Rapid Assault Tactics or "The R.A.T." System can best be described as a way of bringing forth the most violence of action, using the most barbaric weapons, to effectively defend ones' life in the most efficient and safest manner possible. The RAT enables average men and women to quickly defend themselves against a larger aggressor benton your destruction. This system of combat has been taught to members of the US Navy Seals, D.E.A., Police, Federal Air Marshals, F.B.I., and other elite units whose lives are in danger in many instances.
The RAT System is about survival and self-preservation, and is ideal when a situation has escalated where your life is threatened and the only option is to use the most lethal tools to preserve your life. The central core of this program involves knowing how and when to use head butts, knees and elbows (HKE). RAT isn't really so much a fighting technique, though, as it is an understanding of the phases of the fight. Most people enter into a fight with no plan. They just fight until someone runs away, wins, or drops. That's leaving too much up to chance. If you go into a fight with a set plan (entry, pressure, termination) your chances of success goes up greatly.
