The St. Louis Combat Institute teaches the ability to survive, not win, in stressful, dangerous and violent situations in as close to actual environments as possible, in addition to states of extreme duress, and exhaustion. St. Louis Combat Institute's training philosophy is based on the principles and philosophy of Israeli Krav Maga and Systema - Russian Martial Art. With these combat systems, special uniforms and belts are irrelevant. We don’t focus on learned stances and drills. We focus on teaching battle-proven skills that are quick, unsportsmanlike & lethal, and focus on a body’s natural positioning and movement to be able to efficiently strike, absorb a strike, avoid and re-direct from any position. Our training philosophy is not to be confused with any traditional fighting arts and/or combat sports fighting systems. We are not in the business of taking years to teach a client how to incapacitate or eliminate even the most basic fighter, but rather months.
