  The difference between a " Martial Art" and a " Combat Sport. What many do not know is, the term " Martial Art" literally means a Roman god of war. Mars ( as he is called) watched over farmers and soldiers. When a soldier went to battle, they took full armour, weapons, and tactics to the battle field. A combat sport is between two people with rules, no weapons, and for entertainment ( MMA, UFC, TAP OUT, etc). These are not in anyway as martial art. It is a combat sport. Martial arts is deemed as self - defense or a military action against one or more opponents. 

Our above pics show soldiers who ate training for battle using hand to hand and weapon skills. See my blog page for more information about what a historical Martial art really is. In ancient Egypt, it was called the Montw arts. The greatest of pharaohs like Ramses and Thutmoses said that they were the sdons of Montw ( raging bulls). Montw arts is seen as full battle field system! That uses hand to hand, weapons, tactics, and strategies to overcome the enemy. SDRI teaches the concepts and skills of the Egyptian history of self-defense. 
 Pan Kau Rau Shen Ethics of Combat is broken down into 3 distinct phases:

 1. Non lethal: Mindset of Combat. This is the know how on applying the SDR ' Spontaneous Defense Response' to corrective postures, basic blunt force strikes, and pain compliance to decrease threat from increasing at its early stages. Hot hard, fast and fierce to reduce risk of threats or aggression.

 2. Less than lethal: Attacks that continue to increase without stopping may need additional increase in the use of force. This can include harder blunt force direct, dislocating, or disfiguring. Decreasing threat is to deal with the aggression of attacks.

 3. Lethal force: When there is no other option in decreasing, reducing, or the attacker stopping. The only other alternative is to use deadly force. Applications of any un orthodox methods maybe applied. Anything to survive the fight. Self defense is not personal, its taking care of business. Serious business.
