This past weekend I flew to Houston, TX to attend an excellent course for trainers of self-defense in the MovNat organization. This is not martial arts, but rather combatives, meaning it’s all about being practical and nothing about being fancy or even “fair”. To give you an idea, the key targets to best survive a real street fight are: 1) eyes, 2) throat, 3) groin. This quote by our humble yet incredibly qualified and competent instructor Cedric “Vic” Verdier also sums things up:
I don’t want to cause pain; I want to break their bodies.
I brought my gear to capture the event and get some portraits, the results of which can be seen by clicking below:
