F.I.G.H.T., Fierce Israeli Guerilla Hand-to-hand Tactics, is the core of Haganah training.
In this class you will build your foundation for self defense. The first half of the class covers your "priniples and combatives".
This develops your muscle memory for deploying palm strikes, eye gouges, throat jams, kicks, knees, and elbows. You will use leverage, angles, and tactical strategies to overcome bigger and stronger opponents.
We will teach you how to bring it all together using engagement drills, pad drills, and more.
The second part of class covers 18 empty-hand street defenses against punches, kicks, chokes, lapel grabs, bear hugs, headlocks, tackles and more.
You will also learn 10 defenses against knife attacks and 10 gun disarms all from various angles, and all covered in one 4 month rotation.
The rotation is often supercharged with a combination of techniques from our Combat Wrestling, BJJ Combatives and Aikido programs to give you even more skills. The class is continually enhanced and upgraded for more complicated scenarios such as multiple attackers, surprise attacks and stress inoculation drills.
Generally, within approximately 3 rotations, (one year) of training, you will have developed a very good understanding of how to handle serious assaults.
However, we suggest you continue learning additional skills in our other classes as well as our dynamic Progressive Firearms Training.
