What Our Students Say

“I’m very happy to be training with ICS. Peter’s syllabus is well structured, extremely practical has an excellent focus on applying appropriate actions to real life scenarios.

As an instructor he is personable and very approachable, consistently demonstrating an enthusiastic, hands-on attitude which is reflective of his commitment to his students. I’ve trained with several other organisations and can honestly say that I’m more motivated and have made better progress with Peter than I have with those in the past.”

Justin Haining
Manager product development,Tatts pokies

“Peter Sciarra is an internationally recognised martial arts instructor teaching internationally recognised concepts. Having trained under Peter’s Integrated Combat System (ICS) for the past five years, the benefits I have received are numerous and include; increased strength, fitness, discipline and confidence.

More importantly however, the fighting style Peter teaches is real, real in the sense that it works. ICS is not concerned with ‘flashy’ moves that are ultimately ineffective. Rather, by combing the best techniques from almost every martial arts discipline, ICS is efficient and  can be employed in any situation”

Mike Von Tauchek
Lawyer

“After training in martial arts for a decade it is refreshing to find a trainer, who is open minded and knowledgeable within his field. Someone who isn’t afraid to step outside the box and attend seminars and cross train in order to teach us students new or more effective techniques.

This says a lot about Peter and his system as it is constantly evolving and I can honestly say I get excited every time I walk through the doors and trek upstairs to train with Peter and his boys.

The training environment is clean and well kept, not to mention the students are friendly, approachable and engaging, and no egos are present in this school. This would be an accurate reflection of how Peter Sciarra conducts himself amongst us students, and without a doubt I have never met a trainer quite like him.

If you want to learn self defence that is not only effective, affordable and fun to learn then I suggest you take a visit to ICS and speak to Peter Sciarra about becoming a member. Trust me on this one!”

 

Simon Sultana
Personal Trainer

“Before I started training in the ICS self defence system I had no martial arts experience. I have found the system Peter Sciarra teaches to be intuitive to learn and does not require unrealistic dexterity, flexibility or strength.

I have learned useful techniques from day 1 in an environment that is easy going, but focused on proficiency in the skills relevant to each module that Peter teaches.

Skills are taught, or reinforced, and related to practical street based scenarios in each lesson.”

John Hall
General Manager

“Having worked in the security industry for over 20 years,and trained in many different Martial Art systems.

I can honestly say that ICS training has provided me with the most realistic and easy to learn defensive tactics. Instructor Peter Sciarra is a man who certainly knows his trade.”

Nev Shoeman
Security officer, martial arts veteran 

“Military, law enforcement or protective agents; Book ICS as soon as possible. As a certified instructor in MACP and Gracie GST civilian market training often falls short.

Often I go to the Dojo, train go home to adapt the moves. Not with ICS ! Every technique was adaptable for military and Law enforcement purposes.

I highly recommend ICS training.”
