North of the Road... Part 3

Part I
Part II


On we rode northward to the cross road ahead of us that marked the line. Five beside me and my boys spreading out like shadows through the night. I did not slow the canter of my horse as we crossed over that imaginary line. There was no hesitation. What I desired and what I wanted was beyond it to the north and I aimed to get it.

It seemed a hush fell on that town as I broke the law that night. The only sound the distant whistle of the train heading west. No one was in sight but I knew they were looking. Though window and rooftop seemed bare, I knew this area of town, occupied by the uppity, were looking and watching. They were just scared to face me. They were content to let others fight their petty wars and battles. Someone would come. Someone’s hired help always showed up when the big man himself was too yellow.

On Five and I rode north towards the Mayor’s home and his blonde niece. My dreams were occupied with her face. Her eyes haunted my sleep. I meant to see she was mine after this night regardless of the cost. I was young and fit, commanded the respect of my men, and by God I was a Texas man and a rancher. She deserved no less. Lost in thought I almost didn’t see the black horse and rider pull out from the alley on the right. Five’s slight movement pulled me from my revere and into the present. Mentally slapping myself like my sister DT was want to do when I was home, I realized I had to focus on the prize, not be lost in it. Yet.

I watched as the man pulled his horse into the middle of the street. While it appeared he was alone I knew better. This would be the trouble I had known was coming. I slowed my horse and drew up in front of the man on horseback. He was a big man and a fighter from the look of him. Dark of skin and a broken nose, it was possible he was part Indian but I could not be certain in the deepening night light.

“You can’t be going this way,” he drawled. The voice gave him away. I had seen him before. He was the town loverboy. Loved to make a big deal about his many accomplishments but no one was around to validate them. He represented everything I stood against. If I was not mistaken, he has even pursued the Mayor’s niece one time or another.Red hot anger flashed through me which I quckly stifled. She hadn't wanted him and he hadn't deserved her. Waht had I to be angry about. Looking at the man I called out to him.

“Excuse me sir, but I aim to head north. I have business ahead and without meaning to be rude, you are in my way.”

Ah Sakitoso, remember:

Modern combat fighting systems employ a modern, reality-based, mixed martial art for self-defense. This non-traditional approach emphasizes simplicity. No flowery forms are taught, nor are set techniques designed to counter other techniques.

I emphasize constant contact, and you will use of heavy bags, Thai pads and focus mitts in training. At the training conclusion you will be required to subdue a 3,000 pound male buffalo with one punch. You will be required to disarm a Ninja armed with a 30-inch razor sharp katana while blindfolded, thus earning your bushi (warrior) title, and your katana and wakizashi.

• Can you protect your self against determined, armed and multiple assailants?
• Are you ready to fight in ANY environment?
• Can you defend yourself and your loved ones, even if you're not feeling 100%?
• Will you be able to execute the same techniques even when you are older or injured?
• Can you do it all with only a handful of instinctive techniques?

Did you know that in the early 1900's British Foreign Services led a concerted effort to discover the truth about self defense and the martial arts? The purpose was to test the validity of the martial arts claims. In other words: Did this stuff really work or was it just a lot of smoke and mirrors?

Did you know that this extensive field research conducted over 2 decades and three continents revealed a method of fighting that included only high percentage, effective techniques? The methods discovered were the common thread that held all of the martial arts studied together. These techniques and strategies were the common thread.

Of which you will LEARNNNNNNNNNN.....or......you will...

The method of self defense these pioneers developed was taught to military and police personnel. Because of the this reason the system had to be instinctive, easily applied to a wide variety of situations and environments and taught in a relatively short period of time to various people with different backgrounds, physical attributes and abilities.
But there was only one catch…...

IT HAD TO WORK!

Our Story begins in 1907. The Location: Shanghai, China- After a 12 year commitment in the Royal Marines, a 27 year old, Shanghai Municipal Police Officer by the name of William E. Fairbairn enters a dojo in the brothel district in one of the most dangerous places in the world. The sign on the dojo simply read:

Professor Okado
Jujitsu Instructor

Fairbairn was considered a tough man by his peers. Described as a "good man in a dust up", he sought Professor Okada after he suffered a beating at the hand of some merchant sailors. During this period, Shanghai was one of the most dangerous places in the world. Many a policeman was brought in on the floor of a rickshaw, having been knocked out just for fun. Fairbairn quickly realized that effective means of close quarters combat were not only imperative for the success of the Shanghai Municipal Police force, but the survival of its officers.

