Licensed CMD CORE Trainers
Below you will find a list of Crazy Monkey Defense CORE Trainers. Only people listed below are licensed to teach the Crazy Monkey CORE System. Each Trainer is identified by a Glove Ranking. The Glove Ranking identifies both the level of competency we feel a trainer has in teaching a specific aspect of the CORE CMD program, as well as their personal level of skill. For more information on this, take a look at the CRAZY MONKEY’S CORE EVALUATION STRUCTURE section.
In addition some Trainers have qualified beyond Crazy Monkey Defense’s CORE base. These additional specializations are identified by abbreviations below their names. Trainers are only allowed to teach the programs they have qualified for.
PLEASE NOTE: not all CMD CORE Trainers have qualified in programs beyond the CORE program. Check with the individual Trainer for their further qualifications in either CIA and or the EDGE program (CIA and EDGE are also standalone programs. It is possible to qualify in them individually).
CRAZY MONKEY CORE SYSTEM
This is our combat athletic base. The CORE encompasses the necessary skill sets to develop a dynamic, functional modern martial arts game. The main focus of the CORE is the striking game, with an emphasis on street boxing – with the end goal of preparing a person to engage in live sparring (or applying those combat athletic base skills in self-preservation). The CORE program is identified by our Glove Ranking program.
COMBAT INTELLIGENT ATHLETE PROGRAM
The Combat Intelligent Athlete Program extends the CORE CMD program with a specific and intense focus on self-preservation. Each of the CORE games in CMD have an accompanying self-preservation extension. In the CIA specialization we focus on understanding the pre-fight, deploying in-fight dynamics (here we draw from CMD’s CORE athletic base), understanding the predatory mindset, mass attack and more.
EDGE DEFENSE PROGRAM
EDGE is our empty hand versus the blade program.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING CHANGES TO THE TRAINERS PROGRAM FROM 2016In 2016 we changed the trainers structure of the Crazy Monkey Defense CORE program, along with our overall curriculum. We also retired all previous trainer designations. This was done not only to simplify and streamline the trainer structure, but to place a premium emphasis on personal game performance. All other trainer designations and or names are no longer valid. Only Trainers with Glove Rankings below are recognized, and all Trainers have been (or in the process off being) reassessed for their current Trainer Glove ranking.
