LEVEL 1 ONE - KEIBO - BROWN BELT
This First level teaches the art of the Keibo, which is a close quarter self defence pain compliance weapon, usually made of wood, high density plastic or metal, measuring at about 30cm in length and 1.5cm in diameter. But within training its measurement is based on the length of each individuals forearm.
Just like the Rope, the Keibo is trained due to its accessibility and functionality, as it is a discrete, unassuming and convenient weapon to carry and use without causing permanent injury. It is a highly effective weapon that does not require the same amount of tedious training as the Rope or Belt, but still requires its own amount of commitment to master it beyond its usual common application.
Being a Close Quarter Combat weapon, its usage is highly effective in tight situations where room is minimal or when an attacker is up too close and personal. Its usage ranges from attacking bony fleshy areas, nerve endings, pressure points, large muscle mass and vulnerable areas. As well as gaining leverage, locking and using it as a defensive shield where applicable.
One of the advantages of training the Keibo is that when it is not available, it equips individuals with the skill and ability to improvise with everyday items that are Keibo-like - toothbrush, pens, torch, sticks or any item shaped in the same and/or similar manner.
Over all the Keibo provides simple yet highly affective tactics that can be learned by anyone regardless of size, age or strength. With the proper training it will dramatically increase the odds of defending yourself and/or loved ones from serious life threatening situations.
