Rodney survived government housing growing up (similar to the Projects in the USA), the schoolyard bullies, and neighbourhood gangs. After the military, he spent several years as the head doorman outside of some of the roughest nightclubs in Johannesburg, surviving 100’s of street fights. With his real world experience in surviving interpersonal violence – he codified his knowledge into an unstoppable modern martial arts system.

We believe true ‘self-defense’ is only possible if it is built upon an athletic base. This is why we focus so much of our training on sparring, and testing our skills against uncooperative opponents (not the demo bad guy who throws one punch, and then holds it out there). It is seldom that anyone will win a fight with one punch, and never will someone let you just go ‘blitz’ on them without retaliating (it may look cool on YouTube, but that’s not the reality of fights). The truth is, while you are applying your ‘self-defense’ skills, the bad guy will continue to fight back. With this in mind, in Crazy Monkey we train specifically for an opponent who is faster than us, stronger than us, and who has no intention of quitting.

The truth is, most people teaching self-defense don’t truly understand what it means, what it will look like, and what is required to survive interpersonal violence. Fights are untidy, chaotic, and unpredictable. This is why Crazy Monkey is a primarily striking based program, built off a strong foundation in western boxing – approaches that have been proven for thousands of years to allow a person to manage the chaos of the fight effectively.

This approach of striking for the street, and applying a tactical approach to range management, has made Crazy Monkey one of the most formidable self-preservation programs in existence today. Added to this, we focus on developing the necessary mental game skills needed to win when it matters most.

Crazy Monkey has been designed for, and tested not only on the streets, but on the battlefield. The result: a robust, functional, dynamic empty hand combatives system – that focuses on high percentage moves, rather than aesthetics.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1485409075949{background-color: #efefef !important;}”]“As the head trainer for one of the US Army Special Forces Groups I have always looked for functional systems that either condition operators and instill the warrior spirit and combat related attributes or those that have direct technical application to the mission sets needed ‘down range’. To find a system that has both is a rare find and something that I immediately recognized in the Crazy Monkey Defense’s (CMD) Combat Intelligent Soldier (CIS) Program as something we NEEDED to add to our foundation of base skills.

Rodney’s program is to standing what BJJ is to the ground- simple, functional, effective, non attribute based – and allows for easy modification and transference of skills to other battlefield specific skill sets. This modularity and adaptiveness is the genius of the system.I have immediately incorporated Rodney’s program into our program here in Iraq and plan on bringing Rodney to our Group back in the States in order to further integrate CIS into what we do.”

Martial arts without a philosophy is just violence. In Crazy Monkey we believe in the potency of combining innovative physical technique with warrior wisdom, with one single minded mission; helping our clients prepare for the martial arts of everyday life.

We understand the importance of a warrior’s self-discipline. Whilst we will help you achieve your goals in fitness, health and self defense, our unique philosophy will give you the tools to handle your life and workplace conflicts more skilfully by connecting mindfully to your inner warrior spirit. In this way, not only will you learn to defend yourself, but equally build inner and outer strength.

Whilst Crazy Monkey has been taught to world class athletes, law enforcement and special force military operators – crucially what makes the program stand out, is that it is a REAL world modern martial art experience, that is accessible, and easily learned by all. The entire program has been designed to allow anyone to develop real martial skill in less than 2-hours a week, but crucially, what they learn in those couple of hours, will equally aid them in life – in other words the 23-hours of each day thy are not training Crazy Monkey with us.

We pride ourselves on having a Zero Meathead policy in all our schools, and we strongly believe that true martial performance arises when the environment one trains in is personally challenging, but not hyper-competitive, where measurement of success, is only in being better than you were yesterday.

Bottom line, we coach our clients to use their embodied intelligence so that they can survive hostile mind-sets, and are physically and mentally resilient to fight against all of life’s challenges.

The ideal Crazy Monkey client can be summarized as someone who,

  • Enjoys personal challenge, and seeks to achieve a level of success through that challenge, with the end goal leading to personal mastery.
  • A person who seeks self-preservation confidence, knowing that they can successfully defend themselves and those they love.
  • Appreciates the importance of keeping in shape, and building personal strength.
  • Who loves to learn effective martial art skills in a non-ego, zero meathead environment.

Performance without ego, challenge without competition
