However, with a very small investment in a bag, small gloves (MMA style) and a rubber knife and gun, your training will be even more comprehensive. These items can be purchased online, and we give you the very low cost resources.
  • You can use simple "mock up" weapons, etc which have zero cost for your training (or to get started). Many of the lessons require none of the "practice weapons".
  • You need general good health and no medical restrictions on exercise. Many progressions, variations and modifications are given for different ability levels. So, you are always appropriately challenged.

This comprehensive self defense training course is for men and women of all sizes and ability levels. You are taught exactly how to protect yourself in public or in your home. You will gain the confidence and techniques needed to become aware, avoid and defend against unarmed attacks, as well as those with a stick, knife and gun.

  1. In Your Home
  2. At the ATM

  • Here's something to think about....

    We both know it's a dangerous world, and sometimes in your own neighborhood. Some people stick their head in the sand and ignore the current reality, and the reality of the near future. Our reality is that you can never be too prepared to protect yourself, your family and your property. You must have the SKILLS & ABILITY to HANDLE THE SITUATION FAST!

    Not to worry, we have a solution for you. Survival Combat Fitness is a complete online training system that gives you a significant strategic advantage over your attackers. You will be given step-by-step instruction on how to make your body move and feel like a soldier fresh out of boot camp. And, you will be given advanced fighting techniques previously taught to the FBI, CIA, Navy SEALS, SWAT and other high level officials. 90% of these techniques are NOT what you see in the UFC or other sanctioned events. Why? Because these are deadly techniques and not for sport. This isn't about winning a title or a trophy, it's about getting out alive, and with all your family and possessions intact.

    If you think you are physically and mentally ready, you're not. In fact, when you complete your Survival Combat Fitness training, you will realize just how much you are ahead of all others who think they have it figured out.

    It's time for you to step up and be SCF ready! We'll teach you everything you need to know.
