“A Responsible Warrior Mind”
We explore and guide students through their values and belief systems that need to be in place in order to act sensibly when faced with a challenge to their safety.
“You need to know what you are prepared to do to defend yourself, when you are prepared to take these actions and also understand the consequences of your actions and or inaction.”

“Strife Eager Battle Glad”
To be prepared for the challenge of defending yourself requires a constructive approach to training, balancing hard work, relevant skills and aspects of safety in a challenging training environment.
“Train hard, Fight easy”

Warriors “die in the gaps”
MDW Training focuses on facing attackers in real-time, not only when things are going according to plan but also for when they go wrong.

The MDW training methodology provides a framework to effectively navigate the chaos of combat. It’s important to understand the parameters and context of challenges we face in combat to improve the probability of success. We pride ourselves as solution finders in an ever-evolving chaotic.




“Good combat skills are universal,” some are timeless, many are revamped from existing ideas, lost skills are rediscovered or re-developed because of modern challenges, mandates and technology.

MDW attracts Instructors and practitioners (many leaders in their field of expertise) from a broad range of martial arts and or firearm related backgrounds that have selected the MDW methodology of problem solving and skill transfer methods to compliment and grow their existing skills.
