hard |härd|

not easily broken, bent or pierced; tough


ready |ˈredē|

in a suitable state for an activity, action or situation


The term “hard ready” may not conform to traditional grammar rules. Still, it’s a unique compound word, a single adjective, that we use to describe someone who is at the pinnacle of readiness and, more significantly, willingness. This unique term piques curiosity and invites further exploration.


A Hard Ready® person has been exposed to difficult situations that may have been thought impossible, either through life experiences or harsh training. A Hard Ready® person is not only able (as most of us are) to tackle life’s most taxing conflicts but is also willing to do so.


What began as a 12-week program expanded into the planet’s biggest and best collaborative self-defense training weekend. This year, Hard Ready® IX will be a throwback to the genesis of the program and the event. Participants will receive tremendous self-defense, fighting, and martial arts training from some of the best coaches in the world and be challenged physically and emotionally throughout the weekend.


Whether this will be your first Hard Ready® training weekend or your ninth, you are destined to leave more physically and emotionally capable than you arrived.


Life is Hard. Ready is relative.®


Be Hard Ready®.


This 3 day event will be taught by a diverse group of instructors who understand the value of training for themselves and their students. It aims to give a full picture of the fighting puzzle from standing to the ground and all the transitions in between.
