Special Skills Courses
The Summit Point Training Facility's Combatives (self-Offense) course is a one-day unarmed combat training program that utilizes the "Gutter Fighting" method. This approach, which was developed by Rex Applegate and William Fairbairn and taught to WWII Special Operations Forces and OSS operatives, emphasizes gross motor strikes that can be easily performed under stress. The gutter fighting technique has been used by modern U.S. Special Operations Forces and is designed to provide the skills and knowledge necessary to defeat and escape from criminal restraints. The course teaches quick and effective combative strikes and counters to physical control and weapon disarms, with the goal of causing maximum damage to an assailant.
