    W. E Fairbairn close combat

    Hey there,

    Ive recently got into the W.E Fairbain Close Combat and have been reading the All-In FIghting book. I like what I see in it and It seems to be very simple and effective.

    I was just wondering if anyone knows much about it and if there are instructors teaching this stuff, or has most of it just been incorporated into alot of rbsd systems that are around now.

    I do recognise alot of the techniques and theorys from stuff ive done before.

    Any info would be great

    Cheers

    Tom

    There's a small but active international community of instructors who have either revived the Fairbairn system as a whole or are teaching elements of it in an RBSD context. Google should take you where you need to go.

    As the OP is in England, look up Dennis Martin and the Liverpool Gutterfighters, as they are an active group still working form these teachings. Carl was an incredible martial artist, and DVDs are available of much of his stuff, but he sadly passed away several years ago, making "live training" with him impossible.

    I second this, the Liverpool Gutterfighters are a great bunch. My friends dad used to train with them, great guys...and they know their stuff.
    I remember their situational control techniques were very solid.
