We live in an age where information has never been more accessible. Long gone are the days when most martial arts schools jealously restricted their students from being able to train in other disciplines. CCMA was not born out of a tradition or culture, but honours the spirit of the nomadic fighter and the scientific method. “Vagabond Warriors”, created by Jamie Clubb the presenter/writer behind the best-selling DVD series Cross Training in the Martial Arts, offers students and instructors, regardless of their level of experience, an opportunity to experiment, research, test and evaluate different training methods. Our unique workshops and seminars develop training regimes with groups of like-minded free-thinking people to further the study of effective and efficient methods for self defence and combat sports.
The following three areas are the most lacking in the education of combative systems – be they for self defence or sport – and “Vagabond Warriors” uses them as guide for our training programmes.
C.S.I. – Clarification, Scepticism and Individuality
Clarification – Beginning with the objective in mind. Defining and addressing everything we do with a clear single short-term and long-term target. Objectives dictate the exercise from the warm-up movements you do to the classes you choose.
Scepticism – Rational critical thinking. We find flaws in training exercises in order to progress learning experiences and to reduce personal weaknesses. CCMA tests concepts and creates experiments to test claims.
Individuality – Interpersonal violence is personal, so above all else the single learner should be at the centre of all aspects of training.
Regular monthly workshops are held at St. Nicholas School, Kenilworth. Check our calendar for dates and times. Seminars, private lessons and courses can be booked around this theme.
