Since 1998 I have been teaching and writing about the importance of using behaviorally based and scenario-based combative systems to create confidence and knowledge.  Our research into fear management was ongoing, but the programs crystallized over a 10-year research period.

Now, more than 10 years after our first force-on-force simulation, this approach to street preparation has caught on and I'm proud to have been a part of this important martial evolution. More importantly, I'm extremely honored to receive requests for advanced training and certification from other professionals in the martial arts, defensive tactics & combatives fields who want to include our research into their classes and communities.
