Fear Control Workshop

Here's some notes from the FCW and some footage from the day - the full download is available via the main site

1. Need to control fear rather than be controlled by it
2. Method – innoculation rather than supression / de-sensitisation
3. Establishing fear hierarachy
4. Triune brain theory, agression / predator / human
5. Controlling tension through breathing
6. Basic breath hold and restoration
7. Restoration under discomfort
8. The role of the amygdala / hippocampus
9. The physiology of fear
10. Re-programming the brain, establishing a mindset
11. Using the breath to unlock freeze response
12. Pain management through breathing
13. Basic falls
14. Basic strike management
15. Blindfold work
16. Restoration via breathing and massage

17. Overall principle – to establish a mindeset which can respond to fear / stress in a rational way, without undue tension and panic. It’s not about “toughing things out”, it’s about working through a series of drills and exercises of different intensity in order to undergo an experience you can learn from. As there were new people present, intensity was kept average to low, but I hope that everyone gained something from the experience. Thanks everyone who took part in such good spirit
