MAR­TIAL ARTIST, COMBATIVES SYS­TEM HON­ORED

Black Belt - - EDITOR'S NOTE -

Thomas ieBrun has been pro­moted to ninth dan and LeBrun’s Amer­i­can Combatives has been cer­ti­fied as a “2Nst cen­tury modern mar­tial art” by Ron Van Clief, Glenn merry and hevin jc­drathK ieBrun de­scribes his sys­tem as a hy­brid com­posed of con­cepts that will help prac­ti­tion­ers learn real-world ap­pli­ca­tions of tech­niques de­rived from a num­ber of fight­ing dis­ci­plines. The goal, he says, is to bridge the gap be­tween pre­ar­ranged prac­tice and real com­batK

LeBrun notes that street fight­ing dif­fers greatly from sim­u­lated at­tacks in a con­trolled en­vi­ron­ment, and he’s con­fi­dent that his cre­ation is a proven way to make the tran­si­tion. To that end, LeBrun’s Amer­i­can Combatives also teaches fear man­age­ment and forces stu­dents to demon­strate pro­fi­ciency in un­chore­ographed self-de­fense in­ter­ac­tions.

The mar­tial arts jour­ney that brought LeBrun to this point in his ca­reer be­gan 44 years agoI when he set out to learn how to de­fend him­self un­der any cir­cum­stancesK qhat mis­sion led him to study a va­ri­ety of arts and dis­ci­plines and to find em­ploy­ment in the se­cu­rity field pro­tect­ing celebri­ties and cor­po­rate clientsI in­clud­ing Bill dates and thit­ney eous­tonK

In the decades that fol­lowed, LeBrun trav­eled to 45 coun­tries to con­duct pro­tec­tive op­er­a­tionsK ee also en­gaged in course­work in ex­ec­u­tive pro­tec­tionI anti-ter­ror­ism and mar­itime se­cu­rity. He’s con­cen­trated on per­sonal com­bat as well as defensive tac­tics de­signed to pro­tect a third party. Lebrun’s Amer­i­can Combatives is his way to pass his knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence on to all who need sim­i­lar skills in their per­sonal or pro­fes­sional livesK
