No styles, no systems, no rituals, no lineages, no masters, no labels, no belts, no katas, no uniforms, no dogmas;

Only the process of self actualization & personal expression of truth through functional combative movement and fitness.

On a purely physical level, we share how to individually and collectively use all of our natural tools as well as extended ones, offensively and defensively in a strategic and tactical manner and in all ranges of combat.

We're put through functional physical fitness training where we learn to push ourselves through our own perceived limitations. We also have much to offer on nutrition, health and optimum performance.

On a more cerebral level we learn about the psychology of violence, fear, stress & confrontation management skills, deescalation strategies and holistic survival tactics.

As the mind navigates the body; by challenging personal self defense dogmas and individual & core belief systems, personal growth and evolution occurs.

On a human level, we learn about the ripple effect and the moral, legal, and ethical consequences of our chosen actions while self examining our darkest emotions. We are encouraged to question everything, to learn to think for ourselves, to be more accountable and research everything we learn and to be open and responsive to life without judgment.

On a personal level, the training can make you face and slay your own demons.

Everything shared here is highly encouraged to be individually researched, to “absorb what is useful, add what is specifically of your own and disregard the rest.”

In the book Peter gives an account of his life past, how he shed his old skin and how he continues to grow into, in his words "a better man".

"Everyone should read this, particularly toward the end. Richard Dimitri is something of a mentor and kindred soul to the Urban Combat Systems team and I just came across this article. He's also a big-time humanist and a crusader for what is fundamentally right and just. Have a look:" ~ Adam 'Urban Combat' Nero

A huge thank you to Peter Skillen for taking the time to give me the time and space.  Another thank you to Adam "Urban Combat" Nero, brother, those are mighty kind words and very appreciated, motivational and inspirational to say the least, thank you.
