Close Quarters Combat may teach you deadly strikes--but not how to ADAPT them to the CONSTANTLY CHANGING CHAOS of real violence. Tai Chi might, but it could take you a lifetime to learn, if ever.

EVERYBODY knows you have to injure your attacker--but HOW do you do that if he won't LET you? There's never been an American-made system that combined internal power, flow, sensitivity and improvisation into a No-Holds-Barred, Reality-Based, Close Combat fighting art in the shortest time possible.

  Until now.
 
 
REAL VIOLENCE IS CHAOS. ADAPT OR DIE.

“Real World Violence, not Dojo Dancing. I have trained, studied, and researched martial arts and fighting for over twenty-five years and have always felt that something was missing. The number of techniques I found to actually work in a real fight was very few, even though I became very proficient at utilizing them in the dojo…if you do have a martial arts background you’ll find that many of the things you will learn…will greatly enhance what you know already.
–David Chesher, Former SWAT team member and U.S. Marine

"The Way of Adaptation"

GET READY... A typical 2 day seminar is a super-intense overview of the entire Guided Chaos system (as time allows) to provide as much hands-on training as possible.

Guided Chaos has a unique feel to it and we will strive to get everyone on the right track for accelerated development. This will also allow you to use the drills and principles to augment any other self-defense training you already have, increasing your ability to adapt to violent chaos.

Though the concepts are advanced, they can immediately be put to use  by rank beginners.

This is your opportunity to try out the "unique" Guided Chaos system first-hand and experience its effectiveness. A typical 2 day seminar consists of:

SATURDAY (12PM-5PM):

GC COMBATIVES LOGOGUIDED CHAOS COMBATIVES (GCC)
WALK OUT WITH SKILLS YOU CAN PUT TO USE IMMEDIATELY. MASTER THEM IN 6 WEEKS (with diligent training).

There are other World War II combative systems out there.  Some are authentic and some are watered-down MacDojo nonsense. The best of these derive from the simple, effective techniques created for U.S. soldiers in World War II and used in thousands of documented police and military conflicts. John Perkins takes these methods and supercharges them with principles from tai chi (internal energy) and Native American fighting concepts ("anything goes" adaptability). Understand that the original Close Quarters Combat developed by Colonel Rex Applegate, William Donovan and members of the OSS was lethal all by itself (it was devised because of a perceived inadequacy in our troops' Hand to Hand training compared to that of Japanese Soldiers schooled in Judo and Karate. This led to a training overhaul by our own military in the late 1930's and used in countless close engagements against Japanese troops in World War II.) Guided Chaos Combatives is just the first level of Guided Chaos. It teaches you the basic weaponry in a short period of time.

SUNDAY (10AM-3PM):

GUIDED CHAOS (GC)
-HOW TO PENETRATE A CHANGING DEFENSE
-HOW TO DEFEND AGAINST A CHANGING ATTACK

How to condense a lifetime's worth of Internal Arts training into lethal combat you can master in 5-10 years with diligent practice.

-Intro to Guided Chaos Groundfighting

-Intro to Weapons (if time allows).

Guided Chaos Combatives is the first level of Guided Chaos. It teaches you the basic weaponry in a short period of time. You can then go on to learn the entire mother art of Guided Chaos--a revolutionary system that frees your body and mind to fight with the natural  animal motion best suited for humans. Rather than using robotic, regimented or sportive techniques, it focuses on pure adaptability to help you survive the unchoreographed chaos that characterizes every real life and death struggle. These principles integrate Weapons, Groundfighting, striking with all parts of the body and many, many more combat aspects. These methods are found nowhere else.

Unique Drills for developing the 5 Main Principles:
• Dynamic Balance
• Looseness & Pliability
• Body Unity & Power
• Energy Sensitivity
• Combat Adaptability & Improvisation for Survival
