Re: Adrenaline-based training?

Long time lurker here. I recall reading a thread years and years ago about people in the US who offered adrenaline-based training -- they put you in high stress situations, so you'd start getting tunnel vision, loss of fine motor control, etc, and teach you how to deal with it. Does anybody here have recommendations for anyone running this sort of training?

It doesn't necessarily have to be super martially-oriented. Looking back at my life, I've made some of my biggest mistakes/done some very dumb things when adrenaline kicked in and all my reasoning ability seemed to go out the window. None of those situations were outright fights - some were situations at work, others in personal relationships. I'd love to learn to handle myself better when it happens.

Check out Peyton Quinn and Rocky Mountain Combat Applications Training He has really pioneered this type of training and has the highly trained instructors and the equipment (important) it takes to do it properly.

Also, check out his book:
Real Fighting: Adrenaline Stress Conditioning Through Scenario-Based Training

The book is a must read for any serious martial artist I think...
