Why the name Integrated Street Combatives ( ISC)?

At ISC we combine a variety of mixed martial arts and integrate them to create a system that is effective and efficient in a real life confrontation.

What makes ISC different?

Unlike many mixed martial arts that focus on the physical aspects of fighting, we provide you with the fundamental skills on how to prevent a physical confrontation from occurring in the first place. Participants are provided prevention strategies on how to prevent, and/or avoid, a stranger on stranger attack. We then educate students on how to de-escalate a confrontation using verbal communication. If you can walk and talk your way out of a physical fight, high five, you’re doing a good job. The second you go hands on with someone your risk of injury sky rockets. We provide you with the necessary skills to de-escalate conflict and seek safety without going hands on.

Reality: There are times that, no matter how much you walk and talk, some interactions will go hands on. If you can not walk and talk your way out of a confrontation we provide you with the fundamental physical skills to de-escalate the situation and end the fight quickly.

Legal Aspects: Unlike most mixed martial arts that focus solely on the physical skills, we educate participants on threat perception, the criminal code, and how you articulate yourself; what you did, how you did it, and why you did it.
