The BSR self-offense course is an unarmed combatives course utilizing the “Gutter Fighting” approach. The technique is simple, offering the assailant more pain and violence using gross motor strikes that are easily recalled under stress. The gutter fighting approach gets its lineage and principles from Rex Applegate and William Fairbairn. These men were responsible for the training of WWII Special Operations Forces and Office of Special Services (OSS) clandestine operators on how to incapacitate their attackers using close quarter Gutter Fighting techniques. These same close quarter techniques are used today by our elite U.S. Special Operation Forces.
