Allen Saucier, chief instructor for Cobalt Self-Defense Tactics & Fitness studios (CSDT), holds a black belt in Shotokan Karate, Ryu Kyu Kempo and Krav Maga. Shotokan and Ryu Kyu Kempo also provided a solid grounding in Small Circle Jujitsu, Judo, Western Wrestling and Military Fighting Techniques. Ryu Kyu Kempo built upon that base and added Kyusho Jitsu. Krav Maga built still further upon this base and added weapon disarms, no-gi jujitsu and small arms training. The cord that ties all of these arts together is Jeet Kun Do, in which there is no way to achieve a black belt but the essence of Cobalt Self-Defense Tactics & Fitness (CSDT) is Scientific Street Fighting as taught by Bruce Lee and his students: Tommy Carruthers, Terri Tom, Dave Carnell, Dan Inosanto and Ted Wong. The author is a student of Tommy Carruthers. For further training, the author trains the arts of Escrima, Kenjutsu and Wing Chun. These arts add weapons’ knowledge and further expand his close quarter combat repertoire.
