OUR APPROACH

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK YOU KNOW, IT ONLY MATTERS WHAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY APPLY IN REALITY

"As a ten year veteran Police Officer in a large city, I am confronted daily with subjects of various size, strength, and skill levels. Rodney King’s program provides me with the tools I need to protect myself and others from aggressive suspects. I have always sought out functional training systems and when I found Rodney’s program, I knew that this system was effective and fills the void left from where our defensive tactics training left off. I am excited to train what Rodney teaches and am encouraging others in my department to do the same!

PROVEN ALL TERRAIN METHODOLOGY

What value is there in learning a Personal Threat Management system  if its utility is limited?

Over the past several years we have had the privilege and honor to have taught our Weaponize-Your Body (WYB) Programs to special force military operators, law enforcement officers, close protection teams and frontline security. WYB  has been successfully deployed in a multitude of environments, from the battlefield, to steaming jungles, to the urban sprawl and city streets. The ability to do so, not only speaks to the functionality of the ‘system’ to morph and cross-platform to various ecologies, it also defines how it was developed, and continues to be improved upon. Bottom line: the litmus test that speaks to the effectiveness of the WYB Program is built upon the testimony of real world warriors who have applied the system in the field.

 

What Sets WYB Apart?

RESEARCH BASED

Research based explanation on how and why the All Terrain Methodology works.

PROCESS FOCUSED

Results achieved with clearly articulated and well structured processes.

OUTCOME DRIVEN

Ensuring self-preservation readiness through a clear way forward by focusing on setting and achieving pragmatic objectives.

"From the 1st to 5th of October 2018 we attended a training course in Weaponize-Your-Body for law enforcement in Johannesburg, South Africa. Mr. King's approach and the demonstration of his methods highly exceeded our expectations. Based on our personal experience we would highly recommend the training and teaching methods of Mr. King and his Weaponize-Your Body program for law enforcement. We are looking forward to future cooperation and training with Rodney."

CORE PEDAGOGICAL PRINCIPLES

We believe that the human body is already an evolutionary primed self-defense system.

Our goal in the Weaponize-Your-Body programs is to teach participants how to engage, mold, and apply their primal survival system to effectively neutralize an interpersonal violent threat.

To this end, while we recognize for example that the needs of military operators, may be different to that of a civilian approach to empty hand self-preservation – all of our courses are grounded in four key pedagogical components:

PSYCHOPHYSIOLOGICAL TRAINING

Drawing on neuroscience, we teach participants how their mental state and defense physiological responses interact to affect their ability to survive, and win in interpersonal conflict.

DYNAMIC SYSTEMS LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

We have designed the Weaponize-Your-Body Programs to be learned effectively, efficiently, while building real world defensive tactics skills. Cutting away all the 'fat', we expose our students to proven methods of self-preservation skills, that easily transfer over to multiple terrains of use.

ALL TERRAIN PERSONAL THREAT MANAGEMENT

We spent a decade researching how to build an effective personal threat management approach that would allow anyone, from law enforcement, military, close protection, corporate security or civilians - to be able to deploy the tools we teach them. No matter if its in an urban area, or a jungle, the WYB methodology retains its integrity of effectiveness.

PROVEN TRACK RECORD

To date we have taught the Weaponize-Your-Body Programs to special force military units, law enforcement, close protection teams, in aviation security, corporate security and individuals across the globe. Our students success in applying the WYB approach in real world interpersonal conflict, is not only our litmus test, but continues to inform the continued development of our programs.

"Finally! Functional defensive tactics training for law enforcement! Thank you Rodney King. As a law enforcement officer and defensive tactics instructor I am always looking for newly evolved training to enhance our programs. The tactics available to us now are geared towards a compliant subject and leave a lot to chance when facing a suspect who wants to take you out. Rodney’s’ program and stand up game deliver effective defense to gain control of a combative situation quickly using gross motor movements and allows the officer to transition to other tools as needed. As a defensive tactics instructor Rodney’s program is a solid foundation for any law enforcement training unit. 2 thumbs up!
