We teach our students different aspects of the above techniques. We then implement these techniques into real-life scenarios to boost confidence and self-awareness. For example, we will put a student in a stress situation e.g. student standing at a bus stop , when a gang of people approach her, who try to take her valuables. The gang will shout and be physically aggressive in a controlled environment, whilst the student being tested uses the techniques learnt to see if they will work for her. Everyone will find the method that is best suited to them. This is how Fusion Fighting System is unique, it teaches lots of different techniques, but encourages a student to pick up and perfect whichever method they feel is best for them.
