I have never been involved in a “system” where simplicity and effectiveness were so key. I am impressed by the sole focus on realistic un-armed knife defense, taking in all manner of possible aggression from an assailant. The Red Zone system is one of those rare methods that is applicable to current street crime, and its immediate application can be easily learned and taught. Jerry has done an excellent job…so much so that I have adopted his principle in my teaching.
