Training - combatives training

"Martial arts are something you do with somebody. Combatives is something you do to somebody, or on somebody" - Combatives expert - Kelly McCann

Our weekly adult class (maximum of 10 students) trains every Wednesday 7 - 8.15pm. Our central training venue is located in the tranquil village of Dalwood - situated between Axminster and Honiton in East Devon.

Contact us for fees and venue details. No belts, no gradings, no bullshit! No one gets to watch, if you turn up you're training!

Full-force Combative's methods of counter-violence have been rigorously tested both inside and outside the gym and dojo. The skills we teach have been learned and distilled in order to make them accessible to most people of all ages. Our self-protection skills are direct, powerful and easily recalled under duress.

Our counter weapons programme has been borne out of real-life gun and knife scenarios both in the UK and abroad - including military operations. The physical aspect only makes up one facet of our curriculum - which must be addressed should we have no other option and escape is impossible.

We also train how to protect a third party, such as a family member, should the need arise and we have to intervene in an altercation on their behalf.
The other facet is a set of personal security measures. These consist of various cognitive skills that enable you to be aware of and in tune with your environment - with the aim of spotting potential trouble before it develops - giving you the priority option to avoid and escape, which is almost always the best option.  
We also address the psychology and mindset pertaining to violence. Helping students to understand how to cope with fear, stress, panic and adrenaline - as these can have a debilitating effect on our ability to operate effectively under stressful conditions.
Unlike Martial Arts, we only deal with real-life street encounters and threats to our person, and in developing the attributes necessary to deal with the same. We don't train in any methods that can't be used outside the gym.
There are no Kata, forms or sporting applications of any kind. Everything is tested under pressure - so what is passed on to the student has the highest probability of success.

If you have a lifetime of self-defence/martial arts experience or none come and train with us and open your eyes to the real civilian self-protection that is Combatives! Speedily learn techniques that have been taught to Navy Seals and the SAS - techniques that have been directlt taught to me by those who teach Special Forces. Learn how to deal with fear and arenaline, and how to summon up and control aggression. Whether you have to deal with the pub bully, road rage, multiple attackers, or even a home invasion, our system covers all these areas.
