A veteran of multiple combat tours, former Australian commando, Sergeant Paul Cale rewrote the book on Special Forces Close-Quarter Fighting (CQF), creating the foundation for the Australian Army Combatives Program (ACP)KEF–IC (Kinetic Fighting–Integrated Combat) encapsulates the methods underpinning Cale’s military programs. These methods are now being offered to non-military personnel.

He is a long-term practitioner of Boxing, Japanese Swordsmanship, Historical European Martial Arts, La Canne Vigny and Western Combatives, and holds grades in Kinetic Fighting–Integrated Combat (KEF–IC), Aikido, Mau Rakau (Maori martial arts), Kendo and Krav Maga.
