The Real Truth About VIPER Street Combat Personal Protection Self Defense & Bodyguard Training With John Nottingham

May 11, 2012
No More Deer-In-The-Headlights!
Viper taught me how to function clearly under stress, and channel the power of my adrenaline. If you know martial arts, VIPER magnifies your knowledge and training ten fold.
Phil Borgia, Insurance, Real Estate, Black Belt
 
“I Was Shocked…”
As a long time professional in martial arts, I was shocked at the VIPER program. I thought I could handle any situation, but VIPER introduced me to reality. It’s real, its in your face, and it works. I am a force to be dealt with.
David Bravo
Model, Robert Black Agency
Trained in Krav Maga
Professional Martial Arts Instructor
 
I Was Unprepared For a Fight!
Priceless training. I couldn’t believe how unprepared I was for a real confrontation. I learned more about street defense in the VIPER course than in 10 years of martial arts.
Tommy Brown
Police Officer
Martial Arts Champion
 
Two Strange Men Approached
I was able to use what I learned while out with my 5 year old daughter one evening. I backed two strange men off… and I believe I wouldn’t have known what to do and keep my daughter safe without this training.
L. Templeman
Former Federal Corrections Officer
 
“Life Transforming!”
I have used the VIPER skills. It is truly a positive, life transforming experience. You will not be the same person… and you really wont want to be.
Teresa “Tess” Jenkins
Actor
Martial Arts Instructor
 
TRS Review:
Why do the Spec Ops love this training? Cuz it’s super-fast to learn… and unbeatable in the field. These are all new cutting-edge skills. With no practice at all, you will be at home with extreme violence… and be able to USE your new skills when it comes down to “you or him” situations. Learn how to reduce ALL your “pre-fight” thinking to just 3 simple choices… the 4 super-accessible weapons hidden inside your body… how to recognize a true threat 6 times faster than “normal” people do! (Simple ways to judge the situation — allows you to safely ignore false threats, and react with stunning speed to real danger.)… how VIPER-trained combat-ready professionals control their emotions in crunch-time… how to take a gun away as easily as scooping a pair of scissors from a small child… how to demolish an attacker in the dark. (90% of attacks occur in low-light conditions — not in the bright dojo. You’ll be astonished how easy it is to fight in the dark, the way John reveals.). And a lot more.

Military Hand to Hand Combat Now Offered in Phoenix for Self Defense and Defensive Tactics (and a little bit on Tactical Bacon)

April 23, 2012

Open Letter To Law Enforcement, Security Agents, Corrections and Military:

Dear professional protector:

First let me start by saying thank you for your service to our communities, nation and the cause of protection. My name is John Nottingham and I’d like to invite you to consider a program I’m opening to a select group of like-minded individuals. It’s called IMPACT. Here’s a bit about it.

IMPACT Tactical Training for Defensive Tactics and Military Combatives

Not only will you get fit, you’ll get strong. Strength is a skill and that is what you will learn at IMPACT. It is a carefully designed curriculum that adapts to the individual user. Drawing on the strengths of Jeet Kune Do, Krav Maga and Military Hand to Hand combat concepts, the system is built on using superior strategy to resolve conflicts and survive hostile engagements.

The curriculum has been developed over the last twenty six years and has origins in American Military Hand to Hand (H2H), Hand to Weapon Close Quarters Combat (CQC).
o Functional Fitness
o Rehabilitating movement
o Emphasizes Adaptation
o Injury prevention
o Reverse engineered from tactical applications

A little on my background…

Military Origins
My in-depth research on this subject started when my company commander asked me to develop an updated military combatives program for hand to hand combat. At the time I was serving in an Intelligence Detachment supporting a Special Forces Airborne unit. The experimental trial was tested as part of a Physical Training program. That research continues to evolve over the last twenty plus years. Besides being an advanced Black Belt, Instructor and International competitor at the time, I think that part of the reason I was chosen was because I was one of the smallest and lightest men in the unit. If it could work for me, it could work for them.

IMPACT stands for Intense Mental Physical Applied Conditioning Training.

Professional Protectors Training
IMPACT fuses my experience in teaching people of all ages and abilities over my career how to effectively protect themselves. It is the best of the executive protection (bodyguard tactics), advanced threat assessment, military combatives, and personal training including therapeutic yoga for rehab and stress management. (Let’s face it, most of us combat athletes, veterans and operators have injuries we have to work around. Hello Airborne knees.) One of my strengths has always been fear management and creating simple solutions to complex self defense and defensive tactics problems.

