CSPS Endon has been launched! Class starts on Wednesday, 11.05.2011 for pupils and teachers of Endon High School. Our first formal class, this is going to be truly momentous – a page of history being turned! Details are on our classes page so be sure to take a look.

A Quick Update

Hey all,

Just thought I’d push around a quick update on our progress in these early days, if nothing else to reassure you all that we are actually doing something! At the moment we’re just waiting for final confirmation from our venue. The application process has been started with the BCA so we’re just waiting for that to continue really.

The Syllabus and Guide has been updated a little, and final beta versions have been issued to Sifu Paul Horrobin of PHDefence along with some of my very good friends and training partners for them to scrutinise and scribble all over. Once they’ve all got back to me I’ll properly write up version 4.0, which will be the first release candidate.

Meanwhile, I’ve been training some of the obscure stuff that I haven’t done for a while in case it comes up in class (though I’m pretty sure it won’t for a while) and making sure I’m in shape for it. I always say that as an Instructor you should try to be better, harder, stronger, faster, more accurate, more adaptable, keep going for longer and ultimately be more knowledgeable than your students. Otherwise people won’t respect your authority on the subject because, to be frank, what authority do you have over them? Practically speaking, you have to be able to show them how you want them to do something, not just describe it. Otherwise training becomes just a chat.

While I’m here, I’d just like to say thank you to everyone who’s been visiting! Just so you know, I really do appreciate your interest. If anyone has any questions, or anything you’d like me to write about in the future, or ideas for instructional videos (or other videos) that you’d like to see on our YouTube channel when we start churning out videos and things. We monitor all the comms channels, so whether you send us a message or mention us on Twitter, send us a message or comment on YouTube or email us we’ll get it.

Keep coming back for more updates, thoughts on training, etc from CSPS – soon we’ll be announcing our first class, which will be the beginning of the end for combative ignorance!

All the very best,

Josh Nixon
Founding Chief Instructor, CSPS

CSPS Online is Finally Here!

CSPS Online, meet the world. World, meet CSPS Online. I’m sure you’re going to get on wonderfully…

Hi, I’m Josh Nixon and this blog is going to be the main online face of CSPS – the Combative Self-Protection System. All the information’s living in the pages at the top, so I won’t bore you with that right now. I’m just saying hello really, and checking for any teething problems before I get going properly.

As you can see from the buttons at the top, there’s a Twitter and YouTube presence already, and I’m sure there’ll be plenty more things coming soon. I’m going to get to work on a good logo and banner image, and once some interest, classes and members spring up then we’ll probably end up with a forum too. It’s all starting here and now, and this will be the hub of all the news from the System. If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, or just want to say hello then be my guest to subscribe over to the right, follow us on Twitter, email us, subscribe on YouTube, or whatever else!

We’re based in Stoke-on-Trent, but our potential is global. There’s no knowing where we’ll end up, so keep in touch. We hope to hear from you soon!
