drills and free sparring.

PDS as explained by Master Mike Moses...
Defense System (PDS) is designed to give students a challenging workout
including cardiovascular and strength building techniques while
utilizing the skills and techniques used by mixed martial artists.
Referred to as "Mixed Martial Arts for the Street", the PDS
program incorporates seven areas of focus including upper body strikes,
defense to upper body strikes, lower body strikes, defense to lower
body strikes, self-defense grappling, street applications and weapons
Most martial arts systems teach and train in a traditional
way that has been carried on throughout the centuries. A lot of
the Hollywood-style punches and kicks will never work in a real life
situation. This is great if the student wants to carry on the art
as a tradition or wants to compete in a tournament or controlled
environment, however it becomes useless in a real life situation.
PDS trains students for all areas of real confrontation, making
it the most functional martial arts system available."
