No Gun...No Knife...No Pepper Spray...Just You - That is the question that drives our program.
Our Foundations course is designed for those with busy schedules, hectic lives or anyone who wants a short course in self-defense. Maybe you don't have the time or desire for a longer training program but want to learn some of the basics and principles so you can feel a little more secure and in control of your own safety...and we get that.
In our 4 week class @1 hour each week, we introduce and teach the soft skills of self-defense and some of the more tangible skills of physical defense and we will help identify the skills that are aligned with your strengths. At the end of class I can promise that you will have an initial personal self-defense strategy, find strengths you never knew you had and an appropriate level of confidence in yourself that you didn't know existed. We won't promise you that you will be a super hero but you will be a more knowledgeable citizen and much more capable of defending yourself.
The soft skills include avoidance, situational awareness, behavioral analysis, and de-escalation of stressful situations. Reading the environment is key and is a skill that keeps in you control of your safety and security. There's no magic, but it is a learned skill.
The tangible skills include, how to strike, where to strike and when to strike. In this 4 week class we include combative strategies if you have to physically defend yourself. We teach how to counter someone who is trying to choke you. We teach skills to counter someone trying to abduct you.
We are not looking for exceptionably fit or even reasonably fit students. Anyone regardless of their athletic ability or capability can learn skills, principles and concepts to live safer and more secure lives. This is not a physical demanding course but we do work on physical skills. We would love to have you join us. Enroll with a friend!
