JIDO is designed as a supplemental training program for current Martial Arts Students, School owners and Gyms. It's easy to get started and can add an important facet to your training regiment. JIDO is NOT Sport Training! To get started you need only contact us for our JIDO video series which takes you step-by-step through a series of training elements such as:
HISTORY, MINDSET & TRAINING PHILOSOPHY:
We look at were JIDO evolved from, physical and mental conditioning and what runs through our mind every day as we train. To see the future we look to the past.
WARM-UPS (FOR TRAINING) AND FUNDEMANTALS:
We look at daily regiments that can be incorporated in to class or school workouts to reinforce reaction and muscle memory while improving general health.
We look at general health and nutrition practices that can improve your chances of survival.
Here we introduce you to The MENTAL, The PHYSICAL, The LAW, or what we call - The Essential Three (E3) areas of learning to enhance decision making with regard to self-defense training.
Additional topics covered include: de-escalation training, Scenario training, training to the HCD (highest common denominator) vs. LCD (lowest...), Known Quantity Training Principals (known reaction times and much more), Awareness Training (un-aware, aware, alert and alarm), BAR (body alarm reaction and physiology), Self-Defense vs. Life-Defense training, Force Continuum, Quantum of Force, Perfect Self-Defense vs. Imperfect Self-Defense.
The training modules are designed to ensure that the martial artist has trained to modify any sport or competition techniques so that they can be used in real-life self defense. This is great training for Tae Kwon Do schools and students where too often the sole method of training is to prepare for competition. The same can be said for many martial arts including any competition focused arts.
Her we employ the martial artists trained techniques to address (3) realities we call:
Home Game: This is typical for law enforcement who must stay and engage with the optimal outcome being non-lethal and with the concerns of excessive force. Law Enforcement scenarios can be very complex and often times risky for the officer.
Away Game: This is more typical for the private citizen who has the option in many cases of leaving or not participating in conflict. Additionally they may leave once the threat has been addressed. Here we train people to remember they can leave in many cases or extract themselves as soon as possible etc.
End Game: This may be more prevelent in military operations or battle field scenarios. However, this is also seen in domestic, civilian and lae enforcement encounters resulting in death of serious injury. Understanding what type of conflict is taking place is crucial to retain life, limb and liberty!
We also cover injury vs. pain and how this matters!
PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER, DRILLS, CONTINUOUS COMBAT:
Here we put it together. We combine all and create scenarios in which students can practice continuous combat techniques against various and often multiple attackers. We strip weapons and turn them on our attackers if necessary. We work with different partners of all conceivable body types and genders and we further develop the will-to-win and continuous combat mindset. Student who poses strong knowledge of all training may then focus on continuous improvement and a deeper understanding of the options to be employed to achieve a successful outcome.
