And some of the other foundation ideas I think about....
-The "Who, What, Where, When, How and Why" Combat Equation
This can be taught at the Army war College or a small citizen self defense course.
-Myth of the Duel (it's a mixed weapons, no-rules, ambush-to-showdown world)
-Reducing the Abstract...in training. (Making the Surreal - real.)
-Minimization of Wound Theory and the Tenacity of Life Theory
-Seamless transition of tactics from standing to ground.
"Practice something standing? Try it on the ground." This is a mandatory survival basic.
-Maximize seamless transition training of hand, stick, knife, gun where possible
-A solid Unarmed Combat course is also the foundation for all mixed-weapon fighting
-"I will never tell you how to fight your fights!" Fighting methods are an individual's
selection process in the end, after proper education, experimentation and exercise
- Some level of acting is required to successfully teach reality
- "Fortune favors the prepared"
- Physical size matters.
- Moving...Combat "footwork" includes all down-on-ground maneuvers, sport/ring footwork
AND obstacle course work, without weapons, and with all modern weapons in hand.
- Thrive in Chaos. - "Expect Chaos. Plan for Chaos. Thrive in it" - list to continue as I recall my notes
These and other topics are sometimes written about here on the forum, or they are written about in my blog. http://www.hockscqc.com/blogs/index.html
