Such survival must be achieved without weaponry or any form of logistical back-up. During such encounters, tunnel vision occurs and it is difficult, if not impossible, to perform complex or fine motor movements. The key to survival in any hostile environment involving close quarter combat is to have a system that is simple, yet brutally effective.

A system that provides for the maximum chance of success, with a minimal use of physical and mental energy. There is a need for a close quarter combat system that is both instinctive and natural. Specifically a system that can be used to defeat every conceivable form of attack from either single or multiple assailants. The Urwin Combat System meets these needs.
