​Why Do You Need to Learn Self Protection?

Have you ever been in a situation where you felt unsure what to do, possibly even intimidated, weak, threatened or scared?  ​

Have you ever been in fear for your own safety or for that of your loved ones?

Unfortunately, almost every one of us has been in real life scenarios in the most normal of everyday circumstances that have very quickly spiralled into a potentially violent situation.

​And sadly, most people become a victim because they were unaware of the circumstances and/or the situation they were in. Our training is designed to fix that.

​The difference with our training is a HUGE focus on Avoidance & Prevention through skills in Personal Security, Awareness, Communication and much more, obtained collectively by our instructor community using these tools in the fields in Security, Law Enforcement and Military Operations.

The fact is, without being able to control the situation, it doesn’t particularly matter what happens to you, its how you deal with it. Physically, mentally and emotionally. 

​​​RCI training differs from others because our training focuses on Functionality and Realism! 

Even when shit hits the fan all of a sudden, our goal is to have you situationally aware, confident and capable of dealing with the situation and getting home safe! No gimmicks, No Bullshit, just skills!

​​And it doesn’t matter if you're in the ‘right’ or not, and it doesn’t matter how you’ve behaved. These things can happen when you least expect them.

Maybe you’ve never had any training in self defence or in a martial art and you’re a complete beginner. Or perhaps you’ve trained in martial arts, but have realised that what you learnt in the dojo didn’t help you on the street.

All those fancy complicated moves have their place... in the DOJO!

But in reality, your opponent is not going to stand there and wait for you to finish your 27 step move.

Things are hectic, violent, chaotic and messy! 

This is why all of our SKILL BUILDERS (Drills) ​lead to a pressure test with sparring and reality based simulation training to deal with an active aggressor who is being non compliant and an all round PRICK! 

At our international seminars and events we have heard from hundreds and hundreds of people with the same story; they love their traditional martial arts but were shocked to learn that what they dedicated a major portion of their life to didn’t actually help them in the simplest of confrontations. ​

If you’ve come to this understanding after being in a fight it’s often a shock to learn that what you thought you knew wasn’t enough. That every opponent will fight back. That no one cares about your martial arts rank or lineage and that the only one that can pull your ass out of this mess is YOU! 


For the lover of traditional martial arts:

Our Raw Silat program program (details below) covers both armed and unarmed combative methods, but in the exact same methodology, aims to make all skills functional in all ranges of fighting and all scenarios, so there is a huge emphasis on sparring and training with live weapons. 

How To Become Self Reliant in Every Situation

Whether you’re a beginner or a trained martial artist, the truth is that there is a way to learn how to take your personal security into your own hands so that you can prevent, avoid and survive high risk scenarios and or confrontations.

You can take any level of knowledge and skills that you already have and turn yourself from potential victim to victor in just a matter of hours. You can develop the ability to get out of trouble using problem solving know-how, your bare hands and/or any weapon that comes to hand (traditional or improvised) and the skills that you’ve learnt.

RCI training focuses on functional skills: Create, Develop & Maintain! 

We show you how to stay sharp and ready to ensure your safety (and that of your loved ones) in a split second moment of need. And testing yourself with sparring and when you're fatigued or distracted or in unfamiliar settings can only make you more prepared! There’s nothing easy nor pretty about violence, but we show you the most logical and practical way to train for it!

The secret is to take a holistic approach to your own personal security.

RCI training was the first organization in the world to not only separate ‘traditional martial arts’ from ‘combatives’ & ‘survival’ but also the first to address RISK, THREAT & CRISIS MANAGEMENT. We make a huge point of all of our students and members applying these concepts and skills in their every day life! 

Developing instincts that have you understand your options and priorities in a chaotic, violent and or high risk situation will have you ready to get out of any kind of trouble - quickly and safely.

You’ll need to learn tried and tested techniques that have been rigorously planned and tested with thousands of students. Tools (Techniques) and drills that have been pressure tested to ensure that they can actually be called on in the heat of the moment. You will be the only person that you can trust to prevent you coming to any harm. So it's time to invest in yourself, refuse to become a victim and become a hard target! 

With access to all of our programs (listed below) you can pick and choose what you wish to focus on and how you wish to develop and it's all at your own pace! More importantly, we show you how to create, develop and maintain the tools to be in control of any situation by first being in control of yourself!

Here’s What You Get in The RCI Learning Center

All the training in the RCI Learning Center fits within three core disciplines - Survival, Combatives and Martial Arts. Many of the courses fit in more than one area and the skills you learn in one will naturally complement and enhance your training in another.


​Master risk management ​and personal security whilst developing your function fitness and ability to thrive in both urban and wilderness environments with improvisational methods covering the essentials - shelter, fire, water, food, protection & self maintenance/first aid.


If you need to deal with a threat you’ll need to rely on your combatives training and skills. This discipline will teach you Self Protection, close quarters combat and armed threat management so that you will instinctively eliminate any threat to your safety at any time.

Martial Arts

The RCI system takes your martial arts experience (from total beginner to experienced practitioner) and transforms it into your underlying street combat tool. RCI focus on teaching RAW Silat and RAW Taichi as brutally effective fighting styles with and without weapons.

What DO RCI Members say?

RAW Combat is what it says, it’s raw. But it's taught on a set of principles not techniques and the techniques allow you to react without the need for thought process. I would recommend RAW Combat to anyone looking for an organisation that gives you the tools required for self protection and survival in the modern urban world.

