Rapid Assault Tactics:
The RAT system was developed by Paul Vunak specifically for the US Navy Seals as a primary combative program taken from the Jeet Kune Do concepts. How it differs to any other art or system out there is the Straight Blast concept. This concept deletes base and balance to the assailant, its an equalizer, you become capable of taking out a larger person then yourself quick and efficient with the most barbaric tools, Head butts, Knees, Elbows and Kina Mutai (biting, eye gouging, finger breaking and pinching). Today the RAT system is taught to Special Forces, Military, Marines, Rangers, F.B.I, D.E.A, C.I.A, S.W.A.T. Teams, over 50 police Departments in the U.S and other countries.
It can best be described as a way of bringing forth the most violence, using the most barbaric weapons, to effectively defend ones' life in the most efficient and safest manner possible. The RAT enables average men and women to quickly defend themselves against a larger aggressor bent on your destruction.
The RAT System is about survival or self-preservation, and is ideal when a situation has escalated where your life is threatened and the only option is to use the most lethal tools to preserve your life. The central core of this program involves knowing how and when to use head butts, knees and elbows (HKE).
The curriculum is as follows:
- Training the lethal tools: HKE or head butts, knees and elbows
- Drilling HKE, how to tie it all together to achieve the desired result
- Functionalizing HKE, training the tools in an alive manner against full resistance through the use of impact gear
It has three basic concepts:
3. Resolution/Termination of conflict
RAT isn't really so much a fighting technique, though, as it is an understanding of the phases of the fight. Most people enter into a fight with no plan. They just fight until someone runs away, wins, or drops. That's leaving too much up to chance. If you go into a fight with a set plan (entry, pressure, termination) your chances of success goes up greatly.
