Rapid Assault Tactics

We run weekly Rapid Assault Tactics (R.A.T) classes. Military self defence system incorporating Bruce Lee’s Original Jeet Kune Do Concepts, Filipino Martial Arts and Grappling. The RAT is simply the most effective modern-day self-defence. Extremely effective and streamlined, designed to work in the very worse self defence situations.

Rapid Assault Tactics were built for the US Special Forces like the Navy SEAL's, FBI, CIA & many more. This is Sifu Paul Vunak’s “Military Technology”.

In Rapid Assault Tactics you will learn:

Striking: Striking-based training that is both defensive and offensive; emphasis on footwork and “close-range” fighting. Use of punches, elbows, hammer-fists, knees, kicks, headbutts.

Street Grappling: Develop the skills for stand-up grappling (throws, takedowns etc.) as well as learning how to fight off the ground and regain your feet again.

The R.A.T is broken down into the 3 main phase of the Rapid Assault Tactics, they are:

  1. Interception/Destruction
  2. Pressure
  3. Termination
There is also training involving weapons, grappling and a mass attack.

Part of the Police Martial Arts Organisation

Police Martial Arts is open to all Police Officers as we think it is imperative that they keep on  top of both their physical skills and fitness levels. However many don't feel that they can maintain a regular training regime at a set club due to shift patterns. This scheme will allow them to train at any CMAA registered club at a discount, at a time that suits them as membership is direct with the CMAA rather than any specific club. Find out more here...
