First-hand research

A lot of research projects are going on onto questions like:

How must police training be designed within the law enforcement domain?
How can self-defense training be professionalized?
What do physical exhaustion and ego depletion impact the ability to defend oneself?
How to train attention for hazards?
Why do people practise Krav Maga and Wing Chun?
Does traditional Wing Chun really exist?

In the field of self-defense, violent prevention and martial arts studies, we are researching in collaboration with international experts to following issues:

1. Professionalization of training in the field of civilian self-defense as well as in the context of law enforcement

2. Impact of aggression on the performance of the working memory

3. Heuristics and perceptual-cognitive training in self-defense

4. Why Martials Art? Motifs in Wing Chun and Krav Maga

5. The Creation of Wing Chun – A German case study