Stefan Thompson, Essex UK

The online learning is the shit!! Definitely a game changer that has allowed me to improve my skillset. The videos are great quality and Luke explains everything clearly. And you can schedule your own training and do it whenever you have a moment, so it is very convenient for people that are busy. Recommend it 100%!

Who are RAW Combat International and Luke Holloway?

Raw Combat International is a worldwide organization bringing together groups of security, tactical, survival and self protection professional instructors who specialize in developing education and training for both professionals and civilians in those fields.

RCI was first made famous on YouTube (now with over 90 Million views and counting on their two main channels - in English and Japanese) by the hard hitting training videos featuring RCI founder, Luke Holloway, who also went on to produce, direct and present the T.V. Show 'KEEP IT RAW" (Loaded TV ).

​Luke Holloway has became renowned for his no-nonsense approach to combative and tactical training, personal security and survival. In 2009 he began to tour the world giving courses and seminars ranging across various topics such as Personal Security, Survival, C.Q.C. (Close Quarter Combatives) and Raw Silat. He regularly works with Military, Law Enforcement and Security Professionals providing training in both armed and un-armed combatives throughout North & South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Luke has been  based in Japan for a number of years, where he also regularly works with local Law Enforcement, Military Special Forces and Security Groups providing training to professionals to assist in crisis management and Officer Safety among other things.

Luke was brought up living a lifestyle of Martial Arts, hunting and survival since a young age in Australia, which included training in as many Martial Arts styles as he could. However it wasn’t until working as a doorman and in Close Protection & Consulting that he came to deal with another level of violence as a professional on a very regular basis.

​​With the understanding of how to deal with aggressors, violence and how to survive high risk situations Luke developed his training methods based on the concept of pressure testing all ‘techniques’ and drills to see how they are applied in 'real world' situations and scenarios. Aside from being a respected figure in the Martial Arts world he has been a pioneer in developing standards of training for professionals ensuring that everything taught and trained is relevant to the end user and is functional for them at every skill level.

​Luke continues to run the RCI operations on a day to day basis whilst travelling throughout the world, especially in South East Asia, where he seeks out instructors of the highest calibre in lesser known but highly effective fighting styles so that the most effective elements can be rolled into the RCI training.

“The way Luke teaches the principles and the structure that he has devised make sense to me and I recommend Raw Combat because, unlike other styles that just take your money and teach you nothing that will help you in the real world, Raw Combat is no smoke and mirrors. It's Direct, Realistic and Effective.”

Dublin RCI Seminar participant

"Luke Holloway is amongst the best when it comes to personal protection. Luke makes you feel welcomed and wanted. His style and the way he teaches makes it easy to learn. Not only that but the material covered is much different than that you’re going to find and face in a class or Dojo. I highly recommend taking this course."

Baltimore RCI Seminar participant

“I have found Luke’s training to be extremely well put together. I highly recommend these courses to anybody, with a fighting or martial arts background, but more importantly to anyone without the years of training under their belt for a no-nonsense approach to protecting yourself and loved ones in today’s ever increasingly violent society.”

Here’s Why I want to see YOU in the RCI Learning Center

A personal note from Luke Holloway, founder of RAW Combat International and the RCI Learning Center principal instructor.

My whole life I’ve been training in martial arts and various methods of survival and shooting with the main motivation simply being to be able to look after myself and my loved ones, regardless of the situation. Its not about being paranoid, but prepared! 

It wasn’t until I had to use what I’d learnt on the job that I realised how important it is to separate classical martial arts training from functional survival training. The fact is, both are great, both have their place. But ​then it's up to each individual to be able to make things work when it counts and what I can say from experience is that the differences between the ‘dojo’ and the street are vast! 

No one cares about rank or lineage or style names. No one cares about traditional names for techniques or where they come from and no one is going to stand there and let you do your fancy move. Trust me, I learned this the hard way! To survive working on the doors we had to make training relevant to the situations that we were encountering and that was more often than not dealing with aggressive, non-compliant and multiple threat situations. Again, completely different to what you see in a traditional martial arts training environment! You don’t know what’s coming, when, where, or even sometimes who from and this is why we first look at training the senses, more specifically situation awareness and communication skills.

I guarantee you, most people haven’t had to deal with violence on a regular basis so this is not something that is covered in your average self defense class, let alone a martial arts class. 

I’m a huge believer in self development and even striving for self perfection and this is why I still train various arts including Catch Wrestling and Brazilian Jiujitsu but these are my hobbies. They are fun, they are great, but there’s nothing fun or great about a chaotic situation involving a group of drunk guys relentlessly trying to punch your head in. They’re not trying to pull guard on you or fiddle with your lapel, they will not say “hey, go easy, no striking!”, and most of all, they wont even give you a chance to think, let alone warm up! So again, the priorities are simply different and this is why my training has become some of the most sought after in the world as it is based on logic and function, not theories and rules. 

I started the online learning center in 2009 and I am humbled by the fact that we have had thousands of members sign up and the large number who​'ve stayed the entire time. I have made this my life’s work - to continuously develop each program and the drills within along with constant improvements in quality.​ 

In 2017 we started to re-film many things with ​in 4K to ensure that we can get as many ‘easy to read’ views of the fundamental drills as possible. You will also see that there are many things that people talk about but never do, like not only pressure test skills in sparring and the like, but also cutting testing with meat and various other objects to show the effectiveness and or lack of effectiveness in techniques. 

This is something I am truly proud of and forever grateful to my staff and team for their support in our continued work. See you online ! 

Train Hard, Fight Easy! 

Keep it Raw !
