Rocky Mountain Combat Applications Training
In RMCAT you will
both experience and overcome the number
one problem in real world self defense. That # 1 problem is not about "physical
techniques" at all either. The number one problem either trained or untrained
people experience in an actual self defense situation is the "adrenal rush"
While it is true that about half of the attendants of these classes are black
belt instructors in various styles, the other half are not and many of them have
never had a lesson in their lives. No previous self defense or martial arts training
at all is required to apply to the RMCAT course.
The fact is trained or untrained, when it comes to a real world self defense
situation if you are not accustomed to the adrenal stress dump , or
if you have never trained under that adrenal state, then even years of martial
arts training may not help you. Indeed, that training may not even be available
to you in a true crisis because of the disorientation
and loss of motor skills and judgment that is so often caused by that previously
inexperienced "adrenal dump". This is precisely why the main problem in actual
self defense is dealing with the adrenaline factor. The course will demonstrate
that fact to you beyond any question whatsoever. But the course will also show
you that you were born with the natural ability to overcome and even utilize
the power of that adrenal rush to overcome your enemy.
We have all heard the stories of people doing seemingly impossible physical
feats of speed or strength under adrenal stress. Familiar examples being the
parent who somehow manages to lift a small car off their child after an accident. Or
perhaps the soldier in combat who somehow manages to drag a comrade to safety
despite his own horrific wounds such as the loss of limbs or even injuries that
prove fatal only moments after he gets his comrade to safety. The martial
arts are rich with such tales as well. Ancient "martial masters" are often
reported to have overcome what seemed impossible odds and numbers.
These things can be seen as "mystical" and perhaps they are in a certain ,
limited sense. But after nearly ten years of conducting these classes I have
habitually seen that everyone has the ability to tap into this inner, personal power. It is just that they have not
had the circumstances that elicit and demand an expression of that inner power.
Ironically, modern life tends to distance us from this power too, ... and thus
also from a very important part of our very own being.
