Core JKD Multiple Attacker Self Defense Video Collection
Over 3 hours of intense training for defense against multiple attackers.

"Ming, if I didn't have your training, I would've been seriously injured or dead."
This was from a student of mine who had been in a fight outside of a bar late one night as he was leaving to go home.
3 men attacked him.
He managed to strike and take down 2 of his attackers, holding them on top of one another and against the bar wall as he defended kicks to his head from the 3rd attacker.
His Core JKD training protected him, kept him conscious. After timing the kick he was able to catch the foot and pull the 3rd attacker off his feet.
My student got away with the attackers bloodied and bruised and staggering.
The next day he was back in the studio training and telling me what happened. He had swelling and bruising on his forehead from the kicks, and cut knuckles and swelling on his hands.
But he was alive. He was safe.

He told me that during the fight he had sense enough to keep an eye out for weapons. Something we train under stress.
He was lucky he didn't have to deal with that. Weapons in a 3-attacker scenario is a difficult challenge. If you don't have an equalizer, you'd better know the basics and methods for how to defend and extract yourself from the situation.
We train that very well.
A lot of the time as instructors or students, we have to ask ourselves, "Is my system teaching everything possible to keep us safe in situations like these?"
Many times the answer is no.
Realistic training against hard resisting attackers is our bread and butter. It's what we do. It's where Core JKD's "core" techniques are developed.
I have developed proven techniques and strategies for dealing with resisting attackers who have an intent to harm or kill.
This is not theory.
This is not guesswork handed down from other people who took it from someone else's theories.
It is based on real-world fighting strategies and defense training unique to the Core JKD Method.
These methods and techniques can be adapted to any self defense system. They are immediately effective for people who have never trained before and for veterans in many specialized fields.
In the videos listed below , you will see some of the research and physical demonstrations Ming went through to understand deeply the various aspects of having to handle more than one attacker at a time.
You will be given the mental and physical techniques, strategies and drills to enhance your self defense functionality against multiple attackers with and without weapons.
Everything listed below is included on the videos.
