The Conception of E.V.E
E.V.E. “Eradicate Volatile Environments” is the base of Moon’s teachings of Black Arts Close Quarter Combat to women. It is an honour and privilege to introduce the foremost innovative training system that has yet been introduced to women of any calibre.
I am an avid believer that there is no such thing as self-defence, let alone women’s self-defence in the sense that it is taught toady. Why do we need to learn different tactics than our male counterpart? The difference with our style is contrary to contemporary martial arts, in the way that we are not into the sports applications portion, but where the results are the only objectives.
What you will learn is intended to eradicate the opposing threat. You will gain applicable techniques that have been proven to work regardless of size, gender or skill level. The class is intended for everyone to become aware of their own mind and body reactions, so that the techniques become like second skin and with time anyone can become proficient and skilled in CQC. I always like to say “Practise is the mother of all Talents and Skills”. That’s what E.V.E. is, “The mother of All Skills and Talents”, “Eradicate Volatile Environments”. This is not a training system on preventive rape crisis, but learning that you are always in control of your life, all the time – no matter who confronts you; it could be a bully, your significant other, a crazy gal pal ect.
Statics show that in order for a favourable outcome, the perpetuator approaches the environment with more knowledge of how the scenario will play out, this is the advantage they have over you. When you are the target you have a finite window of opportunity to eradicate the threat – since you were not anticipating, the only thing you could do in order to have a chance, is to close with and destroy. That’s the beauty of what we do in Black Arts Close Quarter Combat.
Moon’s martial arts philosophy is not just inherent in her dedication of studying different styles and systems of the martial arts world, but also the esoteric benefits of the internal arts.
As a public service volunteer agent for various non – profit organizations, Moon believes in the community she serves. One of Moon’s goals is to promote a women’s Close Quarter Combat Club where women are empowered, knowledge entrusting them with the tools necessary to instil confidence. Who in turn appreciate and observe the long lasting benefits of practising the Black Arts Close Quarter Combat Systems - which in turn will encompass spiritual and emotional growth.
Are you ready to take on this journey? I’ll meet you half way.
Your comrade and ally,