Practical Tactical Self Defense
Today the word tactical is attached to almost anything that can be sold to gun and military enthusiasts. However, tactical in IMPACT refers to the specific tactics used in close quarters battle and survival situations. These tactics are specifically designed for a purpose.
Defending and countering:
o Handguns
o Long guns such as rifles and shotguns
o Punches
o Grabs
o Shoves
o Tackles
o Chokes
o Ground and pound & submissions

Functional Fitness “Fit to Fight”
IMPACT is as much mental conditioning as it is physical. That is why we have classroom with Powerpoint presentations, demonstrations and interactive small group education in addition to the functional physical fitness conditioning. Those with a military or SWAT background will recognize many of these drills because they draw upon elite team training concepts. This is an opportunity to reinforce the fundamentals, build a foundation for safer, smarter movement, as well as keep reactions sharp. In addition, clients learn some little known tactics from executive protection training, advanced threat assessment, and our own proprietary testing. They will observe crime footage of actual attacks, assassination attempts and ambushes to better prepare them for the tactical careers or skills they want to maintain.

Alternative to Pain Chasing – The Smarter Long Term Choice
Too many law enforcement, military and members in protective fields have been conditioned to chase pain. You can see the results of that mentality in their bodies and performance over time. I know that I was taught to chase pain (mind over matter – “If you don’t mind, it don’t matter.”) and it took its toll on my body. IMPACT is not about proving that you’re tough because if you’re an operator, you’ve already proven that.

Years of rehabilitation later, I have regained mobility and in some cases surpassed my conditioning from the past. IMPACT is designed to be the smarter approach to tactical strength training. IMPACT’s goal is to reduce destructive stress to the body and mind while maintaining a healthy level of adaptable, injury preventing fitness (readiness). That separates IMPACT from most other conditioning programs that cause injury, induce premature aging and encourage a go-hard-or-go-home mentality. Speaking from personal experience, IMPACT is a more evolved and mature approach to advancing and maintaining critical skill areas and health.

o Reduce fatigue
o Improve mobility & strength
o Improve response time
o Reduce and prevent injury
o Increase energy and improve health

Check The Ego At The Door
If you are willing to check you ego at the door, work smart and consistently with a group of like-minded individuals, then IMPACT is for you. This is not an MMA sport program for wanna-be fighters and thug types. It is not an alpha-male driven tribal experience and filled with wanna-be cool clubbers. The purpose of IMPACT is to build you up, not tear you down. IMPACT is designed to give you more energy, not wipe you out. IMPACT is designed for the professional operator in mind from beginning to end. We work with what our clients can do at their age, level of wellness and ability.

Membership is by interview and selection only. This helps keep it safe, professional and enjoyable for members.

We invite you to consider IMPACT.

Respectfully,

John Nottingham

The ABC’s of Personal Safety from a Security Self Defense Specialist

March 21, 2011

The ABC’s of Personal Safety from a Security Self Defense Specialist, Trainer and Speaker

Self Defense Tips – The ABC’s of Personal Safety and Security for Personal Protection

Self defense is something everyone knows that we should learn, yet few actually do. Rather than use a few self defense or fighting tips as an emotional pacifier, it is important to test and apply what you think you know. It is through this process that self defense competence is built. With self defense competence comes personal protection and security confidence. A good self defense instructor will ad to your peace of mind and help you use your innate survival signals and skills to bring to bear in protecting yourself and/or the ones you love.
When you learn to defend yourself you are less likely to have to because:

1. You tend to avoid potentially dangerous situations because you recognize them earlier
2. You are more likely to trust your intuition/gut feelings therefore act on them
3. Project more confidence which often removes you from the victim profile. Criminals like easy targets, not difficult ones.

HERE ARE A FEW OF OUR ABC’s OF PERSONAL PROTECTION – SELF DEFENSE STRATEGIES FOR PERSONAL SECURITY

Alert to Avoid Potentially Dangerous Situations
– Knowledge and Awareness of dangerous situations and how criminals operate
– Trusting instincts and Acting on intuition
Always observe safe habits and practices – Remember, we are always building habits – so practice good ones

Breathe and Be Calm by Believing you have options
– Belly Breath with Backpressure on exhale helps manage stress, adrenaline and fear
Be looking for opportunities, weapons, barriers, escape routes and targets
Be prepared with training and a plan but Be flexible

Communicate with Confidence and Commit
Clearly say and demonstrate directly what you mean and mean what you say
Change the Context of any situation you feel might lead to a violent encounter
Commit to your plan and execute with intensity

Distance
Whenever you increase distance, you increase time and options and usually deny the targets

Eyes on targets and Escape options
Eyes, neck, groin, knees, Everything’s a weapon, Escape

The Truth About John Nottingham’s Tactical Training in Arizona

September 20, 2010

08-27-10
John, (John Nottingham was at the time contracted with HELIX Tactical/Arizona Security Professionals)

Just a quick note, to thank you, and all of the cadre and staff, at AZ Security Professionals, for yesterday’s unarmed security guard training certification class. It was a fun, enjoyable and highly instructive session, which very much surpassed my expectations.

