What is combat aikido?

COMBAT AIKIDO is an eclectic self defense system developed by SENSEI JACK MOON. It was derived from a variety of martial arts. COMBAT AIKIDO's philosophy emphasizes threat neutralization, simultaneous defensive & offensive maneuvers and endurance. Techniques generally focus on training students in conditions approximating scenarios. COMBAT AIKIDO maneuvers aim to neutralize an attack and facilitate rapid and safe escape. COMBAT AIKIDO utilizes over 50 training drills to increase endurance, to increase awareness, to increase ability to perform under stress and to increase fighting spirit.

SENSEI MOON incorporated principles and techniques from Aikido, Karate, Judo, Jujitsu, Boxing, Ground Fighting, Krav Maga and other lesser known martial arts into this modern self defense system. The system consists of throws, joint locks, pressure points, grappling, strikes, blocks, kicks, defenses against guns, knives, sticks, car jacking and third party defenses. The system is based around 50 classical Aikido techniques with hundreds of applications. The COMBAT AIKIDO ASSOCIATION headquarters is located in Rutledge, Georgia.

COMBAT AIKIDO is considered to be a ramped version of Aikido with lots of strikes and kicks. In traditional Aikido you redirect or throw the attacker. This is a good way to start, but it allows the attacker to get back up and try you again. Only this time his anger level has increased drastically. In COMBAT AIKIDO, you not only throw the attacker you immediately go into a finishing technique. This will make the attacker a little more reluctant or unable to try you again.

COMBAT AIKIDO is known for its main principles:

1. Do as much damage in as little time as possible.

2. Change from defending to attacking as quickly as possible.

3. Use items around you as weapons.

4. Be aware of everything that is happening around you.
