Welcome to C2: Core Combatives

Core Combatives (C2) presents a comprehensive concept/method/system as a vehicle to provide a problem-centric approach that delivers genuinely innovative, completely adaptable, and highly effective results within the complete spectrum of personal violent conflict and the human combat environment.

Versatile and progressive…cycling the essential elements of awareness, assessment and action in order to facilitate the pragmatic management of possible and proven personal threat, potential hostile contact, and interpersonal combat engagements.

For the concerned citizen…Multi-discipline functionality, prioritising a strict and purely utilitarian ‘context specific’ focus…stressing human ergonomics, fundamental elegance, and direct efficiency within objective and circumstantial necessities.

For the active professional…Cross-platform commonality and seamless transitions from technique, to tool, to tactic, to team…optimised to fully integrate with existing operational procedures for the individual operator and small unit role-requirements.

Inspired by…Designed with…Developed for…Reality. Your Reality.

Defined, refined, evolved…by actual experience, known probabilities, and proven dynamics…built upon a solid foundation:  the essential need to operate with default reliability and tangible options under sudden intense stress, a marked force disparity, and presumed situational deficit.

Real world…Real time…Real problems…Real perspective…Real solutions.


The C2 Foundation Instructor Programme has been carefully revised to make it more accessible, to both UK and overseas based candidates.  It is a highly detailed and progressive approach, consisting of 80 hours of direct tuition and assessment, combined with several months of individual skill development.  You do not simply ‘train to the test’ and it is not a case of getting candidates certified as soon as possible.  Click here for full details.
