About the event
Train in Paul Cale’s KINETIC FIGHTING – the world-leading close-combat program used by Australian Special Forces & Army, tailored for everyday self-protection.
A veteran of multiple combat tours with the 2nd Commando Regiment, former Sergeant Paul Cale literally rewrote the book on Special Forces Close-Quarter Fighting (CQF). Paul then created Infantry Integrated Combat (ICC), which later became the foundation for the Australian Army Combatives Program (ACP) — now the official close-combat training system for Australia’s general Army. Kinetic Fighting is the culmination of all of Cale’s work in combatives, and the name used to describe the method underpinning his military programs.
Whether you want to learn mental strategies and tactical applications to make your existing martial arts skills more effective, or you need to build effective self-protection skills from the ground up, this course is for you. You may even want to take your first steps toward a KEF–IC black belt. KEF–IC (Kinetic Fighting–Integrated Combat) is a new program within the Australian Army that combines tactical combative skills with free sparring/rolling and the competitive elements of the Integrated Combat Clubs, which are located at Army barracks Australia-wide. As an extension of ACP, KEF–IC provides the training principles and core syllabus required to give soldiers a survival skill set, and mindset to match. Every element of KEF–IC is focused toward real combat and was taught to non-military personnel for the first time in 2019.
ON THIS COURSE, CALE’S BATTLE-PROVEN PRINCIPLES AND SURVIVAL TACTICS WILL BE TAUGHT WHICH ARE:
- Adaptable to any martial art or professional operational procedure
- Suitable for civilians & front-line operators, from beginners to professionals
- Backed by Paul Cale’s 25+ years of career military experience & 40 years in martial arts.
COURSE DETAILS: Self-Protection Essentials In this module (known as Alpha in the KEF–IC syllabus), you will cover the key aspects of surviving — and preventing — violent confrontation: mindset, tactics, legal and moral considerations, and functional, high-percentage techniques. You will also discover how KEF–IC’s battlefield origins inform everything that you learn, and how to adapt its proven principles to your own abilities and existing skill-sets (if applicable).
