Principle Based Combatives
22 - 23 April 2023
19 Baron Park Road Suite 101
Fredericksburg, VA 22405

 

There are a LOT of combatives providers that repeatedly state their methodology is "principle based" yet can't even state their principles. We have delivered a principle based methodology for decades with published principles that students learn to apply continuously in any fight. We have been at the forefront of a principle based approach for literally decades. When things go sideways, if you're mentally trying to identify the "correct" technique for a specific attack while adrenalized you're going to fail. This exciting course brings the student through stand up situations, ground situations as well as counter-weapons in a very fast paced curriculum that cements understanding in a unique and fun way. Always a crowd pleaser, don't miss your chance to learn from the authority in combatives, Kelly McCann.

Basic Combatives
6 -7 May 2023
19 Baron Park Road Suite 101
Fredericksburg, VA 22405

 

ALL "Combatives" should be basic, easy to recall under duress and executable regardless of size, strength, agility, etc. Still, teaching the appropriate fundamentals in a way conducive to achieving your highest level of personal performance is what we excel at. If you're looking for the "right time" or "right course" to start your studies in being able to protect yourself, this course is the "right" one. We will lead you through our principles, techniques we prefer, put you in situations that include ground and stand up and generally develop your peak performance in this fast paced two day combatives primer. Always a crowd pleaser for both inexperienced and experienced practitioners, our Basic Combatives course will leave you more skilled and ready for more.

Ground Fighting
10 - 11 June 2023
19 Baron Park Road Suite 101
Fredericksburg, VA 22405

 

Our ground programs are wildly popular and successful because we include hard won lessons from our winning MMA experience, wrestling pedigrees, catch wrestling knowledge and BJJ techniques. Sure, on the street multiple attackers, natural hazards (curbs, cars, etc.) and weapons differentiate fighting off the ground from sport pursuits HOWEVER, without a solid, credible background in MMA and combat sports you're almost guaranteed to get whooped by anyone with experience. Don't be "that" guy who thinks tiny dinosaur arm hammerfists are the answer. This course is credible, accessible and goes a long way to making you be able to handle ground fights and be able to get back to your feet under real pressure. 

Odd Guns and Alternative Carry
(14)15 - 16 July 2023
19 Baron Park Road Suite 101
Fredericksburg, VA 22405

 

How many people carry .38 snubbies, .380's or ultra compact 9mm's but never train with them? How to carry them. How to maximize the draw. Reloading. Most people haven't gotten their head around the huge difference between a standard draw (while all jocked up with a full size frame and legit holster) and pulling a pocket pistol out, shooting through a jacket pocket or dealing with the diminutive nature of a smaller weapon. In fact, most ranges won't even allow you to work on alternative methods of carry. If you're going to carry pocket guns then you owe it to yourself to find out what kind of draw times your dealing with, what a shorter sight radius means in terms of speed and accuracy and how less than optimal sights impacts your abilities. If you're interested in being proficient with what you carry, this is the course you need. 

Friday night class at Renegade Combat Sports starts at 6:30 PM. 

You will need:    500 rounds

                          eye and ear protection

                          2 extra magazines / speed loaders

                          Pocket holster (if you use one)

                          Disposable outerwear with pockets

Fighting Out of Disadvantage
19 - 20 August 2023
19 Baron Park Road Suite 101
Fredericksburg, VA 22405

 

The first time we've offered this course which includes legacy Confined Space Combatives content as well as other challenging situations. What happens when you're mounted and suffering under intense ground and pound? Backmount? When there's a huge size differential? Attacked while seated by a standing attacker? Attacker's choose to act when conditions are most advantageous to them and least advantageous to you. Doesn't it make sense to work these problems during training so they are familiar and manageable? We think it does and we think you'll love the perspective you gain from attending this course. 

You will need:    MMA gloves

                          Mouthguard

                          Diamond MMA cup or boxing groin protection

                          Ballistic goggles

                          Muay Thai Shinguards

Instructor Program Summit
6 - 9 September 2023
19 Baron Park Road Suite 101
Fredericksburg, VA 22405

 

It's been several years since we started delivering Instructor Certification Programs, it's time to reign it in and use this time together with EVERYONE enrolled in our program to talk about updates to the curriculum, clarify everyone's status, demonstrate ongoing proficiency or deficiency in instructional technique and depth of knowledge, teach new additions to the curriculum and commune together. Too many people don't know others in the program and we want to change that. We'll be posting some pre-requisites so everyone will be prepared. And yes, there's a PFT, there will be fighting and of course drinking and ball busting! We're so stoked to have everyone in the house for this. If you're in our instructor program, mark the dates on your calendar and make sure to attend this event!

You will need:   You're in the program, you should know what to bring...

Stick & Knife ICP
8 - 11 October 2023
19 Baron Park Road Suite 101
Fredericksburg, VA 22405

 

Here we go again! The second Stick and Knife Instructor Certification Program. Last year's pilot program was a success! During this program all manner of sticks are addressed from pocket sticks through walking sticks. We identify the commonalities between stick systems worldwide and streamline a hard hitting curriculum that ensures you're getting the most out of anything you carry or pick up. Live stick combat occurs during this program.

Our knife curriculum is straightforward and "to the point." We approach use of the knife defensively and discuss the legal issues with many knife programs currently being taught. If you're going to be a responsible instructor you have to teach techniques that are BOTH effective and legal. There's no room for bullshit when you are promoting the use of a lethal weapon. 

Contact us for the equipment list.

Apprehension Avoidance/Restraint Release
16 - 17 December 2023
19 Baron Park Road Suite 101
Fredericksburg, VA 22405

 

The first and still the best Apprehension Avoidance course taught by the author, Kelly McCann. The content in this program of instruction is streamlined and guaranteed to enable you to defeat all manner of restraints you're likely to encounter - rope, tape, electrical cord, zip ties, chain and yes, handcuffs. Students will learn how to (and actually make) craft their own tool sets and how to utilize improvisation to use scraps and bits found in their environment to assist their escape. Kelly has been teaching and updating this course for over three decades. Our course is not a "tips and tricks" course or a magic primer, it is taught professionally and has stood the test of time having been taught to literally thousands of operators in need of this content to assure their safety downrange. The only one we're providing this year, don't miss this outstanding course!
