Our FightLab Philosophy

The FightLab Combat Arts teaches has a comprehensive syllabus, made up of two elements:

  1. Non-Physical – Elements of personal security knowledge
  2. Physical –  Drilled physical combat skills. Drilling combat skills have proven to make techniques highly adaptable and retainable under the affects of ‘Fight Duress’ such as adrenaline-fear, confusion-disorientation, fatigue & pain! Most if not all, of these emotional elements will be present during a potentially violent confrontation!

For all civilian self protection, the emphasis is placed around Avoidance, Evasion, Escape or Possible De-escalation! After all the best Self Protection of all is ‘Don’t Be There!’ Establishing a good level of situation awareness, in addition to learning very quickly how to recognise pre-threat cue behaviour is what will enable you, (in the main) to meet those objectives! These personal security elements formulate our ‘Non-Physical’ skills.

If USE OF FORCE is required, where possible, we would aim to be pre-emptive, employing an interceptive physical response that will put a STOP to the threat both quickly and clinically! Here we would always strive to respond on a force to threat parallel that is considered both REASONABLE & NECESSARY (as can best be ascertained in the moment) in order to facilitate an ESCAPE at the earliest opportunity!

It is Important to gain an understanding of the laws relating to Self Defence within the country that you live in! Please note that everything we do at The FightLab is geared toward methods of ‘Counter Violence’ from a street perspective! Although we do train MMA (and some compete) FightLab Combat Arts is NOT Sport, there will be aggressive role play & dialogue with profanity, as well as progressively harder training that will take the students into the realms of fully kitted simulation & scenario training!

We train as realistically as safely possible, simulating live non-compliant attacks in both training and environments. You will learn to operate effectively in spaces of confinement such as stairwells, restrooms, elevators, alleyways and vehicles.
