The goal of Integrated Combatives training is the seamless integration of empty hand,
edged and impact weapons, and firearms for personal defense.
This specific class will focus on fundamental concepts and techniques of empty hand
combatives, both standing and grounded.
Course topics will include conflict avoidance skills, recognizing pre-assault cues,
defensive posture and strategies, and basic strikes and kicks.
We will practice takedown defense, how to minimize risk of injury if taken down, and
basic groundfighting and escape techniques.
Everything taught in the course will be practiced with an understanding that either
party may be armed and weapons may come into play during the conflict.
This course will require moderate physical exertion. There will be light contact during
some drills. Martial arts experience and a high level of fitness, while valuable, are not
mandatory for this introductory level class.
Wear loose, comfortable clothing and shoes suitable for training.
Training weapons will be provided for class use.
Drone or training versions of your preferred carry weapons are welcome.
Live blades or firearms will not be allowed on the training floor. Carry firearms may
be worn if they have been disabled by the installation of a training barrel or similar
