Rapid Assault Tactics (R.A.T.) Training
Rapid Assault Tactics or R.A.T. is a proactive, professional level self-defense system that can be effectively utilized by all men and women, regardless of athleticism or physique. R.A.T. was designed by the internationally renowned Progressive Fighting Systems (P.F.S.) founder Paul Vunak when commissioned by the U.S. Navy to teach the S.E.A.L. teams in Virginia. Today, R.A.T. is also taught to the F.B.I., D.E.A., and more than 50 police departments across the United States, as well as to thousands of civilians interested in learning realistic, streamlined self-defense in a short amount of time. R.A.T. is an offshoot of Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do Concepts. Its core is based on the fundamentals of entry, pressure and termination of a fight. Nerve destructions, straight blast, head butts, knees and elbows are the methods emphasized in this fighting system, as are basic trapping techniques from Wing Chun Kung Fu and Filipino Kali. Sensitivity drills are then taught to complement the trapping techniques, making them more effective. R.A.T. a quintessential "crashcourse" in street fighting.
