Research Based Training

We believe that you either train for reality, or you train to lose. Where some people try to change reality to fit their training, we change our training to fit reality. We regularly study the statistics and realities of real world violence, bringing you the lessons, making sure our training remains immediately relevant to the modern enemy. Here are some statistics from our latest survey into violent crime:

Percentage of assaults where victim was outnumbered
Percentage of assaults where victim was knocked to the ground
Percentage of assaults involving weapons
Percentage of assaults resulting in Adrenal Freeze
Percentage of assaults begun with an overhand right punch to face or neck

    Lt. Col. Charlie Crowe, Commanding Officer, 1 Royal Gurkha Rifles and Commander British Forces Brunei:

    "Will Bayley has a thorough knowledge of the psychology and physiology that underpins close quarter fighting.  This gave real depth to the practical training he delivered, which he had painstakingly tailored to the particular requirements of this unique unit.  His instruction was excellent throughout and he very quickly gained the respect of my experienced PTIs.  A highly impressive professional."
