Learn the close-combat tactics used by Australian and U.S. Special Forces

A veteran of multiple combat tours with the 2nd Commando Regiment, former Sergeant Paul Caleliterally rewrote the book on Special Forces Close-Quarter Fighting (CQF). Paul then created Infantry Integrated Combat (ICC), which later became the foundation for the Australian Army Combatives Program (ACP) — now the official close-combat training system for Australia’s general Army.

Kinetic Fighting is the culmination of all Paul’s work in combatives, and the name used to describe the method underpinning his military programs.

Whether you want to learn mental strategies and tactical applications to make your existing martial arts skills more effective, or you want to take your first steps toward a KEF–IC black belt, this course is for you. KEF–IC (Kinetic Fighting–Integrated Combat) is a new program within the Australian Army that combines tactical combative skills with free sparring/rolling and the competitive elements of the Integrated Combat Clubs, which are located at Army barracks Australia-wide.

As an extension of the Australian Army Combatives program, KEF–IC provides the training principles and core syllabus required to give soldiers a survival skill set, and mindset to match. Every element of KEF–IC is focused toward real combat and it is now being taught to non-military personnel for the first time.

On this course Paul will teach you battle-proven principles and survival tactics that are: 

• Adaptable to any martial art or professional operational procedure
• Suitable for civilians & front-line operators, from beginners to professionals
• Backed by 25+ years of career military experience & 30+ years in martial arts.