Fairbairn studied under Professor Okada for 3 years. Under Okada's direction, he found himself in Japan at the Kodokan, the world headquarters for the study of Judo. Fairbairn studied under Professor Jigoro Kano, founder and developer of Judo. Fairbairn learned a wide variety of striking technique as well as grappling, throwing, strangling and joint dislocation. He earned a 2nd kyu brown belt. Eventually he would continue his study and earn a 2nd degree black belt in judo.

Fairbairn's training went beyond Japanese Judo and Jujutsu. Since he was stationed in Shanghai, he had opportunity to study with a variety of emissaries and body guards from a wide range of cultures. This included Chinese boxing and other Western Styles like Wrestling, Prizefighting and Savate. These methods were studied and dissected. Boiled down to their most common and effective methods.

His studies included prison and police reports involving violence. Interviews of the people involved in real-life close-quarters fighting were held with the sole purpose of figure out how they survived- what went right and what went wrong. The result of this research is still deployed world wide to this day. The tactics they developed lead to the modern police, military, S.W.A.T. Team and modern riot control techniques. Special Forces, O.S.S. Operatives, C.I.A. field operators and Elite fighting forces around the world have deployed these techniques successfully as taught by master_sushi.

Forward to 1964, a boy enters the dojo of 2 time Olympic coach and ALL- Japan Collegiate Judo Champion Yoshisada Yonezuka Sensei.
Carl Cestari began his study of martial arts at the age of 7. Here he earned black belts in Kodokan Judo, and Shitoryu Karate. Though his life he dedicated himself to the study of martial arts and self defense. He received black belt ranks and teaching licenses in Japanese Nippon Kempo, Koshinkai Karate, Daitoryu jujutsu and the Charles Nelson Self Defense system just to name a few.

After service in the military, he became a law enforcement officer. Through his contacts, he met former Marine and renowned Self Defense Expert Charlie Nelson. His study with Charlie led him to research people like Fairbairn, Sykes, O'Neill, Applegate and Biddle. All of these men were pioneers in developing modern, effective hand to hand combat. All of these men had to teach operatives and raw recruits effective self defense in a limited amount of time. The people learning these methods had a wide variety of skill level, size, strength, and a limited amount of time to become proficient. These men were teaching people who would be faced with a hand to hand situation nearly every week.

Carl found himself traveling the same path as Fairbairn. He met, interviewed and trained with the people who were taught these methods. Mr. Cestari even had the privilege of spending time with Col. Rex Applegate himself. Carl still continues to train, study and conduct interviews even to this very day.

Carl's knowledge of self defense is the result of decades of training and research of methods and techniques used by those individuals whose lives are routinely at risk. A life long Judo, Karate and Jujutsu practitioner, he sought to close the gap between what he learned in the dojo and what he saw in the street. Carl Cestari's researches lead him to the World War II era hand to hand combat. The work of these pioneers, Fairbairn, Sykes, O'Neill, Applegate and others, sought to strip away the ceremony of the martial arts to its core and uncover its effectiveness.

Carl painstakingly sought out people who were trained in these methods. He always gets as close to the source as possible. Carl never confines himself to one method or doctrine. He is a firm believer in taking control of your own training and developing a system that fits you.

First:

What's wrong with the martial arts and self defense today?

• It's too complicated
• It takes too long to master
• It depends too much on size, strength, speed and skill
• It's based on a set of unrealistic principles

Are you the QUICK, or are you...

Complicated and intricate techniques are good for practice but how long will it take for you to perform complicated hold or joint lock instinctively and convulsively? Who has the time to practice how to grab your attackers hand a specific way or position your self perfectly to execute a throw? Even developing a good punch takes years of practice and conditioning of the fist. I am not saying, don't pursue these endeavors, but when it comes to effective self defense you don't need to. Complicated and intricate techniques don't work when you have to fight for your life. When you're in the heat of battle, you can't worry about your foot position or how much your wrist is bent. You just want to get out of there alive! Your method of protecting your self must be simple and instinctive. That is, if you have to think about it, you're dead. Because there are two types of people in this world THE QUICK and the DEAD.

