Reality-based Martial Arts
A number of martial artists now promote a broadly-based and eclectic approach to self-defence, often collectively called reality-based training. The objectives of these people is typically very different from those sport-fighters, and the curriculum typically encompasses much more than technique. It includes risk management, negotiation, legal implications of self-defence, strategies for use and avoidance of weapons, and many other practical topics. Technically, the techniques are closest to a small sub-set of what is being used in Mixed-Martial arts, Eskrima, Combat Judo, and other disciplines. The training constraints are different, the real-world constraints are different, and the art is different. Click
