Jissen Budo Easter Training Camp 2020
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hone every aspect of your fight game with some of Australia’s most experienced budoka, including Jissen Budo Chief Instructor Paul Cale and Shihan Darren Jordan.
Held at the Australian Institute of Sports’ Combat Centre of Excellence — the home of elite combat sports training Down Under — the Jissen Budo Easter Camp 2020 will consist of two days of challenging and enlightening lessons. Each with more than 40 years’ experience in martial arts, Cale and Jordan will cover all critical aspects of martial arts training, from striking and grappling to injury-prevention and diet. With free access to the AIS facility between 7 am and 9 pm, participants will also be able to engage in open-mat training and recovery between formal sessions.
For those wanting to take their self-defence skills to another level, a Kinetic Fighting–Integrated Combat (KEF–IC) course will kick off immediately following the main camp. KEF–IC tickets are heavily discounted for camp participants and available as an optional extra – just select the camp and KEF–IC combo in the drop-down box above to book your spot.

Kinetic Fighting–Integrated Combat: Personal Combatives (Level 2-Alpha)
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 Cale literally 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 combative, 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 & 35+ years in martial arts
Build on your Level 1-Alpha training and learn how to apply the principles of Kinetic Fighting to deal with common street weapons. You will discover not only the essential components of surviving an armed attack, but how to arm yourself — legally — for the purpose. A mix of theory and practice, these lessons will also help you hone the fundamental skill sets learned in Level 1, and integrate Kinetic Fighting's core principles and survival strategies into your thinking.
In this module, you will develop a working knowledge of the following key aspects of self-protection:
- Behavioural threat awareness and weapon detection
- Weapon characteristics and vulnerabilities to exploit
- Distancing concepts specific to weapons
- Weapon suppression and control methods
- Legal considerations for possession and use of self-protection tools
- Improvisation and effective use of legal tools for defence.
