VIPER Personal Protection – Practical and Sophisticated Self Defense for Personal Security

April 25, 2012

VIPER is the foundation for the hand-to-hand combat system of the security agents and protective teams (bodyguards) at Nottingham Sword & Shield Security. You will see concepts, principles and drills from the VIPER system used by U.S. Military and law enforcement personnel. VIPER personal protection (aka VIPER Street Combat)  is not a traditional martial art nor typical self defense course.  

Based on simple practical and proven principles it takes advantage of the bodies instinctive movements.  It is an innovative reality-based system that is designed to teach real self defense in the shortest possible time.

You will learn to defend against:

  • chokes
  • grabs, holds & bearhugs

As well as weapons countermeasures including:

  • guns
  • knives
  • clubs  

Just as important, we teach people to function during the stress and shock of a sudden, violent encounter. Tested on the battlefield, on the job, and in the streets, VIPER’s practical approach to self defense will make you safer and more secure.

Violence
Stopping, or intercepting violence at its source through recognition, assessment and neutralization. VIPER is a course about winning, surmounting incredible odds, and quickly anticipating, eliminating or managing a threat in a variety of situations based on context.

Interdiction
VIPER strategy disrupts the threat and aims to keep you from harm. VIPER students learn to change the format, tempo, and style of conflict with clever and deceptive strategies that catch their opponents off guard. This enables VIPER trained individuals to stay one step ahead. VIPER teaches to attack threat and seize the initiative to dictate the outcome. It deals with neutralizing violence by any means necessary and only one of those modalities may be the use of physical force.

Personal
VIPER is made so that anyone can use his or her individual abilities and situation to adapt and win. Additionally it is designed for those who are out of shape and my have other limitations. You will develop your own safety plan and arsenal of skills centered on your individual needs and experiences.

Evolutionary
VIPER teaches concepts so that student’s techniques improve over time and evolve into the response that works best for them. Additionally the concepts are like planted seeds that grow in time in students. The strategy used by VIPER evolves and adapts to fit virtually every situation that could arise.

Responses
VIPER students learn how to solve problems proactively and/or counter offensively, not simply react to them. It is a response to potential violence and the threat of being a potential target. VIPER graduates seize control and take the conflict to their arena where they can dominate and win. VIPER is designed for and used when responding to hostile situations and a high level threat.

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

Bored with the Gym Scene?
Most exercise programs get boring. The problem is that most fitness programs fail to have clear goals or teach new things so it becomes mind-numbing. Nobody wants to be exercising like a hamster on a wheel with no interest or excitement. That’s why so many people join a gym only to fail in their fitness goals and soon feel discouraged and quit.

The Secret to Lifelong Health and Fitness Success
The success in the results of the USA Martial Arts IMPACT MMA physical training program is supported by personal development and an exciting mixed martial arts curriculum (for self-defense, not sport). The student learns concepts and receives coaching that keeps them on track like focus, goal setting, self discipline, and confidence, which are inherent in our Martial Arts training. It is like having your own personal trainer and success coach all in one. The best thing of all is you will receive incredible physical benefits and personal development traits, while receiving the empowerment that comes through the self-defense training that will be invaluable as you learn the skills needed to protect yourself and your family.

If you’re interested in traditional styles like Karate, Taekwondo, Hapkido, Kung Fu or Muay Thai Kickboxing, Jeet Kune Do and reality based self defense, USA Martial Arts may be the school you’re looking for. Give us a try! Beginners, Kids and Family are a specialty. We would love the opportunity to teach you.
