The International Combat Systema Association
2016 ICSA SUMMER CAMP
June 2-5, 2016
*Limited to 20 Participants! Come and experience the ICSA's world famous Summer Camp in beautiful Montreal. You will experience unmatched instruction, clarity and innovation, challenge your limits and grow your existing skill set while enjoying one of the most beautiful cities in the world in the peak of festival season. No previous experience is necessary.
Day 1-CQB H2H:
The camp will begin with a treatment of empty handed work in
close quarters. Emphasis will be placed on adhesion and
controlling contact, close quarter striking, joint destruction,
escaping holds and continuous movement.
Day 2-Natural Movement
On day 2, transportation will be provided from the Hotel Europa
(one block from the school) to Mount Royal. Training will begin
with 3 foot sticks, emulating traditional Russian stick and sword
work, exploring mobility and breath work. From there, students
will move into stick fighting, as a method of hyper-accelerating
their reflexes and their understanding of entering, trapping, and
striking. Next, students will move into empty-handed movement
and head into the forest to explore movement through the trees,
rolling on uneven terrain, working in natural settings, and using
natural items as improvised weapons.
Day 3-Total Restraint
In an increasingly litigious world, a single level of force for every
encounter is no longer a wise defensive plan. Day 3 will focus on
responsible power and maintaining scalable force options. We
will cover the essentials of physical intervention, including a vital
flow set of takedowns, restraint locks and chokes, including how
to commandeer civilian back-up, how to maximize your legal
defense, the use of short work for controlling the appearance of aggression, the audience effect, when to retreat and much more.
Day 4-Multiple Attackers
The camp will conclude with a pragmatic real world treatment of multiple attackers. We will begin with detection, proxemics and body language, positioning, gesture, verbal de-escalation and evasion in group encounters. We will move next into pre-emptive attacks, cracking and controling the mob, body shielding and steering, intensifying responses and tactical retreats.
Bonus Training: Additional evening sessions will be available at no additional costs for students who wish to be evaluated for Combat Systema Ranking.
