Who is Luke Holloway?

Luke Holloway is the founder of Raw Combat International and the creator of the T.V. Series "Keep it Raw". He grew up in a Martial Arts, hunting and survival lifestyle from a young age in Australia, developing skills in as many 'styles' as he possibly could.


Working as a bouncer and in Close Protection he came to deal with serious violence as a professional on a very regular basis.


Learning in real world situations how to deal with aggressors, immediate violence and high risk situations, Luke developed his unique training methods by pressure testing all 'techniques' and drills to see what proved effective in REAL situations.


As well as being a highly respected figure in the Martial Arts world, Luke has been a pioneer in developing standards of training for professionals ensuring that everything taught and trained is relevant to the end users needs.

What will I learn at the Luke Holloway Seminar?

Luke is an expert instructor and by using various teaching and practice methods you will learn his simple and effective skills in self protection and invisible blade training – depending on which day you attend.


Luke will lead the training with talks and demonstrations and will set up group drills and work with all attendees to improve and develop your technique.

What Previous Luke Holloway Seminar Attendees say:

"I decided to attend a seminar that a mutual friend put together in The O2 in London to give it a try. I FUCKIN LOVED it!!"

- London Seminar Participant


"The seminar had me hooked. I would recommend RCI to anyone who wants to learn something WORTH knowing that can be applied to every day life skills whether it be in your work environment or social circles or simply anyone who wants to boost their confidence and be a badass zombie killer!! KEEP IT RAW”

- London Seminar Participant

"RCI’s no bullshit approach has introduced me to a wide array of tools and techniques. What’s more, the team are knowledgeable, approachable and dedicated to continuing their combat education. "

- Baltimore Seminar Participant


"Raw Combat taught me that it shouldn't take you long to become proficient at defending your self. 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 Seminar Participant


"I have taken part in a few one day seminars with Luke Holloway on self-protection and Raw Silat. I have found the training to be extremely well put together. I highly recommend these courses to anybody, with a fighting/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.”

- Sydney 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 then that your going to find and face in a class/Dojo. I highly recommend taking this course."
