    CORE PRINCIPLES

    As a modern expression of ancient knowledge, Datu Worden’s curriculum emphasizes a principle-based approach to martial arts instruction. In this way the student is provided a unifying philosophy for the many techniques and combative drills taught in the NSI curriculum. The Datu is one of those unique instructors who can tie together vast amounts of data through a core set of concepts. These concepts, in turn, guide the student like a map through the learning process, and simultaneously, provide a foundation upon which the expressions of that learning will be constructed.

    One of the rudimentary principles taught in NSI is the ladder of escalation.This theory comprises a pecking order of four basic tactical levels of force that can be applied in close-quarters-combat.The first stage of force is empty-handed, in which the only weapons utilized are those of the natural body, such as the hands, elbows, knees, feet, and head. This stage may be expressed through pugilism or grappling, or a combination of both. This synthesis of both striking and grappling is most eloquently illustrated by the Datu’s use of “lock-flow” techniques. This is where an opponent is transitioned from interception, impact, and joint-lock to joint-lock, all the while being repeatedly struck from differing angles with various tools. Such an approach achieves total control of the foe and keeps him continuously off-balance both mentally and physically, all the while inflicting extensive damage to multiple bodily areas. 

    Connecting the systems is not a mystical path; it is merely a logical approach to stimulate solid defensive skill development through self-assessment and adaptability.It is a multi-dimensional path to exploring the inherent overlapping physical dynamics of all martial movements without being bound by cultural stylized restrictions. 

    Simply put, connecting the systems is time proven and the methodology offers realistic results.In addition to physical analysis connecting the systems assists the individual in optimizing function over flash; most stylized dynamics are striped away in an effort to develop natural reactionary defensive response movements.Structurally movement is movement; it is the angle, target, timing, commitment and intention that clarify results.
