What is Adrenal Stress Conditioning Through Scenario
Experience has proven to us that Scenario Based Training is
the key to effective "real world" self defense training
. This is true whether you are forced to defend yourself with your
bare hands, with a gun , a knife or any other such tool.
This is because the real problem people have in defending themselves
against the criminal element is not a lack of "martial arts" training
or even their speed or marksmanship with a gun. One may be a strong martial
artist in the dojo and/or a very quick & accurate pistol shot on the range,
but neither of these qualities alone may generally be enough to
permit that person to prevail in an actual assault.
The real challenge that you will face in defending yourself or your loved ones
is not so dependent on your knowledge of hand to hand fighting techniques or
on your "score" on the pistol range. Your survival is much more dependent
ability to handle the often overwhelming effects of the adrenaline rush.
That adrenaline rush is the one thing that you can absolutely count on happening
to you in any life and death situation and under these effects even an otherwise
good martial artist may "flail" ineffectually and an experienced
firearms person may simply "freeze up" when faced with a real attack
. This "choke" phenomenon is a very natural response too, in the
absence of proper adrenal stress training (or prior actual combat experience).
The criminal element understands and counts on this fact too! He expects his
victim to "freeze up" even if only for that first critical instant.
He has learned that even a few seconds of hesitation are all he needs to "safely" overcome
or control his victim. These predators are very seldom really looking for a
fight at all, what they are looking for is a safe victim. Hence, if
you do not choke, but instead you act immediately and decisively, then the
criminal is often not at all well prepared to deal with this.
This is precisely what our RMCAT programs train you to do because the scenarios
you will face at RMCAT will be so real that your body will experience that
adrenal rush and this is the only way for you to learn how to overcome
it . . . and beyond that, this is the only way for you to learn to use its
tremendous power in a crisis too! No previous martial
arts or firearms training is required for any of the RMCAT BASICS classes and
we are not teaching any particular martial art either. What we are instructing
is effective and applied self defense for today's world. At this training you
will discover that you can do far more than you may have imagined and you
will have a fantastically fun time making that discovery too!
