Controlling Distance - UK & US TOUR 2017
Dates and locations not yet set. If you would like a "Controlling Distance" seminar at your club, organisation or location please let us know.
Duration of the seminar: 4 Hours
The Controlling Distance seminar looks at the process of dealing with anger, how through our own actions, or the intended outcome of the aggressor, anger can escalate to aggression and to violence.
Covering the psychological and physical applications of dealing with anger, aggression and violence. To better understand what is going on when we are faced with reality. What is normal and legal behaviour, and what is deemed illegal and unlawful behaviour. It focuses on how we control distance and control the process of anger and its escalation into aggressive and violent behaviours. How we can use assessment measures to try to de-escalate and negotiate. And where unavoidable how to deal with Active Threat Control.
Dates, times, locations and cost yet to be set.
The profits from these seminars help Karl continue his work in Anti-Human Trafficking.
Seminar based on the book "Controlling Distance".

Karl, is a Registered Instructor within the World Combat Association.
The WCA was founded by Peter Consterdine and Geoff Thompson of the UK’s British Combat Association (BCA); an organisation that changed the face of martial arts, not only domestically but in a wider international context.
Launched in 2008 by Peter Consterdine, with Geoff Thompson as Co-Chief Instructor, the WCA is the organisation for our international groups and their Instructors. The WCA was, very much, a product of demand. For many years, overseas interest in the British Combat Association could not really be satisfied by a domestic U.K. organisation, hence the formation of the World Combat Association where all the benefits of membership open to our BCA people are now available globally. Karl was appointed the First Australian Principal Representative for the WCA. Karl is the first Individual outside the UK that has been appointed such a position.
Karl is also the International Author of the Best Selling book. "Violence Evolving"
