Well done to all our students in Bracknell, Maidenhead and Windsor over the last month who have been learning their new self defence techniques as part of their grading syllabus.
All our self defence techniques comes from the revolutionary Fight SMART System. A simple, effective and easy to learn system that could potentially save your life.
Why is the Fight SMART System so effective ? Here are some reasons why…
The Fight SMART System includes techniques from Krav Maga, Jeet Kune Do, Karate, Jiu Jitsu, Eskrima, Filipino Boxing, Kickboxing and Thai Boxing. So, it is well rounded system that can deal with all types of attacks.
It adheres to Guthrie’s Definition Of Skill in that a person will ‘have the ability to bring about some end result with maximum certainty and minimum outlay of energy or of time and energy. ‘
This means that not only can the individual achieve the required performance goals during training but that they recall and achieve the skills taught when under high emotional arousal (eg being attacked by a mugger).
If a skill is difficult to learn in a training environment it will be difficult to apply in a real situation. If this is the case then the skill being taught will have a high degree of failure. This is why the Fight SMART System techniques are simple and direct.
It also adheres to Hicks Law. This law ‘describes the time it takes for a person to make a decision as a result of the possible choices he or she has. By increasing the number of choices a person has will increase the decision time before action is taken’.
Therefore, in the Fight SMART System, we provide simple responses using gross motor skills which are direct and easy to remember. We do not overload students with multiple options and flashy techniques which have no place in realistic self defence.
It uses Gross Motor Skills which are simple, large-muscle group actions. This includes basic fighting skills like a palm strike or a Thai boxer’s knee strike for example. Unlike fine and complex motor skills, gross motor skills DO NOT deteriorate under stress. In fact, they are enhanced by the affects of fear and stress.
We filmed some basic Fight SMART System techniques in class this week. Check out this video to see some of the self defence techniques we teach in Bracknell, Windsor and Maidenhead:
