is a modern self defence system derived from Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do. Originally designed for US Navy SEAL Team Six, R.A.T has been adopted by FBI, and CIA and many police department SWAT teams through the US.
A street fight is not confined to a weight class, there is no 'tapout' and no referee to decide when a fighter is too injured to continue. Practitioners always train with the assumption that attackers are bigger, stronger, and has “friends”. R.A.T streamlines Jeet Kune Do. Techniques are chosen for efficiency and realism and include biting, eye gouging, striking with the head, elbows, knees, fighting on the ground, empty hand or with weapons. R.A.T is strategic system of fighting designed to neutralise attacks through destruction or interception, to provide forward pressure to off-balance the attacker, and enter and terminate the threat as quickly as possible.
Unfortunately in this day & age many young people carry weapons. R.A.T teaches people to find & fight with an 'equalizer', be it a pen, a stick, a bottle, a coffee cup, a walking stick or an umbrella.
