The definition of the term Reality-Based
Training and survival skills based on modern conflict situations that the practitioner is likely to encounter in their environment (their "reality").
We established D.G.C. to help the every day individual who may never compete in a tournament or competition learn to defend themselves with a practical and effective martial art. D.G.C. is not a MARTIAL ART as known in the Time-Honored "TRADTIONAL" way like Tae-Kwon-Do , Kung-Fu, etc. D.G.C. teaches a fighting system which emphases instinctive movements, practical techniques, realistic training scenarios.
"Cry in the Dojo, Laugh on the Battlefield"
If you have a sincere desire to defend yourself in a real situation, you'll have to sacrifice your ego, put aside the pride we hold so dear, and present yourself to someone who will teach and test you for the street. Look for someone who is willing to [at the very least] separate the art from the application. The art of the technique is not in how pretty the lines or circles are. The art is in the free use of the technique. The art is the science and psychology of aggression and physics, of leverage and kinetics, not the mysticism in the so-called advanced levels.
An instructor who never gets dirty and avoids fighting you because he's afraid to hurt you is useless. The fact is many instructors are often just scared of being humiliated in front of a full class of "paying" students. Any good instructor knows, they can always learn more, even from a student. A truly skilled martial artist never stands in front of another man expecting to learn nothing. "The investment in loss," (as Chen Man Ching speaks of) means that a loss is not a failure if you walk away from it with something besides the bruises. Without loss there are no skills, no learning, and no advancement.
