There are many and varied martial arts styles out there today, some traditional, some are technique driven, some aimed at the sporting arena whilst others take a more conceptual approach.
Rapid Assault Tactics was developed by Si-Gung Paul Vunak for use by US Government Special Forces SEAL Team Six. Since its inception in the mid eighties it has been used by many Government and Law Enforcement Agencies.
Chief Instructor and Founder of ITG, Clive Whitworth, is a Certified Rapid Assault Tactics Instructor and Full Instructor in Jeet Kune Do and Filipino Martial Arts by RAT System Founder Si-Gung Paul Vunak and has been a student of the martial arts for over 45 years, studying and training in Jeet Kune Do for more than 35 of those.
You may have seen a more theatrical version of Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do and Filipino Kali being used to great effect in movies such as The Book of Eli and the Jason Bourne series.
Off screen Bruce Lee had not only a philosophical viewpoint but a conceptual one too, the concept of intercepting an opponent on the first motion being the very name of his art Jeet Kune Do or Intercepting Fist Way! Interception is one of many concepts or ideals employed in JKD in conjunction with its philosophy and attributes.
The Filipino art of Kali has its own concepts, some shared with JKD others peculiar to that art.
Looking for similarities in the way others approach martial art would help in discovering the "essence" of those particular branches of martial art.
Intercepting would take away the necessity of waiting to see which technique was to be used in a confrontational attack and then having to pick out the correct (sometimes a choice of many) response.
* Rapid Assault Tactics work with concepts from both JKD and Filipino Kali.
* You will work in all areas of combat with and without weapons and against multiple opponents.
* You will be welcomed as a beginner, intermediate or experienced martial artist.
* You can train to be an Instructor or just for your own personal protection.
You can learn in a Group Class, Privately or on one of our courses or seminars.
