An up-close military hand-to-hand fighting system, also known as combatives. It is also a term used for fighting an enemy at close range while armed. CQC teaches a person to use any part of their body as a weapon in any environment and how to use any modern day weapon as a tool of self defense.
Jim McCann holds the rank of Full Instructor in Hock's SFC CQC Group course which is the most comprehensive, complete, scientific, hand, stick, knife and gun, close quarters course in the world, bar none. We teach all of the SFC Group material under their direct tutelage and authority.
All training is expressed in a "Modular Concept." A module includes learning the basics of execution of a particular tactic, troubleshooting common counters to the tactic, skill and flow drill development of the tactic, counters, and then using the tactic in standing, kneeling and ground positions fighting with and/or against unarmed, stick, knife and gun weaponry.
Submission Wrestling (also called Submission Fighting, and technically referred to as Submission Grappling) is a sports modality and a general term that is used to describe the aspect of martial arts and combat sports that focus on clinch and ground fighting with the aim of obtaining a submission using submission holds. Submission wrestling as a separate sport integrates many grappling arts into a single system, and can include techniques from a wide range of arts. Students develop a variety of skills for, grappling, groundwork, submission holds, joint locks, and takedowns, as well as conditioning for speed, strength, endurance, and flexibility.
ESP uses Western Wrestling disciplines to educate the "shoot" or takedown. We utilize the lessons of Greco-Roman wrestling with their incessant upper body attack and the head-to-toe shots of the freestyle wrestler to build a "shooter" whose takedown variations number into the hundreds and do not rely on the gi, Sambo jacket, or any other non-body handle. ESP bases its ground game in the breakdowns, rides, pinning combinations, escapes, stand-ups, and par terre disciplines of freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling.
