Rodney teaching at the Royal Thai Army Special Warfare Command
Crazy Monkey Defense (CMD) has been taught to, and deployed by some of the world’s finest modern day warriors. We have taught CMD to special force military operators, law enforcement teams, and close protection groups. As such, CMD has been successfully deployed in various environments, from the battlefield, hot steaming jungles, to the urban sprawl and city streets.
The ability of Crazy Monkey Defense to do so, speaks to the functionality of the system to morph and cross-platform to various self-preservation environments. This is why when I talk about CMD in respect to dealing with interpersonal violence, I define it as an All Terrain Combat Athletically Based Self-Preservation system.
However, although learning self-preservation skills is a default in Crazy Monkey Defense training, what most excites us about coaching the program to others — is how we purposively empower our students to apply the lessons they learn on the mat to take on the martial arts of everyday life more skillfully. Self-mastery then through the experience of Crazy Monkey Defense, is part of everything we do.
Crazy Monkey Defense (CMD) is the ‘thinking man’s modern martial arts experience.’ If you are looking for a hyper-competitive, or drenched in reality based self-defense paranoia kind of martial arts experience — then CMD simply isn’t for you. There are loads of people teaching those kinds of experiences, and you can find them anywhere on YouTube or street corners.
If you want to engage your valuable time in a modern martial arts experience that is more than simply about learning how to fight — then CMD is for you.
Crazy Monkey Defense integrates proven self-preservation skills, with cutting edge tools from the field of performance psychology — to offer a modern martial arts experience that will enable you to purposefully show up with clarity, poise and equanimity. You may never have to use the self-preservation skills we coach you, but you are guaranteed to use the inner fitness skills you develop on the mat to right hook life.
