Military Hand-to-hand combat system for Special Forces comes to Phoenix

NTS VIPER Tactical Instructor Anthony Miles Shows an Explosive Move from VIPER Street Combat Self Defense under the watchful eye of founder John Nottingham

John Nottingham launched his Arizona school USA Martial Arts & Kickboxing in 1992 and recently opened a new training center in Phoenix to accommodate his Bodyguard Security & Training Company [Executive/Close Protection]. In addition to teaching kids good values through martial arts, Nottingham teaches military, law enforcement and the discerning civilian.

“There are no rules on the street when it comes to your survival or that of a loved one.”, says Nottingham.

Their methods are considered unorthodox to the mainstream self-defense or martial arts way of teaching. Nottingham’s approach is to break structure, conventional thinking and teach clients to think and operate outside the box. The majority of martial arts and self-defense systems pre-scribe rules and strict conformity, sportive emphasis or complex motor movements. Although well-intentioned, many tactical self-defense, fighting and hand-to-hand-combat instructors are retrofitting sportive and cultural tradition lifestyle martial arts to fit what they believe is effective self-defense.
Nottingham’s self-defense method, called VIPER, is designed to break things down into effective, simple self-defense steps and principles that can easily be adapted to a wide variety of individuals in varying dangerous situations.

Last Resort Handgun Disarm Defense

Military Origins
Nottingham and his team come from a unique backgrounds in the military, having served in Special Forces, Airborne units, law enforcement and a decades in the martial arts. In the early 90’s, Nottingham was asked by his Army company Commander to develop an updated, simple and effective hand-to-hand combat course as part of an experimental program. His research continues to this day as he stays on the cutting edge of combatives and defensive tactics. His client list includes those who serve in combat, on the street as law enforcement and bodyguards to protect VIPs.

Bodyguard Tactics for Strategic Self-Defense

“The best way to explain VIPER (his version of reality based self-defense) is the skills you would use to survive the most terrifying criminal assault situations you or your family can imagine. We cover the entire gamet from early detection for avoidance to the harsh reality of physical intervention such as gouging out an attackers eye as a last resort. We teach our clients how to manage situations most people don’t believe are possible to survive.”, said Nottingham

“When your families lives are in danger or your life is on the line, you can’t be thinking about rules or worrying about the wrong things. Part of the initial education is deprogramming the incorrect conditioning and beliefs people have about self-defense so that they can adopt an accurate and winning mindset. Self-Defense is a leadership role so our clients learn to be assertive when they have to.”

VIPER Self Defense is built on natural reflexes, physics, bio-mechanics and the physiological response to intense stress.

“Clients have refered to VIPER as an American Krav Maga type training due to it’s reliance on combative principles, simple and effective self defense. However, VIPER Evolution I does not emphasize the physical as much at this level as Krav Maga does. Instead we teach smart strategies to avoid, detect, diffuse, avoid and thwart situations before the begin. We find this is a faster method to efficacy. Krav Maga was designed for young, fit, military personnel so it is very intense and high risk training. I love the Krav Maga system and practice it, however it is predicated on high mobility, explosive movement and a degree of athleticism most people don’t have or maintain. We take pride in VIPER being much safer than Krav Maga and can reach a wider array of clients because VIPER isn’t designed just for young, resiliant, military soldiers.”


HOW IS VIPER SELF DEFENSE UNIQUE?

Take for example a criminal threatening your family with a gun. The natural instinct for an untrained person is to fixate on the weapon. VIPER teaches clients how to control that intense stress and mental function through proprietary conditioning training, the same used for training elite Special Forces operators for combat. The body’s stress reaction becomes a conditioned trigger to look for exits, cover, and opportunities an untrained individual, gripped by panic, would not see.

Background of VIPER Close Quarters Combat CQC
VIPER was developed by John Nottingham while serving in a reserve detachment of a Special Forces Unit. He was selected by his company commander due to his unique background in combative martial arts in order to develop a scientific, highly effective method of practical self-defense for Special Operations. It had to be able to beat other elite forces hand-to-hand and weapon close combat training.

What Makes VIPER Different
The key difference in VIPER is in it’s testing. It only takes techniques, tactics and strategies that can be quickly and effectively implemented by a user then tested under stress. To date, Nottingham and his team have run thousands of scenarios and gleaned invaluable feedback from the tactics used in the field and street.

During the 25 years he’s served teaching Martial Arts, Law Enforcement, Military, Nottingham updated and refined his method of practical self-defense, and after scientific study and observation, adjusted his system to teach it to the civilian men, women and children.

Nottingham’s training materials, research and unique approach has inspired numerous other instructors. His training videos and programs have been adopted by military, law enforcement, martial artists, bouncers, agents and bodyguards all over the world.

“It’s gratifying to get feedback from Police Officers or Military that our programs saved their lives in the field. That’s what this training is designed to do – protect and give the good guys the edge.”, said Nottingham

Realistic Self Defense Training. Will What I Know Really Work?

“At some point everyone will face a moment when they have to ask themselves if what they know about self-defense and safety will truly and honestly work when they need it most. It might be to protect their loved ones or at a time when they are out of shape, injured or in a unique environment. VIPER will give them newfound confidence.”

Nottingham is quick to point out that martial arts is great and has numerous benefits but it is not to be mistaken with specialized self-defense and personal protection training. I encourage good martial arts training but it needs to be properly placed in context. Martial Artists are by far our fastest adapting clients, once they grasp the fundamental shift in mindset. However, what we do in VIPER doesn’t look anything like a typical martial arts class.

Nottingham and his team will be hosting a special VIPER SELF DEFENSE training course in May. It is a three day VIPER intensive immersion course combining classroom, slow motion drills and scenario training with a fully padded mock assailant.

V.I.P.E.R. Personal Protection Bodyguard Tactics for Self Defense Security
Students will learn to deal with the most common street attacks and self-defense situations including punches, chokes, grabs, and attacks from various positions such as from behind and on the ground.

The class even sets up different environments to have the students apply the VIPER thinking and action steps to resolve or escape the situations. Students get to learn how to deal with the stress and anxiety of a real attack in crunch time and how to manage the adrenaline dump, rapid heart rate and how to focus on what matters most for survival.

Instructors encourage students and create a learning atmosphere of comfort and relaxed professionalism where cheering is as prevalent as learning. Nottingham explains, “We know it is a stressful subject so our goal is to make it as enjoyable experience as possible. Our clients often comment on how much fun they had while learning and want to come back. Our repeat business is amazing. We guarantee you come out transformed and thrilled with your experience or we refund your money in full.”

In class, students learn the techniques of:
o Punching
o Kicking
o Elbows
o Knees
o Headbutts
o Biting
o Eye gouging
o [and some things Nottingham says only go to clients and too graphic for public articles]

Clients learn to develop power in their attacks and the vulnerable places on the human anatomy to attack for the best results. VIPER Self Defense emphasizes targeting and strategy over perfecting techniques, teaching students to keep it simple and direct.

Brutal Reality Check
Clients are shown videos of actual crime footage, assaults and then discuss applying VIPER tactics and tools to learn from the situation and prevail. Although graphic, Nottingham emphasizes that we have to understand violence in order to thwart it.

Our of Shape? Even More Reason To Take VIPER
Nottingham says that he can teach any willing student despite age, physical make-up or limitation. “Everyone can improve his or her personal protection with this course. It’s not about beating the other guy into submission. Most of it is brains over brawn. We focus on what a client CAN do, not what they can’t. People are often amazed to find out that we are hard wired for self-defense. We just need a few tools to best bring it out.”