Having been in the Arizona Security business for over twenty years now, as a client receiving contract guard services, and as an employee of a contract Security company, I’ve seen a great deal of sub-par training and operations. ASP is definitely the cream of the crop, and I was so impressed, with everything I saw.

More to the point, your training style, broad knowledge, of a wide range of topics, and delivery is exceptional, and it was crystal clear, that you are a true professional and gentleman, with a tremendous amount of zeal, for your job and chosen profession. Thank you again, John, continued good luck to you, sir, and maybe our paths will cross again. Take care.

Steve Cantor

To Jim Harter
From R. Summers
I just wanted to thank you and your other instructors for an awesome class. I thought I would be bored and this would be a normal training session to get my guard card. I want to be the first to tell how wrong I was about that assumption. The instructors took a lot of time with everyone in the class to make sure we left with more then a piece of paper. I would recommend you to anyone seeking professional training.
Thank you!
R. Summers

11 August, 2010
Dear Jim Harter,
I just wanted to tell you that you guys saved my life. When I left class taught by your instructors, it changed my life. I even changed my diet. I am now better aware of how things can go wrong very quickly and now possess the skills to do something about it, while using what I was taught. If you guys needed a cheerleader, I would be your 300lb cheerleader. I loved it…loved it. I thought I was a bad ass, until you all proved me wrong and showed me what I did not know. WOW…WOW”
Thank you,

MMA Legend Dan “The Beast” Severn Teaches Arizona Police Defensive Tactics

August 28, 2010

# # #

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MMA Legend Dan “The Beast” Severn
Teaches Arizona Police Defensive Tactics

PHOENIX, Arizona (September 01, 2010) – Helix Tactical and USA Martial Arts honor local law enforcement, military and first responders by offering free defensive tactics training by UFC Hall of Famer and ASU wrestling legend, Dan Severn.

The training will be available from 6:30-8:30pm on Wednesday September 1, 2010 at the grand opening of the newest location of Helix Tactical at Tatum and Greenway roads in North Phoenix. The event will include a tribute to local law enforcement, military and first responders as part of the festivities.

“It is time that we demonstrate our appreciation to those who serve our country and community. We are honored to have true MMA Legend and Competitor, Dan Severn, to be a technical advisor, subject matter expert and instructor,” said James Harter, owner of Helix Tactical. “We have to face it, MMA is the fastest growing sport in the world and effects the way people are resisting officers. Dan provides the experience, leadership and skill set to help guide this integration of proven and highly efficient skills into defensive tactics for officer survival and the humane handling of suspects. It is designed to counter the bad guys’ MMA skills. It is also a tremendous confidence builder for officers to learn and stay healthy.”

Dan Severn, still active as a fighter, has over 95 state, national, and international wrestling titles under his belt. He has captured the attention of fight and wrestling fans all over the world since his 1994 debut in the Ultimate Fighting Championships [UFC]. Dan is known as “The Beast”, a name given to him by Jim Brown during one of his many fights in the UFC. The Beast’s world class wrestling skill, commitment, and desire have provided the foundation for his success.

The native of Coldwater, Michigan, Dan is the only Triple Crown UFC champion in the sport today. He began his career in the fight game as a Greco-Roman and freestyle wrestler in High School and continued as a collegiate wrestler at Arizona State University. Dan captured many local titles and several national and world titles, setting eight national records in his early career. He was inducted into Arizona State University’s Wrestling Hall of Fame at the end of his prestigious collegiate career.

After college, Dan continued on a quest to be the best amateur wrestler in the world. Numerous competitions from 1982 to 1994 took him to Japan, Hungary, Cuba, France, and Turkey. On each trip, Severn captured another title. Dan also secured 13 National AAU wrestling championships during those years. The Beast also tried his hand at coaching wrestling at ASU and Michigan State University as he continued to compete. He accepted all challengers in any no holds barred, or professional wrestling events. On May 17, 1996, Dan was crowned the UFC Superfight Champion in his home state of Michigan. He defeated “The World’s Most Dangerous Man”, Ken Shamrock to regain the title. In 1999, Dan reached a milestone by competing in his 4000th match.

In addition to his wresting career, Dan also holds Black Belts in the sports of Sombo, Judo, and JiuJitsu. He is a UFC Champion and has been inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame. Dan has also appeared on 48 Hours, 20/20, The Gordon Elliot Show, Nash Bridges, and many commercials.

John Nottingham, Co-Director of Training at Helix Tactical and President of USA Martial Arts says, “This is a great example of how Helix Tactical integrates multiple disciplines to provide the best solutions for our customers. Our expertise in tactical training, real life simulation and education made us the right choice for Arizona’s training programs. The grand opening event will introduce many locals to our services.”
