Real fights do not look neat and pretty, like a choreographed scene from a kung-fu movie. They are typically unfair where people employ all types of dirty, nasty tricks to win. It is the only time when being “civil” is completely inappropriate, and being the ultimate opportunist is the most appropriate thing you could do under the circumstances. Down & dirty street fighting 101 focus on tactics and techniques that the average, everyday, unprepared, out of shape, person can use to defend themselves. It focuses on situational awareness, and how to use fear as an energy source to drive your fight against your opponent. It looks at very simple but dirty techniques on how to get a person “off you.” This class also focuses on the use and effective employment of improvised weapons that most people either have on their person every day or are commonly found. This would include pens, keys, nail files, glass bottles, books, magazines, eyeglasses, etc. No matter how proficient you are with guns, knives, etc. there will come a moment when you cannot have them with you. EVERYBODY needs to have some plain vanilla fighting skills. This is a one day six hour class. Cost: $35
The art of Self-Defense is not about learning to be a great fighter. It is all about learning how to strategically and effectively defuse a possible dangerous situation. If necessary a well-trained student of self-defense will sieze the appropriate moment to deliver lethal techniques to the attacker(s), thereby rendering the attaker(s) incapable of fighting. This class is not for the faint of heart or bullies, but for those who simply have the will to survive by any means necessary should such infortunate circumstances befall them.

This Class will teach students how to modify a generic orthopedic cane so it can become much more effective as a personal defense device. For me this was made a necessity after I developed health issues and now need to use a cane to walk. But like many people needing a “walking aid” I felt that by using a cane in public I'd marked myself as vulnerable and an easy target for the unfortunate low life segment of society that will attack or otherwise harm anyone they deem weaker than themselves. Students will learn how to effectively defend themselves against attackers with the cane
