Jim Wagner Reality Based Protection Systems
Jim Wagner was one of the founders of PPCT....Pressure Point Control Tactics. This was one of the first reality based tactical defense approaches used by law enforcement.
I currently train in a system of JuJitsu based self defense that uses much of the PPCT work and the work of Bruce Siddle, Loren Christensen, at al. One of my teachers is a police officer who has been working in these systems for some time.
I have been wanting for a while to go and train with some of the gurus of the RBSD movement, and when I did some research, I found that Wagner would be in NYC for the first week in December of this year.
I signed up for the entire week of classes, which is the base requirement for Level 1 Certification in his system. I should be receiving the book / outline / and class material in the mail any day.
I have not posted numerical reviews because I have not been to the class yet. However, as I get the materials and then as I take the course, I will come back and update the review with numerical values and a full write up of the experience.
I wanted to post this up early so that others could weigh in with their experiences with Mr. Wagner (if there are any) as well as to get some preliminary feedback on questions or ideas tha people might want me to keep an eye out for or might be interested in hearing about.
I will update regularly.
