4 DAYS THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE:
4 DAY BOOT CAMP APRIL 26-29 2014, ELMSFORD NY. DID YOU MISS IT?
 
WHAT IS THE HOLY GRAIL OF SELF-DEFENSE?
 
Gun self-defenseGroundfighting and knife self-defense
 
1. HOW TO ADAPT AND DEFEND AGAINST
A CONSTANTLY CHANGING ATTACK
 
  
2.
HOW TO  PENETRATE AND DESTROY
A CONSTANTLY CHANGING DEFENSE
 
3.  HOW TO FIGHT WITH THE RUTHLESS INTENT, ANIMAL SPEED, MAXIMUM POWER AND DYNAMIC BALANCE OF A WILD JUNGLE CAT
4.  HOW TO GO BEYOND ORDINARY SELF DEFENSE TRAINING THAT OFTEN CRIPPLES YOUR NATURAL SURVIVAL REFLEXES
 
FACE FACTS:
1. It doesn't matter HOW MANY lethal targets you know--
       NO ONE is going to just LET you hit them!

It defies reason but there are extremely expensive "realistic" self defense courses out there that would have you dive in on your attacker and completely ignore what he's throwing at you--kind of like the ancient Samurai who believed they were immune to bullets fired from European guns.  Here's the reality: Bad guys hit back...and defend themselves as well. To dive in with no understanding that your strikes will not only be blocked but that you will be pummeled as well (by someone bigger and stronger than you) and with no notion of defense or evasion defies the forensic reality of true violence. You can only pray that your attacker is as weak and uncommitted as these other "experts" suggest.
2. What's to stop a determined attacker from hitting your lethal targets
        FIRST?


Bad guys get a vote in the fight--they attack and defend also. If they're bigger, stronger and quicker, they can hit your eyes and throat before you hit theirs--OR they can block your attack and then hit you somewhere else--and not like you planned. Then what do you do?

3. 99.9% of self defense instruction relies on
       PATTERNED TECHNIQUE TRAINING.

You see it on Youtube all the time: the "bad" guy "attacks" the instructor (who knows exactly what's coming, how and where), whereupon the instructor executes an amazingly fast and accurate defense response. Wow! If only reality was just like that! The delusion is: you think you can learn the "right" move for every attack. But here's the problem: REAL violence is a big, ugly mess that follows no script--just ask any cop or soldier. Competitive Sport fighting is no better: it has RULES to protect the competitors--life and death violence doesn't. If you had to save the life of your wife or child you'd need to fight a lot differently than you would in the ring. Remember what Bruce Lee said:

"THE WAY YOU TRAIN IS THE WAY YOU FIGHT."

4. 99.9% of self defense training forces your body to move
       UNNATURALLY.


We have innate animal reflexes that have been neutered by STYLIZED, SPORTIVE, FANCY, or ROBOTIVE self defense techniques. These cripple your speed, power, looseness and balance while locking up your brain and nervous system. TV and movies make it worse by contributing to cultural delusions about real violence and what fighting for your life really looks like.

 
 
IF YOU TRAIN WITH PATTERNED TECHNIQUES, SPORTIVE RULES OR A DELUSIONAL IDEA OF REAL VIOLENCE, THEN THAT'S THE WAY YOU'LL REACT WHEN YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT.
 
 
If you want to SURVIVE, you have to be able to ADAPT and IMPROVISE on the spot--but where do you learn HOW to do that? Reality Based and ordinary Close Quarters Combat teach deadly strikes--but not how to ADAPT them to the CONSTANTLY CHANGING CHAOS of real violence. "Authentic" Tai Chi has the potential to teach you this, but it's almost impossible to find and could take a lifetime to learn, if ever.

John Perkins
Created by former forensic crime scene expert and New York police detective John Perkins, Guided Chaos will teach you how to improvise your self defense moment-by-moment, giving you what you need, when you need it, regardless of form or direction. You will instinctively create your defense on the spot with maximum power, speed and efficiency grounded by strict internal principles. Though Guided Chaos looks like tai chi--it is not--it has its roots in World War II Close Quarters Combat and Modified Native American Groundfighting.

DON'T THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX.
GET RID OF THE BOX.

The 4-day April 26-29th 2014 Boot Camp will be intense, life-changing...and fun.


For beginners through experts.


This year we're making the two Guided Chaos/contact flow-focused days Saturday and Sunday so those who can only come for the weekend can get the benefit of the unique GC material.

Monday will be GC Combatives and a real ass-kicking, dummy-slamming day along with the 7 Scenario Training. This is the day to attend if you want to learn how to hit HARD and FAST right now--and put it to use as soon as you walk out the door. On Monday we will also show how GCC integrates into GC. Tuesday will be GC Groundfighting and way more intensive than last time, with more aspects of survival fighting WITHOUT grappling and how to keep from going to the ground in the first place--all essential against a stronger enemy who may have friends!

NOTE: GC Groundfighting is completely different from BJJ or MMA.


Pricing and discounts will be mostly similar to last time:
--$200/day if you pay by the day.
--$700 for all 4 days (you save $100) via credit card.

“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.

"The Way of Adaptation"

WANT A SEMINAR NEAR YOU? A typical 2 day seminar is a super-intense overviews 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.

A typical 2 day seminar consists of:


SATURDAY:

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:

GC LOGO borderGUIDED 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
