These courses are all about the universal essence of combat. The recognized "Hammer and Nails, Nuts and Bolts" of hand, stick, knife and gun combatives. They present the common problems and problem-solving you will encounter, on down to the uncommon ones.

From this experimentation and education you build your own "method, "approach," "style" or "system" and responses based on your own size, strengths and skill.

These terms are generic and semantic at some level. But I do not believe I teach a method or style. You make your own house from these nails, nuts and bolts.


And I will never tell or dictate to you how you should fight. That is your personal decision.

In the end, through experimentation You should collect your favorite 5, 10 or 15 fighting tricks that suit your size, shape, strength and situations.

But as an instructor you do need to know and teach more so that your students can properly experiment and make the best selections.

We are not all Master Kwon. Not his shape. Not his size. We are not cookie cutters and cannot all fight the same.
