The Rule of 25

Written by Admin on . Posted in On Combatives, Science, Videos

The 25% Rule of Pramek is our guiding rule in combatives.

Will we always obey it?  No.

But we can always train to it.

Many combatives and martial art systems focus on the threat at hand, thinking little of what happens after the threat is addressed.  Many forget they need a reserve.

By training to the 25% Rule and finding our level of efficiency, we can always ensure a reserve and train for it.

Attacking Balance

Attacking the vestibular:  one of the most effective close quarters methods available for maximum damage.

The vestibular (inner ear) system is the key to our equilibrium – when we attack it, we attack the very ability of an enemy to stand.

Below is a great article for a student to understand the vestibular system.

When we attack the vestibular system, like we discuss in Breaking Balance, our goal is to induce vertigo by causing impact to the inner ear and semi-circular canal.  By impacting this system, we in turn disrupt the ability of the enemy to stand and maintain equilibrium, forcing them to rely on their sight and touch (visual and proprioceptive) systems to maintain equilibrium.  This puts the enemy at a severe disadvantage.

This isn’t a fitness video of people lifting weights holding a pistol – this video combines the scientific process of CCIA (Combine, Coordination, Integrate, Assimilate) from Pramek with the firearms instruction of Sage Dynamics.  F3 is a method of fitness that constantly reinforces proper technique while making a shooter faster, more accurate, and stronger.

Matt Powell and Aaron Cowan (Sage Dynamics) combine for the first time in this functional fitness video devoted to firearms and pistol training.
