According to a report published by the U.S Department of Justice, you have an 83% chance of being the victim of violent crime at some point in your life. What measures have you taken to beat the odds? Are you prepared to handle the situation when violence comes knocking at your door? How will you react? Will you be able to protect yourself and your family? What will you do when faced with a home invasion? How will you handle a terrorist attack? What will you do in a situation with multiple attackers? How will you address the various weapons that you might face? Can you handle an attack from a wild dog? What will you do in an execution type assault? The art of learning how to defend yourself is developed through skills acquired in defensive tactics training. It’s not as simple as "how to defend against a choke". There are many factors to consider during your preparation. Not only must we consider mindset and avoidance, but we have to look at the actual types of technique application. There are different levels. The levels are determined by distance of the offender, speed of the attack, and circumstances. None of which you have control over. You can only control how you respond to these situations. The levels or types of situations are: Confrontation with a verbal exchange Confrontation with no verbal exchange Surprise attack when you are caught off guard Hostage situations Intercepting an attack with a preemptive strike All of these will be addressed in the Fit to Fight Certification seminar. Anyone may participate in the Fit to Fight workshops, however the student must meet certain requirements to become Fit to Fight Certified. Those who do not meet the requirements will receive a Certificate of Completion. The Fit to Fight Strength and Survival System combines bodyweight and defensive tactics expertise from Phil Ross and Max Shank. Together they've created a complete system that is practical, concise and unmatched. Not everyone has the time, inclination or circumstances to join a full-blown martial arts school and train for hours and hours a week to advance in a belt level. Fit to Fight is designed to be part of a martial arts program or as a Stand Alone System. Great strength and skill can be developed with very little or no equipment. The movements and techniques are designed for partner/small group and solitary practice. If it’s inconvenient at times to train with others, many of the techniques—pad work and the strength and conditioning elements—may be practiced alone. There are certain aspects of the training that require a partner. When training for actual combat, there is no substitute for actual human to human contact. Even though bag and pad work are strongly recommended, the variables of another human body cannot be replicated with an apparatus or in solo training.

The proper presentation of the materials and the emotion involved could save the lives of their students.

Register now for the FTF Certification Seminar on October 4-5, 2014 About Phil Ross: The system was developed from a unique blend of both martial arts training and real life experience. The Martial Arts of Burmese Bando, Combat Jiu Jitsu, Korean Taekwondo, Filipino Arnis, Jun Fan, Muay Thai, Western Boxing and Wrestling, Submission Fighting and Shotokan Karate. In addition to the formal Martial Arts, I was an executive protection agent for over 10 years as well as a bouncer in Washington DC, New York City and various establishments in New Jersey for more than 20 years. My real life experience has contributed significantly to the realistic application of techniques and tried and true theories in this system. I successfully competed on the national level in wrestling, karate, taekwondo, submission fighting, free fighting and continuous point fighting from 1979 through 2010. Including wrestling, I was victorious in approximately 500 physical contests in the aforementioned disciplines. These numbers do not include the physical confrontations incurred during my employment as a bouncer or bodyguard. In order to teach a defensive tactics program effectively, significant experience in either the street, the ring or on the mat is required. I have all three. The street, or "real life" experience can be gained from the military, incarceration, police, bouncer, or bodyguard jobs. It can also be gained from situations where your life or potential bodily harm is possible and where there are no rules and anything can happen. The ring would include any of the full contact sports that involve striking—including but not limited to Boxing, Kickboxing. Muay Thai, Full Contact (or Knock Down) Karate, Mixed Martial Arts (or Cage Fighting) or any other type of competition where a knockout is permitted. The last area is the mat including Wrestling, Judo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Pankration, Catch Wrestling and of course Mixed Martial Arts. Also included on this list is any full contact grappling competition where the controlling, submitting or manipulating of another individual is required for victory. If you are a black belt in a Kata based system or practice self defense maneuvers learned from a DVD or YouTube video, you are not qualified to develop, advise or otherwise present a defensive tactics system. You must have trained, competed or have faced with situations where bodily harm was a possibility. You should also have a measure of experience being hit, taken down or submitted. I’m not saying that you have to be a UFC Champion or Navy SEAL to be able to teach, but you need some real world experience.