Master the KISS principle: KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID

The More complicated the task, the less likely you are to succeed performing that task under stress. Simple, Straight forward attacks are easily practiced and easily recalled under hormone induced heart rate increase or FEAR. The techniques found in these videos will allow you to strike with the greatest amount of power and strike ANYWHERE on the target's body without doing significant damage to yourself. For example, you may try to hit your target in the throat, but in the chaos of a fight your target's elbow may get in the way; most conventional techniques will shatter against bone. These techniques will not. You will also discover how to position yourself in such a way that your vital targets are covered; there is no longer a need to block any attack. In fact "blocking" any attack is completely obsolete.

When you are under fear induced stress your body goes prepares itself for battle. This is explained in Lt. Col. David Grossman's book: On Combat. Get it if you don't have it. I will quote this book a lot. Briefly, your body's Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is divided into two parts; the SNS (sympathetic nervous system) and the PNS (parasympathetic nervous system). The SNS are your body's front-line soldiers. They mobilize the body and get it ready for combat. The PNS is your body's cooks, mechanics and clerks. They maintain and prepare your body while you are not in combat mode. They take care of stored energy (food), repair and rest. I will focus primarily on the SNS state.

This is how your body reacts when you are in fear for your life:

• Loss of bowel and bladder control
• Vasoconstriction: The act of blood leaving the extremities to go where the body needs it, in the major organs and the large muscle groups. This helps the body to reduce bleeding from wounds to the extremities.
However, the result is:
• Loss of finite motor skills.
• Action like running and charging are at their highest level.
• Auditory Exclusion (you don't hear everything)
• Loss of near vision (You don't see everything)
• Loss of depth perception
• Loss of peripheral vision (tunnel vision)
• As you experience greater fear induced excitement you loose your complex motor skills (you can barely make a fist) and our cognitive processing deteriorates (you won't be able to speak let alone hold a conversation).

YOU - Will learn how to use your opponent's fear to your advantage, and render your opponent defenseless.

Studying a martial art and preparing for competition are different than learning to fight. Studying a martial art or training for competition takes hours upon hours and years of study, practice and dedication. Learning to fight doesn't. In a fight there is no sparring, maneuvering for position or time to “feel the other guy out”. In a fight there's only urgency, fear and adrenaline. For a competition you have months if not years to prepare. For a fight you have to be prepared for the here and now. Know this: you will be taken by surprise, no matter who you are. You want a set of skills that work with in that frame of mind. Were Mike Tyson, BJ Penn, Royce Gracie great fighters? Yes. Is Chuck Norris still a great fighter? Don't think so? Ask him yourself.

Great fighters are rare.

And you are not one of them...yet.

All factors being equal, the fight usually goes to the bigger, faster and stronger. Most popular methods of martial arts rely too much on these physical factors. You are taught to use your power to create an opportunity or wait for your opponent to make a mistake. When you're not the bigger dog in the fight, you lack the power to force a technique and your energy is getting drained every moment you are waiting for an opportunity. You need to use deception, skill and downright ruthlessness to survive. You want to apply your strongest attack to his weakest target and create openings for escape. How long do you think a 100 pound woman will last in the grasp of a 220 pound man? She won't have time to wait for her opening. She will have to create her opening by being as sneaky and nasty as possible as fast as possible. And if it can work for a smaller person, just imagine what it will do for a larger person.

Why is it that every “Self Defense System” Shows the same old stuff over and over again? Next time you're in Barnes and Noble, go to the martial arts section and grab a few books on self defense. Once you get past the fancy names, acronyms and new covers; take a close look …is there a wrist grabbing epidemic I am not aware of? Seriously, how many times has somebody grabbed your wrist and you didn't just punch them in the face? These books look like a group of people got together to and went through all the old stuff and added the latest trend to it; came up with a snappy name and marketed it. It's the same pattern: attacker does this, I do this. If the attacker comes at me this way, you're going to do that. What if he does this how should you stand. Holy crap, it's enough to make you nuts. How complicated does it have to be- this means you have to be ready for EVERY SITUATION and EVERY ENVIRONMENT. No matter what book you will pick up, it's the same old unrealistic model; the model of Reaction-based Martial Arts.

Why Reaction-based Martial Arts are bad.

