  YOUTUBE CLIP #2-"CONTACT FLOW, NEAR FULL-SPEED"


(Excerpt from IN THE EYE OF THE STORM DVD.)

John Perkins eye-gouging to prevent MMA black belt Tony Dey from dropping for an attempted takedown. Dirty fighting is not something you can just sprinkle on to your regular tactics: dirty fighting must be trained, both in its delivery and defense.

 

Youtube clip #3-"SLOW CONTACT FLOW"
Youtube clip #4-"REALITY CHECK #1"

Contact Flow is a 2 or MORE person sensitivity exercise somewhat similar to chi sao or push-hands except that it is completely free-form and anything goes (including ground-fighting). It is usually performed very slowly to maximize creativity and development of the nervous system but can be done at any speed up to and including maximum adrenaline velocity (this obviously requires a very high level of skill so that training partners don't seriously injure each other).

  COMMENTS ON ABOVE CLIPS:

#10) ABOVE RIGHT (GROUNDFIGHTING WITH KNIFE): Lt. Col. Ridenhour demonstrating "last-ditch" warfare against multiple attackers when your firearm is jammed or unavailable and the situation dictates you go to the ground. Groundfighting is a last resort when you've lost your balance.

Guided Chaos Groundfighting (like the rest of the art) has no techniques to lock up the mind. All REAL fights are unpatterned and unpredictable. We emphasize principles of motion like balance, body unity, looseness and sensitivity that dictate that you NOT attempt to control, grapple, lock up or otherwise directly engage the enemy.

GC is not a sport. There's no "sparring" or point-fighting. You learn to fight ONLY to save your life. We teach reactive freedom, so that your body snakes and slithers from control, like the way a mongoose or enraged alley cat moves. This is counter to most grappling philosophies which are not mirrored in nature. When was the last time you saw a leopard put a figure 4 lock on an antelope? They rake with claws and teeth, going for the throat and the kill. To save your life or the life of a loved one, we teach serious strikes to the eyes and throat primarily, with no controlling or submission moves or counter-moves, delivered with whatever part of the body is readily available, from the feet to the elbows, to bites in the face, while snaking your vulnerable areas away from his weapons.

People often ask: "if you train like this in GC, will you always have to go to the max in real life?" ABSOLUTELY NOT! Training for life-and-death survival situations means that you very easily develop the ability to back off depending on the scenario, better than with other training methods. BUT REMEMBER: if you take major league batting practice with a wiffle-ball bat, you'll never be able to hit the fastball when you have to. Lack of confidence creates inappropriate reactions under stress and this is where accidents involving over-use of force occur. Unlike most self-defense, GC training makes you LESS likely to hurt someone unnecessarily.


The 2-disc DVD.

GC Groundfighting reinforces all of this and more. Using modified Native American principles, you learn to fight with your legs from the ground in a very savage, unique and free manner that resembles a break dancer spazzing out on caffeine. The legs are rapidly jacknifed and swung like bludgeons from all angles while the arms tear, pound, gouge and shred.  It is not stylized or pretty and must be seen to be appreciated.  If you saw the Last of the Mohicans, there was a bit of it in there, but you might say Guided Chaos on the ground looks perhaps like Ba Gua mixed with Curly from the 3 Stooges. There is much more detail in our book than we can go into here, but this gives you some idea.

#11) YOUTUBE (GROUNDFIGHTING EXERCISE)
Free form leg strikes against multiple standing opponents using scissors, hook, axe, thrust and roundhouse kicks. Demo by GC Master Michael Watson.

#12) YOUTUBE (GROUNDFIGHTING WITH STICK PLUS KICKING VS. KNIVES)
A heavily padded practice stick (or cane) is used to protect trainees. The same kicks as in #9 above would be used simultaneously but are pulled here for safety reasons. The effect of a real stick or cane is shown against a large concrete brick.
Demo by GC Master Mike Watson.

#16)
YOUTUBE (EXCERPT FROM THE COMBAT CONDITIONING DVD)
Just a few of the over 44 solo exercises used to increase Balance, Body Unity, Looseness, Sensitivity, Proprioception and Adaptability. This DVD contains no instruction and is a workout video with a Native American Music soundtrack.
