Fight or Flight Reaction

In a training enviroment, nearly everthing works, the most difficult technique or a complex combination. But in training, you know your training partners,  you will use saftey equipment, there are no "real" attacks - so there is no "real" threat for your health or your live. But on the street it´s different story. There, you can´t value the situation. You don´t know your opponent, and there is a real danger, a real threat. In such a situation, the body will automatically goes into the "Fight or Flight" Reaction. This is a natural reaction from your brain, to prepare the body for either a fight, or a flight. In fact, this is are very useful mechanism, but there is also a big disadvantage: Because your brain is completely engaged in preparing your body for the worst case, it blanks out many informations, including most of the techniques you have trained before. As a result many of the technique which works perfectly in training, won´t work under real pressure. Action vs. Reaction Action is faster than reaction. Why? Action starts first, and reaction has a time lag - the response time. The more possibilities you have, the more extended is the response time. Action is the attacker - reaction is the defender. So the attacker has a big advantage on his side. A self defense system which has a focus on more defensive moves, will get very soon to the limit in a real fight. A much higher chance of success has an offensive system which uses the "attack the attacker" idea.  

Core Fight Plan

The solution: A Core Fight Plan A Core Fight Plan is a Self Protection strategy, which you could compare with a navigation system. A navigation system will calculate a fix route from point A to point B. If there is some road work or a jam on the way, it will calculate automatically a rerouting, and leads you back on the original route. The same way a Core Fight Plan works in the chaos of a fight. The Core Fight Plan in our CXT training has 3 main points: 1. Stop the attacker by intercept his attack 2. Attack the attacker and keep him under continous pressure 3. Terminate the fight by using primary and secondary follow ups
