Emerson Combat Systems • Combatives – Edged Weapons | EmersonTrainingAcademy.com
Mr. Emerson is a respected authority on ancient warfare and hand-to-hand combat systems. He has undertaken an extensive study of ancient hand-to-hand combat systems from the ancient Roman Gladiatorial and Legionary fighting systems to the present.
The system that he now presents is a hybridization of systems and is based upon many gladiatorial and legionary techniques, principles and concepts. You will find that this course and system are like no other and do not represent a rehashing of techniques as taught by so many others. What is contained in this system is 2000 years of distillation to what now represents an original style of fighting – original meaning from the origin. These are combat techniques. They are raw, savage, simple and brutal. They are designed for survival.
