“A 9mm is a futile defense” - Captain Chris and his “Close Combat Training” system
In his sales blogs, he claims that after an embarrassing “Road Rage” incident, he traveled all over the world to study with legendary fighters in the Far East. Even went to Britain and learned from old WW II Commandos those techniques they used to “Kill the Nazis”. Then worked out an innovative system consisting of “Gross Motor” moves to more efficiently utilize the aforementioned Commando techniques while under extreme duress. This is the system he offered to sell me. That's not what was in the package.
There isn't a single windpipe crushing, neck snapping, crippling, maiming or blinding technique anywhere. The gross motor movements are the few techniques shown on his website. It's got “karate” chops (to the back of an opponent's shoulder, in one example). It's got “whip” kicks, and of course, wristlocks. I cannot believe that WW II Commandos killed the Nazis with wristlocks and whipkicks. Never mind “Karate” chops to the backs of their shoulders. Nor do I believe that any Nazi ever attacked anyone with a Norman Bates-style downward stabbing motion.
After Capt. Chris recovered, he claims to have had an epiphany regarding the lack of streetworthiness of his earlier, traditional martial arts training, deciding that it didn't prepare people for the real world. His new system he claimed, addressed that deficiency. Yet, in his DVDs, he spends an inordinate amount of time demonstrating the very wristlocks he'd learned as part of his traditional training, finishing with the information that once the viewer has an evildoer in a wristlock, he can do “anything I want with him”.
