It was by far the best defensive tactics training I’ve ever attended. The gun/knife defense and disarming techniques were excellent, and easy to learn. As you said, “Simplicity is Genius.” And the little bit of ground work that we got into was great. It really made me look at ground fighting a little differently.
With full contact fighting like UFC & Pride becoming so popular, and as officers train in Jui Jitsu, Judo, etc., I believe now we may be becoming too comfortable on the ground. Street fighting is not a controlled environment, and there will no referee to stop double and triple teaming. Or stop a subject from pulling a gun or knife once on the ground. You react how you train, so if your taken to the ground in a real street fight with no rules, will you pull guard? Or will you get back to your feet in 5 seconds and try to create distance, us weapons, etc.? It makes you stop and think. If your in law enforcement or corrections and have the opportunity, get in this class. I promise you, you won’t regret it.
BUT…… If your coming to the class to hang out with your friends and take long breaks, then this class is probably not for you. On the contrary, if you want to start learning within the first 10 minutes of class, work HARD for a good 8+ hours a day, and by end of a 32 hour week be exhuasted, bruised and know in your heart that you now posess techniques that greatly increase your chances of not just surviving, but winning in a gun or knife situation, then take Moni’s class.
God Bless and be safe.
