In the world of self defense training, the challenge of fighting in confined spaces is often polluted with myths, fantasy and misconceptions. While many approaches exaggerate the potential to incorporate the environment through elaborate, cinematic choreography and creativity, in reality, restricted space brings with it the restriction of perception, processing and reaction time, range of motion and the probability of reflex override. In this download we will simplify defense in confined spaces, addressing a select few high probability positions. You will learn how to make tension work for you rather than investing in the hopes of idealized relaxation and fine motor mastery that are unlikely to manifest under stress. We will look at how to grow our familiarity with the effects of range compression, how to integrate restricted breathing and contraction and how to apply confined spaces sensibility to all aspects of our training, from striking, weapons to ground fighting. This essential wake up call provides new ideas for dominating the clinch, managing and creating pressure and controlling your personal space.
