Developed by Jeet Kune Do & Jiu Jitsu Experts
For ICE Urban Combat innovators and brothers Brandon and Jared Schmelter, martial arts is simply a way of life. Rigorously trained from a young age under martial arts masters, including Bruce Lee protégés Jerry Poteet and Pat Strong, the brothers have worked hard to become experts themselves in a variety of martial arts and self-defense disciplines. Thanks to their father (Bobby D.) starting them in the arts at such young ages, together the brothers have over 70 years of martial arts training in multiple disciplines including Aiki-Ju-Jitsu, Escrima weapons training, and most importantly, the deadly art of Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do.
ICE Urban Combat is a culmination of the brothers’ years of training, learning and fighting in the world’s most lethal disciplines. It’s not Karate or Kung Fu. It’s not wrestling or Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. It’s not cage fighting or MMA. And most of all, it’s not a game. Instead, it strips away ineffective sport and tradition to create a new, modern fighting system that can be used by anyone to destroy the bad guys in a real-world violent altercation or street fight.
Drawing heavily on Jeet Kune Do and Jiu Jitsu, the ICE Urban Combat system is designed for one purpose only: real, life-saving, street combat preparation. It’s violent, it’s raw and it’s no rules. It’s the science of street fighting.
Tried, Tested & Always Ahead of the Rest
In the late nineties, the Schmelters began teaching their unique version of street fighting, delivering private and group training sessions at universities, law enforcement organizations and among security professionals across the country. It was then that ICE Urban Combat was born.
In 2001, the brothers brought their fighting system home to their exclusive family facility in Los Angeles, California, where they train and teach with their father, acclaimed martial arts author and instructor, Bobby Schmelter.
As learning, teaching and testing grounds, the teaching facility and regional training programs have allowed the brothers to perfect the ICE Urban Combat system, resulting in the most effective and easy to learn street combat system ever.
This system has given thousands of individuals the skills and confidence they need to shut down would-be attackers and feel safe on the streets.
It’s been more than 25 years, and the Schmelters continue to train, learn, discover and evolve new concepts and techniques into the ICE Urban Combat system. “Walk it like you talk it” has become a motto to live by. Too many so-called “masters” can’t fight their way out of a paper bag. To be able to teach effectively, say the Schmelters, first, you must DO.
What does that mean for you? Instructors at the top of their industry and tested techniques that really work. Bottom line is this, if you want the most efficient fighting system in the world, you’ve come to the right place. Actually, you have come to the only place. And it’s all online for the first time ever.
