How We Train

Fighting Method University is for adults seeking to learn the most brutally effective self-defense and aggressor control techniques. This is not a sport, rather it is training for real world confrontation.

As such, the following is intended to be a brief description of our training philosophy:

How You Train IS How You Will Fight

The instructors at Fighting Method University are professionals. We know that, under pressure, human beings will resort to fighting the way that they trained, not in some fanciful movie style. Therefore, Fighting Method University has developed a curriculum that takes into account fatigue, wounds and real world stress to make sure your training is as practical and effective as possible in the real world.

New techniques are practiced in the beginning slowly and are broken down into various stages for ease of learning and safety. This stage is referred to as the static phase. Once you are comfortable with the technique, speed and moderate resistance is introduced until the techique is fluid. After many repetitions, competence will develop to the point that you will respond without conscious thought at full speed. At this stage, you will be tested for your next level. A dynamic environment is full speed, with full contact. Dynamic training is carried out in scenario training, during sparring and grappling sessions.

Our training also includes drills, sport specific stretches, cardio and strength training. To maximize on fight training time, participants are expected to continue training their cardio and strength training regimes on their own time. That being said, many students stay fit by simply relying on the classes and, most importantly, attending regularly.


The participant will demonstrate the curriculum from previous levels and the next level they are working to attain. Each level has a knowledge base that must be fully understood before testing. Participants will be made aware when they are eligible to advance. An instructor will conduct an informal preliminary assessment to identify if any shortcomings exist prior to testing. If none exist, a formal test time will decided upon. The conduct of a formal test will be explained by one of the instructors.
