All of our Self-Defense Courses delve into the subconscious art of reading environments, identifying potential risks, and adopting preventative strategies. Participants learn to recognize pre-incident indicators and navigate situations with heightened awareness, minimizing the likelihood of confrontations.

Curriculum Overview: Each of our self-defense courses provides a well-rounded curriculum that addresses a range of self-defense scenarios. The techniques taught draw from a combination of martial arts disciplines: Muay Thai kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu grappling, and aspects of Mixed Martial Arts. Combined together with other specialized techniques, these emphasize practicality, effectiveness, and ease of application. The curriculum is always evolving to stay current with the latest self-defense methodologies.

Defense Against Common Attacks: The courses cover a spectrum of common physical threats and attacks individuals might encounter in everyday life. Techniques include defenses against grabs, holds, strikes, and various forms of physical aggression. Emphasis is placed on leverage, redirection, and utilizing an opponent’s strength against them.

Ground Defense and Escapes: Given the importance of ground defense, especially for women, these self-defense courses address techniques for escaping from holds, ground-based attacks, and how to protect oneself if a confrontation goes to the ground. Ground defense is an essential aspect of the curriculum to ensure individuals are prepared for a variety of situations, and tap into conflict-proven Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques.
