The Keysi fighting method has been popularized through movies like Batman Begins. It is also a fighting style that is not without controversy. However, as a method of fighting and self-defense, it remains intriguing.
Some debate whether or not Keysi is a true style of martial arts. Regardless of that opinion, it’s still a unique fighting style. That fact is particularly emphasized in terms of the Keysi fighting method and the hand method.
Background and information
The Keysi fighting method has become particularly popular in recent years. The way the style relates only to kicking and punching goes to point out just how unique this fighting style really is. Studying the Keysi fighting method will also mean learning about hand weapons. This is one of the ways that this method serves to set itself apart from other fighting styles and methods.
Keysi understands that certain fighting styles minimize weapons training to a certain degree. These methods often employ a great deal of conditioning training, which promotes the idea that an individual can take a little punishment, endure said punishment, and then respond with her own level of strength. Obviously, with weapons, the idea of conditioning training is not very realistic. No one should have to learn how to defend themselves against knives or swords, obviously.
This is where the hand weapons component of Keysi training becomes so interesting. Those who train with this method of fighting will use a variety of hand weapons, in the course of their introduction and continued training with the Keysi method. These weapons may include clubs, knives, swords, and other items that may fall under the label of handguns.
In a general sense, the Keysi method works to understand and respond to energy and movement. This fact appears very strongly in the hand weapons used by those who study Keysi.
Many fighting styles naturally teach you to read and respond to your opponent’s movement. However, not all fighting/defending styles out there take sidearms into account. Keysi strives to be different, working with a wide range of handguns. Both attack and defense are practiced, regardless of the specific sidearm.
The bottom line
The Keysi fighting method is not without its critics. However, the benefits of this relatively modern style are such that it is worth at least a serious look, for those looking to adopt a comprehensive form of self-defense.
