However, the system is not just a bunch of techniques thrown together.
The focus for any self protection system must be principles. This is because no two attacks are ever the same, no two people are ever the same and even the same person faced with a particular threat, may respond differently on different days.
As such the following principles were used to create USP:
Techniques should be movements based on natural instincts
One defence must work against a variety of attacks where possible
Techniques must be accessible to the average person
Techniques must work under, or even be improved by, stress. Stress should trigger the technique automatically
The techniques and principles from the systems and knowledge bases were considered and re-worked in a measured way in conjunction with 23 years experience of real life violence and training by the founder alongside considerable help from his students and other highly experienced friends and colleagues.
