CRAZY MONKEY

DEFENSE

WHAT IS CRAZY MONKEY DEFENSE?

Born in the heart of Johannesburg, one of the world's most challenging urban landscapes, Coach Rodney King developed Crazy Monkey Defense, an innovative modern martial arts system built on real-world experience of surviving interpersonal violence. As a head doorman in his 20s at some of South Africa's toughest nightclubs, Rodney witnessed the raw, unpredictable nature of street confrontations. This first-hand exposure to chaos and danger led to a sobering realization: real fights are nothing like their choreographed Hollywood counterparts or traditional dojo teachings. They are messy, frantic, and entirely unscripted.

Crazy Monkey Defense Stands Apart in its Focus on Defense

In addition, Rodney observed that in the heat of a skirmish, the ability to effectively shield against an onslaught could dramatically turn the tide in one's favour. This insight laid the foundation for a program that balances offensive prowess with robust defensive strategies, preparing practitioners to weather any storm of strikes.
 

Rodney's extensive street experience, encompassing over 300 personal encounters, revealed a surprising truth: boxing, not fancy moves or forbidden techniques, dominated in real-life fights. This led to the creation of Crazy Monkey Defense, a striking-based system grounded in practicality and effectiveness.