Did you know…most martial arts are based on the unrealistic principle of action - reaction? That is, waiting for your assailant to commit to an action and then prescribing a specific reaction. Most systems teach if he does that, then you do this. For example: He punches me, you block and counter. He kicks you, you block and counter. He attacks you with a knife, you do something else. He grabs your wrist, you do another thing. The list is endless.

How can you predict what your assailant will do? Is it a strike, a stab, a punch a kick, a bottle or a brick? The truth is: You Can't! Based on the old principle of "Action-Reaction" you will have to determine what "type" of attack; does he have a weapon? Is there more than one person attacking me? What type of punch, which hand or what type of a kick? Do you need a separate set of techniques for your bedroom and the parking lot? According to this doctrine, you have to identify the type of attack, then select the appropriate response and finally implement that response; All in a fraction of a second! Seriously, how can you expect to determine how you're being attacked and then apply the correct response within a blink of an eye? To make matters worse, you're still waiting to be ATTACKED!! And believe me; once your enemy has the jump on you, you have to play catch up to get ahead of him. Believe me, this is the last place you ever want to be.

Just remember:

ACTION IS ALWAYS FASTER THAN REACTION

Waiting for your enemy to attack you does only ONE thing: It places You One Step BEHIND Your Enemy! And When Your Life is On the line, One Step is the difference between going home and going to the morgue.

Remember Psychology 101?

Hick's Law: When stressed and you are given the choice of two options, your degree of success goes down to 58%. And that's just two choices- what if you had 3? I have even heard of some guys trying to narrow it down to the "30 most common attacks" - even the notion of this is ludicrous. But even at 30, your success rate goes deep in to the toilet and besides, you are still relying on Your Enemy to Determine Your Response. This still places you in the action-reaction mode. This still places you one step BEHIND your enemy and it puts your assailant in control of the situation.

If you are currently training, ask yourself some questions Don't worry, you won't be graded:
• Do you use protective gear?
• Do you practice blocking your opponents attack?
• Is your training confined by rules and time limits?
• Are you training Situation-Specific Scenarios? Example: "If he does this, then you do that."
• Do you ask Your self the "What if he does this..." question?
• Do You Spend time striking the Air?
• Do you consider every type Environment? Example: Street, Snow, Parking lot, Sand, Mud, Your Kitchen, etc.
• Do you wait for your training partner to attack Before You Counter attack?
• Is your Health Condition a major factor in your ability to defend yourself? Can you train even if you're injured?
• Do Your Methods Require a Great deal of Strength, speed, endurance or Practice?
• Do you have Separate Techniques for Empty hand attacks, weapons attacks and multiple assailant attacks?

1. Always Assume that Your Assailant is Dangerous and has Intent on Injuring or Killing You.
2. Consider Any and Every Environment.
3. You Must be able to Protect Yourself, Even if you are not feeling 100%.
4. You Must Assume that there is More than One Assailant.
5. Your Assailant is a lot Larger and Stronger than You.
6. Your Assailant is Tougher than You.
7. Your Attacker is Armed.
8. You Must be able to Perform Under the Extreme Stress of Life or Death

Believe me...I will test you in each area...and you will succeed...or...

Know this: When you are being attacked it is because your assailant knows something that you don't. Your assailant feels that he has an edge; whether they are trying to take your money, you (if you are a woman), or hijack your airplane...HE picks the time and place. HE selects the best conditions for his success. Your Assailant thinks HE has a distinct Advantage. Consider yourself forewarned and Forewarned is forearmed. Don't take it personally; you are in the wrong place at the wrong Time.

Your Primary Method of Self Defense Should Save Your Life Even If:
• You Are Alone
• You Are Sick, Tired Or Injured
• You are old.
• You are smaller.
• You are weaker.
• You are A Woman or A Man
• You are Out Numbered
• You are in the worst of all environments
• The Assailant is Armed
• The Assailant is Bigger, Stronger and Tougher Than You
• You are under the intense stress of life or death combat.

Simply put: You will learn a self defense method that allows you to work in any environment versus any single or multiple assailants and that works within the limits of the physiological and physiological stress of mortal combat.

Finally, one question:

Q: Can I use these methods in sparring or competition?
A: No. Most of these methods are illegal in competition and for good reason. Sports and competition are great for developing spirit and character. These methods are far too lethal. You wouldn't want someone dying in the ring because you hacked the back of their neck with an axe hand.

This ends todays lesson.
