Reality Combat System self defense is the fastest growing form of reality-based self-defense classes in the world. Whether is is self defense for women or self defense classes in general.  RCS takes the same techniques taught to military and law enforcement personnel worldwide and simplifies the lessons for civilians to learn


RCS offers you an easy-to-learn yet highly effective self-defense system that emphasizes instinctive movements, practical techniques, and realistic training scenarios.

The Special Warfare Branches of the United States Military, specifically U.S. Naval Special Warfare Department, commissioned several entities to conduct research into the combat sciences.  Experts with combat experience from the fields of military, law enforcement, experts from many traditional and non-traditional arts of self-defense including experts from the medical and psychological disciplines provided valuable input.  The most proven theories and updated techniques of combat were chosen   to train our country’s elite military units and subsequently our nation’s elite law enforcement personnel.  Hwarang-Do, Krav Maga, Muay Thai, and Jujitsu are just some of the few disciplines accepted to have real-world combat attributes.  Several certified instructors have branched out to now teach these techniques to the private sector.  One such instructor is Mr. Carlos C. Gomez of Southern California.  Mr. Gomez introduced the system under the name of REALITY COMBAT SYSTEM (RCS) in order to include newly evolved principles to the system.

Experts from “Combat Survival Organization” as well as from Krav Maga organizations consider the techniques learned through RCS as the most evolved and effective self defense system in the world.  RCS is engineered for the most vicious street confrontations.  RCS is practical, efficient, and prepares the practitioner for the unexpected even under pressure.  RCS is not a traditional or sport-based martial art.  There are no belts, rules or tournaments.  RCS is for staying alive.  The formalities of traditional defense systems are abandoned in favor of methodologies that value rapid and instructive learning.  

Reality Combat System is designed for practitioners who wish to learn effective reality based combat skills in a short period of time. There are no belts or uniforms and we do not practice “katas”. RCS is designed to be effective while performed by average individuals regardless of their current physical shape, and who will be in better health by the end of their training. RCS may be beneficial to anyone whom is not suffering from total body paralysis teen or older, male or female. The intention of the course is to bring real world self defense to everyday civilians that feel this kind of training is out of their reach.

The students will learn to defeat attackers, including those armed with knives, guns, bottles, baseball bats, etc… RCS is based on straightforward moves and as a complete system RCS covers all aspects of real street self defense.
