I am happy to announce the formulation of WWII COMBATIVES/CQC/COMBAT JUDO TRAINING PROGRAMS. I cannot express how excited and motivated I am about PROFESSIONAL EDGE
Professional Edge Combatives is a joint collaboration, a task force, if you will of professionals in the field. These men are former and current law enforcement personnel who also served in the military, friends and associates that are highly trained and knowedgeable.
My own personal training in military combatives started in basic training in United States Army Military Police Corps, and later in civilian law enforcement. By 1989, I was a certified instructor in law enforcement in self defense techniques and the use of force. I am also a 2nd degree black in judo certified coach and member of USA judo.
Another person,friend and colleage involved is Pablo Torres. Pablo served 8 years in United States Marines Corps (4 years active, 4 years reservist) has 19 years experience in Law Enforcement. He is a CJSTC certified Law Enf. Firearms, Chemical Agent, Taser and Defensive Tactics instructor for Polk County Sherriff Office. Yondan in Bujinkan budo taijutsu and currently a blue belt in Gracie JiuJitsu.
Pablo and I have trained together, discussed and collaborated on more than a few occassions on the subject of combatives. We feel it's time to produce a professional WWII combatives training program. A learning program forged in the true spirit from which the combatives program of our very first special forces groups were developed.
There are people out there now offering very poor WWII combatives courses online who have no real understanding of combatives or reality based self defense. Though there are qualified instructors out there, it's my opinion that these types of programs aren't really represented in the true spirit of which it was intended.
Another problem is that there are those who really have no qualifications to teach combatives. Some make false claims and in a few cases a few even go as far to display faked or photo shopped miltary paperwork to attempt to back up their fraudulent claims. However there are indeed legitimate sources available out there that one can access training from.
My colleages and I believe our program stays true to the systems origins while at the same time, effectively utilizing this often thought antiquated and combat-validated system in the present. Most importantly EVERYONE involved with PROFESSIONAL EDGE COMBATIVES is experienced and qualified.
Real world violence isn't make believe or fantasy. For most people it is what they see in the news, it is the fear of being attacked, being beaten, being hurt. The fear of having someone break into your home and kill you, the fear of being abducted. Nowadays it's also the fear of terrorism.
Violence is something that hits hard and fast. It isnt make believe it is REAL. It nails you unexpectedly like being broad sided by a car in an automobile accident, it's sudden, it happens from out of nowhere.
The harsh reality is that violence has to be dealt with in real terms. We must forget the concept of fair play, or rules of sportsmanship, of political correctness when dealing with violent encounters.
Most street assaults and violent one on one robberies are won, lost, or over, one way or the other in less time than it took you to read this paragraph......Which means 3 to 10 seconds.
Why Judo? Simply because judo was/is the basis for military and police combatives all over the world. Why law enforcement professionals? It's simple as well, our law enforcement are the first responders to a multitude of Violent situations. Who best to go for knowledge and experience in regards to protecting yourself from becoming a victim of violence.
Professional Edge Combatives is starting off the new year with videos online articles pertaining to combatives. However the new year will kick off our own soon to be publication of the book GET TOUGH by W.E. Fairburn most republications of the book that is in public domain really haven't done this manual by Fairburn any justice.
GET TOUGH is often sold exclusively as a stand alone training source by those who admittedly arent qualified to teach the material. Professional Edge combatives edition is updated with in introduction that explains how to properly train the techniques covered in the book, the importance of being fit and physically being prepared and how to prepare is also covered.
Professionalism is knowing how to do it, when to do it and doing it. No government, military or law enforcement agencies in the world go to a fake ninja or a martial arts instructor with no knowledge in these areas... So get the edge, a PROFESSIONAL EDGE.
