Gracie Survival Tactics
THE GST PROGRAM IS A LIVING CURRICULUM THAT IS CONSTANTLY EVOLVING AND BASED ON THREE RULES
Anytime you are within document transfer range, you are also within ambush range. In the GST course we teach simple, high-percentage sudden assault defense strategies so that you can neutralize the threat and achieve a position of advantage in the least amount of time possible.
RULE 2: The officer should never grapple with the bad guy, by choice.
If you are ambushed by the bad guy and taken to the ground against your will, the primary concern is the immediate access the bad guy has to your weapons. In the GST course, we teach a series of leverage-based weapon retention strategies, as well as core distance recovery strategies so that you can disengage from the fight and utilize the appropriate force options.
RULE 3: In a street fight, there is no “tap out.”
