The Crucible

The Crucible is for someone who is in it to win it. All of the programs offered by Focus are segmented blocks of a bigger picture. The game changer wants to be in that bigger picture! Most who enter the Game Changer do it because they have a desire to be pushed further than they would push themselves.


From the Ground up you will be schooled from the front to back on everything Counter Violence. Weapons and mass attack will be the norm. You will become an athlete in a matter of months. You will begin to gravitate towards calm because you don't have to prove anything. Your physical abilities will skyrocket. But you will want to quit and you will want to give up. And yes it is frustrating at times. But imagine having that type of Bruce Lee skill at your disposal. It is said to be very liberating. Only a few are able to take the three years it takes but that's why it's unique.


Carrying a weapon is an option that many feel is an appropriate measure towards increasing the probability of surviving violence. After all, just about any weapon will serve as a force multiplier in any deadly situation. The threat disparity that occurs within the nature of violence reinforces the idea that weaponry can greatly put the odds in your favor. Whether it is a gun, knife or some other type of weapon, most only focus their training on the function of that weapon, yet that is just the beginning. In this program you will be exposed to the following:

The ground is not only a dangerous place to be during an attack, it is a very difficult place to attempt and defend yourself from. If you have any experience or exposure to the martial arts you will undoubtedly have heard of Brazilian Jujitsu. The sport of BJJ took the world by storm in the early 1990's and has been on a roll ever since. Although the relevance from sport to street has some application, much of it lies within a very different context. The Focus Concrete Jitz program gives participants the ability to defend their lives without having to spend the years in a sport or traditional martial art to become proficient. Concrete Jitz addresses the realities of the good citizen and uncovers the most specific elements of ground warfare concerning the elements within violence. No one will pull you in the "Guard", or attempt and arm bar. While on the ground, violence is going to kick you in the head and stomp on your face. Let our Specialist show you the way to solve the riddle of this position of the ground within 6 hours. 

  • The victim positions

  • Mobility on the ground

  • How to strike from your back

  • How and when to draw your weapon

  • How to fight someone who is standing

  • Mass attack while on your back

  • To submit or not submit

  • The Rape Escape
