You Die In The Gaps


We believe that people “die in the gaps”, which means that your training should be based on defending yourself against realistic attacks by armed or unarmed attackers in real-time. Your value and belief systems need to be in place; in other words, you must know what you are prepared to do to defend yourself, when you are prepared to take these actions and also understand the consequences of your actions, both morally and legally. This reduces the possibility of believing in skills that may feel good in the class environment but crumble when put to the test for real. If a large percentage of your training with a partner is not happening in real-time (full force, continuous attacks), then your defenses cannot develop correctly and there is a good chance that you will die in the gaps.

We pride ourselves as solution finders in an ever evolving chaotic environment. These are the elements and tools that we harness to become Master Navigators of Chaos.
