GC HEADQUARTERS, ELMSFORD NY

CLASSES / SEMINARS / PRIVATE INSTRUCTION

QUESTIONS:

1. ARE YOU AN EXPERT?

 

There's Tai Chi, Bagua, Xing Yi, Aikido, JKD and many other internal systems BUT in how many martial arts do you actually get a chance to be trained by the real, living creator of that martial art?

 

Called by many "The most unique self-defense system in the world," Guided Chaos continues to be taught by its creator, John Perkins, 4 days a week in Elmsford NY.

 

2. ARE YOU A BEGINNER?

 

Train in a SAFE, friendly, fun and relaxed environment that bears no resemblance to a militarized boot camp! Self-defense is deadly serious but the best methods for learning it don't include rigid, regimented or "sportive" competition.

PARKING AT 8 VREELAND:
Please do not park directly in front of the building in the 8 Vreeland lot on WEEKDAYS before 7:20pm. CrossFit Valkyrie is our landlord and they have first preference on parking rights. You can park anywhere you want on WEEKNIGHTS after 7:20pm and WEEKENDS, except in front of the main door. Please do not for any reason park in front of the door.  This means keeping the space clear all the way from the curb to the door at all times.

"This school offers a unique, effective and fun martial art with more weekend hours for adults to train than almost any martial arts school in Westchester or Manhattan. You can practically attend a mini-seminar every weekend. Or just drop in for a one hour class as your schedule allows (weekdays and/or weekends) - it is a flexible environment.

 

The instructors coauthored the book “Attack Proof” and have a history of teaching people of various ages and physical abilities to defend themselves and avoid dangerous situations in the shortest time possible. They teach only what is practical and avoid techniques that look good, but can’t be utilized under chaotic conditions. That may sound like common sense, but it is rare because many martial artists get distracted by learning endless variations on flashy moves that look cool, but are of questionable practical value- you won’t find those here.

 

This is a great group of people teaching/learning a great art. What they teach is immediately useful, but the principals can be further developed over a lifetime. We are very lucky to have this school in Westchester."

"This is life changing!

 

This art is everything you always wanted to know to survive.

 

Realistic and straight to the point!"


Mike McNulty

"Guided Chaos was created by John Perkins, who, as a law enforcement officer, crime scene expert and unsanctioned pit fighter, combined his involvement in over 100 deadly fights with his lifetime of study of different martial arts styles.

 

The result is a fighting system that is exceptionally effective in real-world situations because every move has its basis in subduing a real opponent or opponents, and not in following a stylized form, kata, or scripted attack. I learned more about defending myself in my first month with Guided Chaos than I had in my many years of training with any other style."


Dave Teich

"This is the stuff you want to know for that moment you hope you never have. I've read about, observed, and analyzed a lot of different "styles" in the hope of finding the real deal when it comes to self-defense. Well I found it in Guided Chaos. No sport, no trophies, no BS. This is the real deal!!

And Elmsford is the Headquarters for this. Everything is taught here from basic combatives (WW2 style) to Contact Flow to advanced ground fighting (which is frighteningly effective and deadly) and combat "dirty" boxing with occasionally some practical weapons (stick, knife) for good measure. The Conditioning drills are taught with attention to detail and application to real fighting.

The class sizes are small at present , which makes for a lot of individual attention from Masters Lt. Col. Al Ridenhour and Matt Kovsky. Grandmaster John Perkins also shows up regularly to reinforce what the Masters have taught.

I am taking advantage of the small classes because this won't last long. I would strongly recommend that anyone interested in having a fighting chance to survive the unthinkable come check out what the Elmsford Guided Chaos Training Center has to offer. It truly is priceless."


Roberto Casanova

"From the teachers to the attitude to the style of the art itself, this is the best school I've ever attended.

At 36, I've moved often and so had a chance to sample but never master a number of styles from kung fu to tai chi, aikido, brazilian jiu-jitsu, shotokan and tae kwon do; hands down this has been the best experience. I don't feel the need to ever study another style.

In eight classes, I am now far better prepared to survive an actual life-threatening attack than I've ever been. And yet, I could easily and happily spend the next ten years studying Guided Chaos, working to master the subtleties of the art.

Also, everyone I've worked with, from Grandmaster John Perkins to Lt. Col. Al Ridenhour to Matt Kovsky, has been wildly skilled and easy to work with. A variety of styles at the instructional level has led to fast and effective learning and new personal abilities.

If you're into martial arts - especially real-life applications, this is worth every second of the time it takes to check out."


Devon White

The classes are excellent- they're very comprehensive. I feel like I've learned more in the last few weeks at the new facility than I've learned in the last 5 months at the previous location. It’s like I’m getting a private lesson every night. We get right down to business, no horsing around.


I’ve studied many different martial arts throughout my life including Krav Maga, Gracie Jiu Jitsu, and even boxing. The system of Guided Chaos created by John Perkins is like something from another planet. It takes the best components from different martial arts and combines them into one master art. There’s nothing like it. Oh yeah, it’s super fun too.


Masters Matt and Al are the main instructors and have been practicing Guided Chaos for over 20 years each- so you’re not getting a 23 year old kid telling you to do some random exercises. If you're really serious about self defense and you want to get better, you should check it out.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

 

ELMSFORD, NY classes are suspended for the time being due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Stay tuned for updates.

 

In the meantime, we advise you to follow CDC recommendations to avoid group gatherings, maintain "social distancing" (a 6+ foot 'Personal Comfort Zone' -- sound familiar?) and to "avoid close contact" -- even if you have no symptoms.

 

Since you have no way of knowing whether you've been exposed or not unless you are tested daily (with immediate results), it is wise to follow the above advice since you can still transfer infections to family members and people with underlying health conditions or above the age of 50, among whom the risk of serious disease or death is much higher.

ALL OTHER SCHOOL LOCATIONS LISTED HERE teaching Guided Chaos are advised to remain closed until there is a proven vaccine and/or widely available proven COVID-19 treatment, or, hold classes outdoors with students at least 6 feet apart while wearing masks and goggles.
