The new DNA Fight Science Program devised by Andy Norman, and Defence Lab, is an “EVOLVED” Combat System that has in truth been evolving continuously over the past 30 years; a consequence of real-life “experiences”, pressure testing, research and investigation, and ultimately trying to answer that never ending question: “DOES IT REALLY WORK?”
The DNA system is a reflection of Andy’s very own provocative life journey so far. Andy has an awesome training pedigree, and a massively colourful history, thus Defence Lab will continue to be a reflection of one of today’s great pioneers of modern urban martial art training methodologies.
“I have always been fascinated with the study of the human; DNA clearly been a “secret” code of our genetic makeup.
I have, right from the very beginning of my studies, been captivated with the process of defence in attack; how to make a defence mechanism the most brutal and ballistic form of self-defence, as luck would have it, DNA can also be seen as an acronym for defence ‘in’ attack… so that’s how the DNA fight science name came about."
“DNA – Defence in attack; perfectly describes what we do, and what I have been doing all my life”
Great things are spawned from what many consider to be crazy, until it becomes the “NORM”…
The International motto for Defence Lab is the result of a conversation between Andy Norman and Constantine Theoharis ("Doc Theo") at the founding of the Defence Lab in 2012 in North America: " We study violence so as to prevent it, escape it, and if all else fails, utilize it ourselves to survive."
