The Chaos of Combat


Born of combat on the violent streets of South Africa, the MDW Training Methodology provides an environment and a framework to effectively navigate the Chaos of Combat. Our Framework provides our Instructors, Trainers and Students with an understanding of all the Dimensions that are required to survive, engage and dictate general and specific challenges that we may face in a violent attack. The MDW Methodology and Framework provides context and a matrix to bring together elements of the key dimensions of combat.

Our training is blade focused but incorporates extensive close quarter firearm, empty hand and improvised weapons, almost anything that can be used to save your life in the face of a violent attack. Martial artists who are experienced in other systems are able to easily insert their techniques and tactics into the framework to complement their knowledge.
