AggDefSol Brings Gun Defense into the Karate Dojo!

Feb 26th, 2009 | By | Category: Custom Course, Training Classes

Martial Artists from Blackhawk Martial Arts took away valuable lessons as instructors, Ric and Lee, introduced a gun into the fight. Blackhawk Martial Arts teaches a mix of many different styles including: Karate, Kickboxing, Boxing, Tae Kwon Do, Jui Jitsu, Aikido, and Wrestling. “Here at Blackhawk Martial Arts/Champion’s Center. We strive to integrate the best mixture of fighting styles to help students obtain whatever level of training they may be looking for.” said Clark Walters, owner Blackhawk Martial Arts.  AggDefSol was able to introduce the martial artists to scenario driven gun defenses that are designed to be practical outside of the ring.  Our training was based on real life situations and real life defenses, not a kata (a set of pre-determined moves that follow a fixed course). We have yet to see a real-life bad guy remember his half of the kata. 

The students ranged from black belts and black belt candidates to white belts, but all displayed the warrior spirit that make this class a true pleasure to teach.  The students all participated in a 90 minute seminar that provided a brief touch on the combative mindset, which introduces the concept of predator versus prey.  Clark went on to say, “The staff and students are excited by the introduction of the services offered by Aggressive Defensive Solutions. Instructors Ric Sutton and Lee Curling taught a great class on basic gun self defense and have sparked real interest in more of this type of training. Their aggressive approach to self-defense in a real-life setting proved very useful.”   

In the end the students took away the understanding that when faced with a gun they are in a lethal  or deadly encounter and to win they must apply a decisive and vicious amount of force against their attacker.   Because your best defense is an aggressive one!
