Now Offered: Self Defense Courses
We have an exciting Personal Protection Program for all ages. The program is offered to everyday people, based on education and simple techniques that will empower you to be more aware, build your confidence, and help you live a safer life. The techniques are easily learned and based on body mechanics you have been doing your whole life: clapping hands, turning a key, knocking on a door, and more. The program is based on a self escape philosophy. The program does not show you how to stand there and fight a person, it shows you how to create a window of opportunity to get away. The program also teaches you how to be aware of your surroundings by learning how to scan your environment and avoid a bad situation. The program will build self confidence through education and training. It will empower you with the knowledge and skills useful for handling difficult situations. This is not a martial art program. We teach protection classes for all ages.
