There are so many "self defense" systems and techniques. So many masters. So many people claiming to have all the answers to all the violent problems. So how can you know what really works, and what is nonsense? In ICCS we have a solution. We call it the "bull shit meter". Basically, every time we see a new technique, we test its principle under pressure. I say principle, because the exact technique hardly ever works in a fight. However, the idea behind it should make sense. How dose the "bull shit" meter test work? simple, we test the technique under pressure. Pressure training must have to elements to it; you must be physically exhausted, and your training partner must resist you 100%. He must try to kick your ass, not make you look good and come out a winner. Anything short of that is nothing but acting. Train smart, Stay Safe, Sharir R, ICCS head Instructor.
