Introduction

 

Sudden Violence is an apt name for the eclectic martial arts or self-defense system that I now teach. The name was suggested to me by a friend and student, Doug in the USA. It has come mainly from the Internal Martial Arts of Taijiquan and Bagwazhang. The name, "Reflex Violence" comes from the video series called 'Sudden Violence' A series that only dealt with the very direct and dangerous street-fighting method that I now teach. However, there was already a book called Sudden Violence, so I changed the name to 'Reflex Violence' which is more in keeping with what the internal martial arts are about anyway.

 

Hidden within the Internal Martial Arts are some of the most violent self-defense methods ever invented. And that's what self-defense has to be in order to survive street attacks. If you try to 'yield' to an attack in the traditional manner that most teachers tell us to, then you invite defeat and possible injury and death in street attacks. And it is so obvious to me that teachers who tell their students that all they have to do it to yield to an attack just to show the attacker that they know what they are doing, have never themselves been in a serious, life-threatening situation.

 

It's all there in the Taijiquan and Bagwazhang 'classics'. However, most teachers take these classic saying too literally and try to execute what those classics say before they have risen to a high enough level. You cannot understand what the great old masters have said when you are not at their level to begin with. The old masters did not write the classics when they were beginning! They wrote them once they had understood fully the meaning of 'internal' and 'small frame'. They wrote them when they were very advanced. What is the use of writing a guide for beginners? The beginner can learn the basic movements from anyone who knows them well enough. But once learnt, it is very important to have a teacher who is able to impart the inner knowledge and also to take the student onto the more advanced forms. And only then will the students understand the true meaning of what the classics are trying to teach us.

 

The whole secret to learning about 'Reflex violence' in the internal martial art, are in the movements themselves and how the practitiner executes those movements. How the body moves is singularly the most important area of one's training.
