Students of the CrossSwords Way train toward excellence in all three wings of the academy: JADE, RUBY, and GOLD.
RUBY represents a complete certification in hand-to-hand combatives essential for the gaining of confidence in life situations based in a real competence to handle oneself in self defense. 

**While this program is included in the RUBY wing for students of  the CrossSwords Way, it may also be trained in isolation for those seeking martial combat skills.**

Headmaster Smith has over a decade of experience coaching people of all levels and ages toward growth in this area, and has developed the Street-Certified Martial Combat Technician program [or CrossSwords Street-Certified Combat – CSMC for short] as a way to build the core essentials of self defense and the martial arts taken from a variety of sources the world over.
