    Immediate Action Jiu-jitsu

    Real World Application of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a Weapon-Based-Environment

    Contrary to popular belief, many empty hand fights and those involving weapons, end up on the ground. No amount of pontificating or self-proclaimed “expert” posturing will change this simple fact. If you ignore this reality, you may very well find yourself in a situation you cannot handle with disastrous consequences. This course is designed to give the layman a realistic and functional set of concepts, techniques, methodologies, training drills and experiences that will prepare them for a worst case “ground-fight” scenario. All techniques and concepts are high percentile applications which span a wide spectrum of confrontations. Training consists of presentation, drilling and Force-On-Force evolutions providing attendees with immediate feedback regarding the efficacy of the skills learned. The goal of this course is not to create a “ground fighter” or grappler. The objective is to provide attendees who have limited training time and resources with solid ground survival and escape fundamentals geared toward the increasingly violent weapon based environments they may live, work and/or travel within. And all techniques/concepts are from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and are combat proven over the past 80 years by thousands of practitioners, including the U.S. Army.

    These methods are for everyone regardless of physical condition – young, old, male, female, athlete or not – You DO NOT have to be a professional fighter to perform at a functional level. This will be a class about physical training, but it is NOT boot camp. Participants may go at the pace that is comfortable for them, while trying to push the envelope of their own individual performance.
    Requirements : Loose, comfortable but durable clothes, mouthpiece, cup, notebook, and an open mind
    The course is divided into modules that address specific situations. Among the topics covered by the modules include:


    Surviving/defending/escaping when you are on the ground underneath an attacker
    Surviving/defending/escaping when you are on the ground and your opponent is standing
    Functional methods of getting back to your feet
    Countering takedowns and remaining on your feet
    IFWA (in-fight weapon access)
    Denying your opponent’s weapon access – understanding technique, positional hierarchy AND timing
    Multiple opponents – realistically maximizing your chances
    Surviving inside the guard
    Proper usage of the guard to win/escape
    Defending against punches, elbow strikes, stomps, kicks, etc…
    Proper role of “dirty tactics”
    Essential training principles, methods, & drills
    How these concepts & techniques remain true with or without weapon involvement
    Learning to deal with the most common MMA attacks and holds
    Recognizing and defending against common submissions (guillotine, rear naked choke, triangle, arm bar, etc.)
    Structuring and balancing your training and integrating it into a busy real world lifestyle

    Immediate Action Pugilism

    Clinch for Self-Preservation in the Weapons Based Environment

    Sometimes, in order to defend ourselves and our loved ones, the only tool we might have to rely on is our own body. Even if you have external weapons, you might not be able to access them. Your safety may come down to how well you can survive a hand-to-hand confrontation. The Immediate Action Pugilism course is designed to give the layman a realistic and functional set of concepts, techniques, methodologies, training drills and experiences that will prepare them for a worst case H2H scenario. All techniques and concepts are high percentile applications which span a wide spectrum of confrontations. Training consists of presentation, drilling and Force-On-Force evolutions providing attendees with immediate feedback regarding the efficacy of the skills learned. The goal of this course is not to create a professional boxer or MMA competitor. The objective is to provide attendees who have limited training time and resources with solid fundamentals geared toward the increasingly violent weapon based environments they may live, work and/or travel within.

    All the techniques presented are based on orthodox and MMA boxing methods and are the best, most functional and high percentage moves and tactics available.

    These methods are for everyone regardless of physical condition – young, old, male, female, athlete or not – You DO NOT have to be a professional fighter to perform at a functional level. This will be a class about physical training, but it is NOT boot camp. Participants may go at the pace that is comfortable for them, while trying to push the envelope of their own individual performance.
    Requirements: Boxing gloves (at least 12oz or bigger unless per-authorized by the instructor), loose, comfortable but durable clothes, mouthpiece, cup, notebook, and an open mind. MMA gloves are strongly encouraged, but are not mandatory.

    About the instructor:
    Cecil Burch has been pursuing his passion for Martial Arts since he was 16. After studying Shotokan, Kenpo, and Tae Kwon Do, he moved to Jeet Kune Do and the Filipino Martial Arts under Dan Inosanto and Paul Vunak, where he undertook an-depth study of the combative use of the stick and knife along with empty hands training. Cecil was one of Vunak’s first certified Full Instructors. In 1990, he began extensive study in Savate under Salem Assli. He also spent time learning Muay Thai and has been asked to be an instructor in a number of different Pentjak Silat systems such as Tongkat, Mustika Kwitang and Bukti Negara.

    In 1994 he began training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with Megaton Dias. Cecil is currently a black belt under Megaton and has competed extensively, including the 2010 Pan-Ams as the Bronze Medalist (as a black belt), 2010 American Nationals Gold (black belt – heavyweight division) & Silver (absolute), 2009 American National Gold (brown belt – super heavyweight) & Silver medal (brown belt – absolute division), and the 2006 Pan-Am gold medal (purple belt – super-heavyweight), 2015 Pan-Ams at bronze, and 2015 World Masters at bronze.

    He has been training in boxing since 1987, where he started with Paavo Kettonen at Top Level Boxing in Phoenix, AZ. He has continued that training with some of the top striking coaches in the world, including such world class trainers as Adam Singer of The HardCore Gym (producer of numerous UFC fighters).

    Cecil has also been a firearms enthusiast all his life. He went through his first NRA course at the age of twelve. In 1985 he took the General Pistol class at Gunsite under Jeff Cooper and Louis Awerbuck. He has taken Combat Shotgun and Sub-Machine Gun seminars with Chuck Taylor. More recently, he has trained extensively with SouthNarc, as well as other luminaries like Tom Givens, Kyle Lamb and Larry Vickers. He has also competed in DCM rifle matches, GSSF events, and local practical shooting matches.

    Cecil has traveled extensively and conducted seminars across the U.S. as well as internationally in places like England and Singapore. He has been a featured presenter at the Mid-Atlantic Training Conference, New England Shooter’s Summit, and the Rangemaster Polite Society Tactical Conference, and has worked extensively with Law Enforcement officers, Federal Air Marshals, military special operation troops, and private citizens on the functional utilization of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, boxing, and clinchfighting in close quarters combat.
