Most of what is being taught today in the typical martial arts
school, self defense seminar and self defense video is...

Useless in a real street attack!

Have you been searching for a simple, yet effective
method of self-defense that really works?

Have you figured out yet that most martial arts schools,
videos and seminars teach a lot of stuff that doesn't
really work on the street?

Are you ready, right now, to learn how you can defend
yourself in virtually any situation, quickly and easily?

Dear Friend,

After over 40 years of studying and teaching martial arts I can tell you beyond any doubt that most of what is being taught today in martial arts schools, seminars and videos... just won't work in a real street attack!

It's true. And it's a darn shame. So many unsuspecting, poorly trained and totally clueless folks are walking around with a false security. They believe the moves and techniques they were taught in their local martial arts school or a seminar they attended, will really work in an honest to goodness, no holds barred, street attack.

So, what's wrong with most traditional training?

For the first 20 years or so of my own personal training, I taught much the same way everyone else did. Sure it worked fine in the studio, but I often wondered how it would work on the street. I had heard and read about experienced black belts being utterly trounced by ordinary street thugs. What about what I was teaching? Would it really work if called upon, to protect my students and their loved ones?

About that time a friend of mine invited me to train with his master instructor. He claimed that his instructor taught an awesome and realistic system of street self-defense. I was curios to see what this guy was all about, so I accepted. It didnít take long to realize that he was right.

After the very first session he had proved to me, without a doubt, that what I had been teaching my students most likely wouldn't work under the duress of real attack. This is what I learned:

  • The natural effect of real aggression causes what is called an "adrenaline dump". This fear induced high volume shot of adrenaline is normal and natural and cannot be stopped, even by experienced black belts.
  • The effects of this "adrenaline dump" can be devastating, especially if you are not prepared for it.
  • The main problem is that many of the techniques that are taught in traditional training are too tricky or too complicated for the average person to properly execute. This is especially true under the duress of an all out street attack. Techniques that are highly complicated tend not to be executed properly, if at all, when the pressure is on and adrenaline levels are high.
  • Many of the systems use joint locks and pressure points that require years of training to properly execute. Sometimes even when they are applied properly to someone who has an unusual amount of joint flexibility or a high resistance to pain, they donít work.
  • Many of the arts teach kicking techniques that are great for the studio or for sport competition, but are all but useless on the street. Unfortunately many of the practitioners of these arts are led to believe that they can really use these kicks effectively in a combat situation. They end up with a false security believing they can defend themselves with such techniques. In reality, if they ever have to really fight, they usually get themselves into trouble very quickly.
  • Many techniques require years of training or are just impossible to learn unless you are under the direct training of the master instructor. You cannot learn these properly from a video, book or seminar. They take years to perfect, even under the supervision of an expert instructor.
  • Allot of what is taught is just fluff! It doesn't stand a chance to work in a real street attack!
The Solution!

The solution was developing a system that contained the following benefits:

  1. It had to address the inevitable adrenaline dump which is the natural effect of fear induced aggression.
  2. It had to be simple enough to teach students in days or weeks instead of years!
  3. It had to be effective regardless of the body type of the attacker.
  4. It had to be quick, effective and decisive!
  5. It had to address real street "situations" instead of the typical studio environment.
  6. It had to contain a minimum amount of techniques. This was necessary as research has shown that as few as a handful of techniques can be recalled when fully "adrenalized".
  7. It had to be designed to defeat a much larger and stronger attacker!
  8. It had to be easy to learn.
  9. Additionally it had to be direct, powerful and yet simple and straight forward enough to be taught through video based training or through a step by step manual with pictures and explanations.

So following my master's training, guidance and advice I went to work to develop such a system. Believe me, it wasn't easy, even for an 'expert' with over 20 years of training at the time.

During the next several years I searched everywhere and every way to simplify, and improve every aspect of our self-defense system. This search included going to seminars, visiting other schools, bringing in guest instructors and reviewing close to 100 self defense videos.

I was sifting through masses of information to pick up a gem here and there. Slowly I made changes to what we taught and how we taught it. Constantly modifying, perfecting and refining our program to what it is today.

We discovered that there were about 30 common street attacks that we had to deal with. Sure, there were others, but they were really just variations of the basic thirty.

We took each one of these possible attacks and developed a system that took into consideration the 'adrenal dump' which causes us to freeze up and lose fine motor coordination.

We eliminated any response that did not fit into this reality. We added more simple, direct and extremely effective strikes, moves and techniques that could be learned simply and easily. And, did not require years of training.

Finally we condensed this entire process into a simple, organized system of instruction. To help our students learn the system we decided to carefully put the entire process on video as well as a Visual Training Guide & Manual. It's done in a step by step manner so that even a total beginner can learn it.

Listen to what just a few of my students have to say...

"I've trained with other instructors, even in the military, but Shihan Pace's system of self defense is the most effective and practical by far."

S. Christensen, Hamburg, NJ
