Our martial art is not a sport. It grew from a need to protect yourself in a life or death situation not from realitively safe competitions. Yet many people train without considering this. They defend and attack to satisfy their ego instead of to protect their life. Cover Creates Control is about how to first and foremost not get hurt while applying our art in real life situations. The exercises look at our basics but from a mindset of always cover first which when done right actually controls the opponent better than force and speed.
