Pan Kau Rau Shen- SHIELD for the Battlefield


 * Pan Kau Rau Shen - S.H.I.E.L.D ( Spontaneous Holds In Enabling Learned Defense) for the Battlefield. 

SDR ( Street Defense Research) studies a vary concepts from ancient Egypt for modern times. Pan Kau Rau Shen is a Montu ( Martial ) art form of self-defense that uses tools and tactics for street survival.

This article is a basic over view of how to look at t use of force in a very practical perspective. After much research on the use of force, there are many variations of how one should use defense and active counter measures.

Pan Kau Rau Shen ( Egyptian -Kemetic) that translates ‘ total skills’ of combat. SDR views the levels of force using a Pyramid form to explain how to view one level to another.  In ancient Egypt, the name for color is  ' Iwen' was considered as an integral part of an person 's nature.

S.H.I.E.L.D ( Spontaneous Holds In Enabling Learned Defenses ) is a unique concept that uses pre-determined ways to achieve efficient results . In ancient Egypt, the shield was a very important dense tool used on the battlefield. It was also used to protect the Pharaohs in war against the enemies arrows or spears.  

In Greek Mythology, Memnon used a shield in the Trojan War.
The departure of Memnon for Troy. Greek, circa 550-525 BC. Black -figure vase Royal Museum of Art and History.

It states in the history of Memnon: Eos ( Goddess of the Dawn went to Hephaestus and asked for a full Panoply ( suit of armor  )f or Memnon. It included a full suit including one of the most effective and unbreakable pieces of amour, the shield.

Achillies ( The Greek Warrior ) also had a shield and went they met on the battlefield, it is said that the two warriors looked like giants. They clashed and fought for days, using the shield as an offensive and defensive weapon.

 In the Shades of Memnon book series 2 P.57 , it states " Neither man could land a solid blow due to the excellence of their blocks and counter strikes, so they seized each other and began to grapple".

 Also, in Shades of Memnon book III, it states " Suddenly he ( Achillies) rushed forward slicing away at Memnon with array of deadly sword combinations. To his amazemenrt, Memnon parried and blocked them all, then he returned with his own volley of near-deadly strokes. P. 27.

 Modern Egypt, Cairo ( Special Forces ) 777 : The shield is still being used to this very day by law enforcement or security forces that includes corrections. From the first shield of Nubia, ancient Egypt, Greek, Roman, Asia  or even modern Europe it has remained as one the longest standing pieces of equipment ever created.

How is the S.H.I.E.L.D system used ?  In ancient Egypt, the term could interchangeably mean color appearance character, being or nature. The Concept:  The Levels of force is made of the 3 R’s and Decoding Colors or Combat. This is not a tier level on the use force instead, it is a concept on how to apply force is different situation. The color code is a concept that prepare one mentally to fight physically. mental preparedness is the key to solving problems. In order to  have a mindset of combat, it requires that one learns and apply 'level' of thinking.  

 "The important means of surviving a lethal confrontation, according to Jeff Cooper, is neither weapon or the martial skills. The tool is a combat mindset set forth in his book principles of personal defense".  

 Read - (  Pay attention to detai ) l:  You are alert, aware, and able to recognize basic information based on different settings in the environment. Relaxed but ready and not paranoid. In this state, it is hard to be surprise by sudden confrontations. This mean to scan, be attentive, and  be prepared.

 Respond -  Communication: This is recognition of transmitted information. A heightened level of awareness that you sense ‘some - thing is not right’. Evaluate and Formulate a plan of action. Amber represents 'between' fro aware to asses how to communicate. Observe potential danger and be prepared take action. Identify the threat. Take strategic steps to evade or engage.

 Result - Decision: Execute a plan of action to diffuse a situation. This is done by reading ( recognizing ) signals information of communication and judging the best course of action for an end. The goal is to  De-Escalate the threat before it Escalate. The threat is verified. Execute effective and efficient methods.

This concept is designed to a strengthen any use of force wheel. The ancient Egyptians knew how importance  colors and how it affected the mind. SDR goal is to develop a more practical way to critical thinking for a vary of situations. It has been proven that better thinking produces better results. Our research s geared toward mind set development, personal growth, and the combat arts.

I am sorry but, who ever shared that piece of information with you is 'dead' wrong. Today army fatigues are work as camouflage. This includes 'Green', White, black, gray, and silver '. Colors is in every area of life and our minds. So, wrong information there. I will add a picture to show this truth. Please see more of our postings on this subject. Thank you! TT
