Reality based self defence systems and close quarte combat based on reality are getting more and more popular.

These systems often use abbreviations like RB (Reality Based), RBT (Reality Based Training) or RBSD (Reality Based Self Defence). It is a general term for systems focuding on simple, quickly understandable and also practically usable solutions for real life crisis situations. All skills are usually tested within scenarios and realistic simulations with a single goal - to prepare for the worst possible situations and to be able to protect ourselves or our loved ones. Jim Wagner, founder of Reality Based Personal Protection, is one of the reality based system pioneers.
