ANDY NORMAN

The Founder of Defence Lab and DNA Fight Science

A little about me!

Over the years I have become notorious for many things; namely my maverick attitude towards, well, pretty much everything really.

Most people live inside the framework of what they consider to be normality, but without those who can, and do live outside this framework of security, many of the great inventions, advancements and spectacular technologies created throughout history would simply have never been!..

So great things are spawned from what many consider to be crazy, until it becomes the “norm”…

What inspired the naming of the new DNA Fight Science?

Well as scientists spent years and years decrypting the DNA code, I have, and continue to try and decrypt the chaos code.

Developing training methodologies that greatly enhance the ability to deal with and understand the associated problems with mass attack altercations.

I have always been fascinated with the study of the human; DNA clearly been a “secret” code of our genetic makeup. I have always, right from the very beginning of my studies, been captivated with the process of Defence in Action; how to make a defence mechanism the most brutal form of self-defence, as luck would have it, DNA can also be seen as an abbreviation for Defence ‘n’ A… so there you have it…

DNA – Defence in Action; perfectly describes what we do, and what I have been doing all my life.

DNA is the “secret code” of life, it can be considered as one of the building blocks of the body. In a nut shell DNA is quite simply YOU!

So the human already possess within an incredible primal instinct, BUT wait, there’s a twist here; due to the society that we all now live within, the human has become domesticated, what does that mean? Well domestication in a nutshell basically means that our primal instinct has become dormant, redundant, no longer needed in its true and real form!

So, this domestication has confused the Human; it has caused the human to lose touch with its true primal instinct, yet it is this inherent primal instinct that bequeaths us the ability to out think all other animals, thus placing us at the top of the predatory tree of life.
