Our training is not centered on hard physical training. We take anyone, no matter their physical fitness level, abilities, "handicaps", strength level, age level from mature teens and older, size, weight, experience, occupation, and any other attribute you can think of. We believe that anyone can learn self defense given their own particular environment.
You are a perfect fit. None of us are violent people. Thats not the way we train our students. Our program is not focused on making warriors out of our students. While we teach the tangible physical skills of self-defense to be efficient and brutal if need be, our philosophy is to learn to avoid physical engagement. We seek to identify each students strengths so that we help them identify and develop their own personal defensive strategy and it fits them.
You can do one of two things. You can request private lessons if you feel that you would rather start out by yourself. Private lessons are $125/month or join one of our public 4 week "Foundations" courses for $100.00 for the 4 weeks. We are very welcoming and non-judgmental.
Dress is anything you want to wear. Our classes are not physically exhausting. You can wear athletic apparel or anything your comfortable in.
You can register online with a credit card or cash is welcome as well.
We are very welcoming, supportive of each other and very non-judgmental. I can proimise you that one of the by products olf our classes is and increased level of confidence.
No every thing is provided. The only thing some of our students purchase are inner gloves or hand wrap gloves for the bag work but thats optional.
We work in 2 person teams but there is no combative sparring inviolved in our training at the beginning levels.
Our Foundational classes are designed to be stand alone so that if you start in the third week, you just take the 4th week class followed by week 1's class and then week 2's class. You can jump in and start in any order. You dont have to start at week one.
Yes absolutely. We can work that out. We like to keep classes to around 8 people or so max (give or take 1 or 2). But if you want to do that, lets talk. See my contact iknformation in my bio.
Not at the moment. The discussions we have in our classes, while not crude or inappropriate, are geared toward mature teens and adults.
