We teach the world what to do when things get scary

Real World Self Defense

Learn the real world base self-defense system that is used by the professionals here in the United States; our police, corrections, and our U.S. Military who have to win life or death encounters….

Real-world survival isn’t a sport; where you get time limits, weight classes, controlled safe arenas, a referee or where you can stop and throw in the towel if things are not going right, and when 10-2-1 is a great record. A loss just isn’t an option us in the street or courtroom!

Also, real-world survival can’t be based on tactics and techniques that only 20-somethings can perform and that require years of practice in order to become proficient…this is where traditional martial arts are great – when you have time to build your learning skills and practice. Otherwise, they’d be of little value for the vast majority of the population.

Finally, in real-world survival you do not get any advanced warning, and a friendly crowd or replays to ensure the rules aren’t broken. In the real world arena there are no rules — except after-the-fact in court where many physical confrontations end up.

Sadly, most self-defense and martial arts training doesn’t consider these realities.

Instead the word reality is used to mask just the same information, techniques and tactics with a different spin off, sadly ending in the same sad results….self-defense training is rarely focused on defending your life, the techniques taught require physical capabilities beyond what’s possessed by most people, and the ever-present legal issues are seldom considered…in fact is some of the techniques and tactics were really used to defend a person they could even end up in jail with the same attacker who tried to harm or worst attempt to kill them.

In contrast over the last 30 years, the fighting systems we have developed and taught to police in patrol or undercover and tactical operators, corrections, security and military professionals:

  1. Are based on staying alive; within the legal system – you will be judged by
  2. Focus on all of the environmental factors where these techniques and tactics will be applied
  3. Work despite the physical limitations of the professional applying them
  4. Take the physical capabilities of the assailant into considerations (there are no weight classes in real life encounters)
  5. Are quick to learn and easy to remember;
  6. All based on gross motor skills response
  7. Each technique can be done from the standing or ground positions
  8. Every technique is taught in 3 steps
  9. Are court room defensible
  10. Have been proven to work in real life or death situations

My name is Dave Young and that’s why I founded US Fighting Systems in 2010 — to bring to the general public the same training that professionals receive – that have been and are field proven daily.

I have over 30 years of training and experience as a civilian and military police officer, corrections officers, security agent and a veterans of the United states Marine Corps and have been training police, corrections, and military professionals how to defend themselves since 1980, during that time, I have created and refined a set of fighting systems that meet the above criteria. For my students, a loss is unthinkable and they don’t have years to develop the physical abilities and skills to stay alive.

Instead, they have limited time for training and retraining — and almost every physical encounter will end up being reviewed both criminally and civilly.

That’s why US Fighting Systems is such a breakthrough in self-defense training, visit maximumfitnessvacaville.com. For over 30 years, the System’s tactics and techniques have been proven to save lives on the streets and be defendable in court – there are 3 levels – you are learning the system, you can do the system or you can teach the system. We use not belts, just the clothing you will be wearing when the attack on your life actually comes, a mouth piece and a good sense of humour.

US Fighting Systems is the first real world based survival system for the every man and every woman who wants to feel safe and able to defend themselves.

If that’s you, I encourage you to learn more about us. Review this website, sign up for our mailing list, or check out our training calendar. And return often — we are just getting started and have big plans for expansion over the next 12 months.
