Simple, quick and deadly, this is the first level of Guided Chaos.
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.
Understand that the original
Close Quarters Combat developed by Colonel Rex Applegate, William
Donovan and members of the OSS was lethal all by itself. This CQC 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.
Perkins takes these methods and supercharges them with internal energy principles and Native American fighting concepts
("anything goes" adaptability).
There will be no "supernatural chi" crap in this GC Seminar, just nasty ways to:
PENETRATE ENEMY DEFENSES WITH UNSTOPPABLE POWER WHILE REMAINING UNAVAILABLE TO ATTACKS.
So many systems have you clashing with the attacker... as if bad guys didn't hit back or defend themselves!
this seminar you will learn how to skim, slide, step, fold, pivot,
turn, isolate--essentially to "ghost" your way in to lethal
targets...and hit them with "supernatural" power rarely found even in so
called "internal" martial arts...yet solidly based in physics and
One of the early
names for Guided Chaos (before we decided to stop revering all things
Eastern) was "Ghostfist". This name embodied the key Guided Chaos
"Be Unavailable Yet Unavoidable" "Hit without Being Hit" "Simultaneous Attack and Defense"
Whether you are a BEGINNER or EXPERT, we will be focusing on developing this ability in ALL participants at the seminar.
Are you battle ready? Can you fight for your life--Right Now? Is something missing from your current training?
WHO IS THIS SEMINAR FOR?
•You're a beginner looking for the fastest path to superior self defense
•You've trained hard in other styles, yet you feel something's missing...
you've been in a serious fight and couldn't escape and somehow, in the
face of real violence, everything became chaos. You felt weak, slow, unbalanced and all the push hands practice or techniques
that were so easy to execute in class...disintegrated.
Maybe you were seriously hurt. And then it hits you:
•You’re a dedicated Tai Chi “push-hands” player who, after 20 years, suddenly realizes four things:
That you're no closer to finding the true meaning and martial
application of tai chi principles such as silk reeling, leading,
following, borrowing, folding, receiving, turning, collecting,
empty-solid, yin-yang, peng ching, etc. then when you started.
2) That you’re no closer to understanding or performing mystical feats of “Chi” then when you started. 3) That endless microscopic examination of proper form is preventing you from seeing the bigger picture: that
practicing patterned techniques and forms doesn't make you formless,
spontaneous or adaptive to the chaos of REAL violence. In fact, it
cripples your ability to apply internal principles to true fighting and life and death combat.
“Change the way you move, change the way
FOR BEGINNERS THROUGH EXPERTS Yes, you read that right.
Guided Chaos' unique methods benefit ALL levels dramatically. In fact, for some people, advanced training in another style could be a handicap. For others, GC can be the Holy Grail you've been searching for your entire life...but you may have to "empty your cup!"
•Come for 1 or both days and experience the fastest way to learn survival self-defense
YOUR INSTRUCTOR: Lt. Col. Al Ridenhour USMC Iraq & Afghanistan Combat veteran and Guided Chaos master
The American art of Guided Chaos is NOT tai chi.
...But it applies internal principles for combat in a free-form, dynamic
way that many high-level tai chi practitioners have said is closer to true "combat tai chi" than any other martial tai chi fight training available.
INTERNAL ARTISTS ENDORSING GUIDED CHAOS:

internal artists -- especially those who practice push hands and
close-up fighting skills -- should develop, but many of them don't.

am a long time student and teacher of Tai Chi Chuan. The Guided Chaos
training I have had this week has been extremely beneficial. You and your instructors have taught me more about internal martial arts, in a few days, than I could have possibly imagined. Although both Tai Chi and Guided Chaos offer challenging training, most
people doing Tai Chi never get to the level of proficiency Guided Chaos
delivers because they become caught up with external form. By
concentrating on essential movement principles rather than superficial
choreography, GC methods provide the best way to gain competence,
expertise and even mastery of both self defense and internal martial
arts. Grand Master Perkins is absolutely correct when he says that
in GC, form follows function--and not vice versa. I will still have to
put in the practice time, to get the most from your help, but what I
need to work on is now clear to me. Thank you John, Al, Matt and Patrick
for setting me on the fast track. " --Michael Coplon
