Certify in One of Our Workshops



WEAPONIZE-YOUR-BODY WORKSHOP CERTIFICATION


Weaponize-Your-Body is our core  self-preservation workshop course. This workshop is designed to be taught to anyone, specifically people with no previous self-preservation training. The workshop is ideal as a self preservation experience or short term course for companies, teams or individuals.

Throughout the certification process you will be taught how to deploy 4 modules. Each module consists of several key segments that make up the workshop teaching blocks. Modules  can be deployed directly one after the other, or over a few days depending on the audience you are teaching.


FIGHT PHYSIOLOGY

It’s crucial to be able to teach students at least a baseline of what happens to their body when faced with a potential interpersonal threat. This module of the course focuses on the physiological changes that take place in an interpersonal violent experience, with tactics to help a student deal with those automatic changes.


VERBAL JIU-JITSU

The number one priority in any potential violent encounter against other human beings is to be able to leave the area safely without ever getting into a ‘fist fight’. In this module you are taught how to teach others to apply our COATS method of deescalation, and other strategies and tactics.

SITUATIONAL AWARENESS

People are typically not aware of their surroundings, especially in this day and age where everyone is glued to their smartphone. In this module, we teach you how to ensure that the students you train are situationally aware, and understand exactly what that means, and how to deploy it as a skill.


PRIMAL DEFENSE

Focusing on high percentage, easily learned primal defense and offensive tactics, you will learn how to teach others how to keep themselves physically safe. The techniques you will learn are applicable to teaching someone with no previous background in using their body as a weapon, with the focus on being learned quickly enough to give a person a fighting chance.


STREET-JITS WORKSHOP CERTIFICATION


While we love competitive style Jiu-Jitsu, it isn’t designed for self preservation. Our Street-Jits workshop bridges the gap between grappling for sport, and grappling for self-preservation. This workshop will show you how to teach others to deploy modern, up-to-date Jiu-Jitsu skills designed specifically for self-preservation.

Throughout the certification process you will be taught how to deploy several key modules. Each module consists of key segments that make up the core teaching blocks of each module. Modules can be deployed directly one after the other, or over a few days depending on the audience you are teaching.

This workshop fits seamlessly into any Jiu-Jitsu program.

FIGHT PHYSIOLOGY/SITUATIONAL AWARENESS/VERBAL JIU-JITSU

Taken from our groundbreaking Weaponize-Your-Body program, this section of the course focuses on what happens to the human body in a fight, what is and how to improve situational awareness, and how to deescalate personal confrontation with Verbal Jiu-Jitsu. In Academies that do coach some aspects of Jiu-Jitsu for ‘self-defence’ these topics are almost never covered, yet are paramount when one considers the realities of interpersonal violence.


PRIMAL JIU-JITSU TACTICS

In this module of certification, we will teach you which positions and submissions are best applied in self-preservation both standing up, and on the ground. In addition being on the ground isn’t always the best place to be when you need to survive interpersonal violence, we will show you how to teach others to get back to their feet safely.

STREET TAKEDOWNS

Imagine doing a technically perfect double leg takedown on asphalt? Like it or not, when you think about street defence, you will be required to modify many things taken for granted and taught in Jiu-Jitsu Academies. Takedowns are one of those key areas that need to be readapted. In this section of certification we will teach you which takedowns are high percentage for self-preservation.


WORST CASE SCENARIO TRAINING

A BJJ Black Belt with no self-preservation skills, can find themselves being knocked back to a white belt after the first punch is thrown. Crucial to applying Jiu-Jitsu in self-preservation is knowing how to survive a striking based opponent. Think escaping the mount for instance when someone is punching you in the face. In this module we cover key areas of concern for any Jiu-Jitsu practitioner who seeks to deploy their grappling skills in self-preservation and survive.


EDGED DEFENSE WORKSHOP CERTIFICATION


Teaching someone to survive an edged weapon attack is serious business.

What is concerning is that there is a lot of misinformation and seriously flawed training methodology when it comes to defending an edge weapon both in the public domain, but more disconcerting in the world of martial arts.

Our EDGED weapons course takes a pragmatic, real world approach to surviving EDGED weapons. There’s no sugar coating, or magic bullet formula – just the raw realities of surviving edged weapons, which may invariably mean surviving on the edge of living.

Throughout the certification process you will be taught how to deploy several key modules. Each module consists of key segments that make up the core teaching blocks of each module. Modules can be deployed directly one  after the other, or over a few days depending on the audience you are teaching.


FIGHT PHYSIOLOGY/SITUATIONAL AWARENESS/VERBAL JIU-JITSU

Taken from our groundbreaking Weaponize-Your-Body program, this section of the course focuses on what happens to the human body in a fight, what is and how to improve situational awareness, and how to deescalate personal confrontation with Verbal Jiu-Jitsu. These aspects of self-preservation training are paramount when one considers the realities of interpersonal violence especially when edged weapons are involved.


THE MOVING BLADE

In this section of training we begin to add movement in blade attacks. This increase the complexity and begins to imitate reality. Here students learn to engage or disengage when necessary against an edged weapon carrying assailant.

FACING THE BLADE

Most people who want to learn how to defend themselves against an edged weapon have some idea on the dangers of that weapon, but they themselves have never moved around with a blade, or considered how it may be used. In this first part of training we spend time on static defense against the blade before moving on to a more realistic feel of what it would look like in real life. This gives the time necessary for a person to situate themselves within the framework of dealing with an edged weapon.


'HOT KNIFE RANGE'

At this stage of the course we try to make the experience as real as possible, while still keeping safety in mind. The drills are now more realistic, mixed with unpredictability and a active unpredictable knifer situation. This concluding section draws home how dangerous edged weapons are, and while we may have taught people what to do when engaging an edged weapons assailant – the truth is, getting out of there is always the best option.
