Background to No Nonsense Self Defence -

CQB is a military fighting system has been developed from the close combat practices in ancient civilisations including the Ancient Greeks, Celts and Egyptians, and the skills have evolved over the last 6000 years.
The Todd Group are the custodians of the doctrine of CQB within New Zealand. Geoff Todd has travelled extensively and immersed himself within a culture of close combat fighting styles in order to develop a fighting system that is specific to situations of hand to hand combat. 

Psychological conditioning is an essential accompaniment to the physical skills that are taught because without the determination and confidence to initiate the physical skills and the inner resolve to complete the task, techniques are of little value in a true combat situation.

The Todd Group endorses an appreciation of all emotion so that it can be used effectively towards neutralising the enemy threat as quickly as possible. Fear is a natural emotion, and the physical symptoms of fear can be eliminated from your consciousness by slowing and controlling your breathing to reduce the heart rate. Fear must be eliminated immediately by focusing on an enemy’s weaknesses, not his strengths. The next stage is to continuously say to yourself that you will win and cannot be beaten. This is coupled with the visual perception of the enemy’s weakness and the mental conviction that you must and will win, and cannot be beaten. Geoff Todd deplores the word ‘survivor’ and he states in the manual of CQB that the word survivor is a patronising way to describe a victim. You have not been killed but you have been defeated, and he suggests that perhaps it was this defeatist attitude that lead you into the unfortunate situation for which you are described a ‘survivor’ and not a ‘winner’.
The term defensive does not exist in CQB. It is either offensive or counter offensive. The fighting system teaches that in true combat there is no such thing as defence; you attack the weapon, the arm holding the weapon, major vitals, or a combination of all in order to preserve your own life. This is not a fighting sport.
