What You Need To Know

Our self-defense seminars include escapes, both from standing and ground, along with realistic striking techniques. We also include handgun retention and disarms, along with defense against an edged weapon, and using your folding knife as a last resort defensive weapon.  Our self-defense seminars are geared towards the armed citizen.

Martial arts training is excellent training if you are willing to invest the time. Unfortunately, many people are too busy with family and career, or against the idea of training at a dojo for a variety of reasons. Our instructors have very impressive backgrounds in martial arts and instruction, and focus of reality based training. Unless someone has training for thousands of hours on finesse techniques, they will be unable to perform them under stress. Our striking is based on gross motor skills: knees, elbows, palms, and simple kicks. We also include techniques to avoid being taken to the ground, and techniques for escaping and returning to your feet if you somehow end up on the ground. We teach people how to escape arm and body grabs. We often teach private groups exclusively for women. We can also include weapon retention techniques for armed citizens, and disarming techniques for if you are facing an armed attacker with your bare hands. We also have classes geared towards using your folding knife as a last resort defensive weapon.
