During that time he was introduced to many different martial art forms such as Tomiki Aikido, Largo Mano Escrima, Jujitsu, Kobudo (weaponry systems originating on the island of Okinawa) and Eastern Philosophy. After an introduction to these other martial arts, Brad decided to pursue the Jujitsu path enrolling in the Phan-ku Ryu Jujitsu Institute located in Corpus Christi, TX under the late Lt. Col Mark A. Miles. After he graduated from college Brad traveled and trained at many schools around the country. However, after the events of 9/11, the traveling slowed down, but he was able to join the Friendswood Judo and Jujitsu Academy under Sensei Richard Porro located in Friendswood, TX. During this time Brad was able to learn more about Judo and how to apply these techniques in competition and to self defense. In 2008, he moved to Champion Martial Arts located in Pasadena, TX to formalize his study of Judo under Sensei Buck Snider. During this time he also helped open FUSION FIGHT CO. with Thom Cart where he heads the Adult and Youth Judo programs. Since 1986, Brad Bain was able to acheive rank in several martial arts systems.

    • Scenarios Exercise
    • Environmental Safety Tips
    • Be aware of your surroundings.Be aware of your surroundings. – When in questionable areas (such as night or dark places) stay in a group of people. – Avoid shortcuts through alleys or other secluded areas and plan ahead. – Park in well lit areas at night or when you know you will return to you car after dark. – Do not walk with headphones, talking on the phone or other sensory impairing device when inquestionable areas. – Walk with confidence and be observant. People who look scared or timid are more likely to get attacked. Have keys ready so you can quickly open your car, get in and lock the door. – Let someone know where you are going, when you are leaving & when you should arrive. – Practice basic self defense until it is habit. – If confronted, remain calm, do not be aggressive or confrontational. – If confronted, comply with demands of robbery or theft, up to the point of physical or sexual abuse. Most thieves don’t want to make a scene or hurt you, they only want valuables. – If you yell for help say “Fire” or “Call 911”. Bystanders are more likely to come investigate things like a fire or respond to specific directions than to respond to “help”. Continue to make a lot of noise, screaming and yelling. Prolonged disturbance is more likely to raise awareness than a single yell. – If you are confronted and have time, call 911 on your cell phone. Even if you drop it keep yelling location information and what is happening as the operator may still hear. Most cell phone locations can be traced if time is allowed. – NEVER get in a car or leave a public place with an assailant. Most victims’ chance of survival is greatly reduced if they leave the scene of the original assault with the attacker Self defense in street situations is all about evasion. The escapes and strikes learned latter are only  used for the purpose of evading and getting away to safety. Think only of escape and NOT of trying  to stay and subdue the attacker. The longer you are exposed to the attach the more probable it is that you will be hurt. Combatives Evasion Steps Vital Targets Weapons to targets Grab Escapes Getting up safely
