Realistic Self Protection

Worthing Karate Academy




Martial arts were originally created by warriors, to maim, kill and win wars. The problem with modern martial arts is they seem to have forgotten this. Most of the time martial arts instructors are teaching techniques that wonít work in a real scenario. I worked as a bouncer for 15 years and have studied the art of karate for 35 years. In all my fights on the door I have never had the time to employ a complex martial arts move on someone who doing their best to remove my head. I know of skilled cage fighters who have wound up getting a good kicking because they were still reading from the rule book. The truth is a seasoned street fighter with no trained skills will easily beat a highly trained martial artist with no street fighting experience. Iím not saying martial arts are no good, Iím saying martial artists that have not been pressure tested in real life situations or high intensity scenario training are going to get seriously injured in a real life encounter. One of the most popular martial arts at this time is BJJ; itís a highly skilled sport, yes sport! Donít ever go to ground in a street fight or you are asking for a good head kicking from a couple of his mates. The aim of my training methods is to bridge the gap between the dojo and the street.

Working with real fighters

I trained in martial arts for 15 years; I had tough fights hard sparring and many cuts and bruises, but still felt untested in a real sense, so at the age of 36 I went and worked on the door. What the dojo canít prepare you for is people coming at you who really want to hurt you; people who will think nothing of pushing a glass in your face or neck, stamp on your head and laugh as they leave you in a pool of blood. Unlike the training hall or gym there is no time to think when it kicks off. Most of the fights I had, if Iím really honest I canít remember what I did to win them, but I learnt very quickly I did have to win them or I was going to be messed up. The mainstay of my time on the door was not in teams, but working one man doors and venues, when the fight was on I had to win or there was a good chance I would be dead. Scumbags are quite happy to play football with a bouncerís head once heís down. The only person watching my back was me.

My self protection methods are not just theory's tested out on compliant training partners. They have been fully tested on the pavement arena for 15 years as a doorman, so I really do know what works and what doesn't.

Traditional Combat Karate?

Traditional karate is a misused phrase

KARATE was originally devised as a fighting system, over the last 30 years politics wrestled the martial arts and especially karate out of the hands of the fighting man into the hands of a lot of people who just wanted to take your money. Now don't get me wrong there's nothing wrong with getting paid well for teaching what you're good at. Unfortunately the martial arts are full of people who are not actually very good at fighting.
