Classes for students focus on basic self defense techniques and tactics, learning to spot danger signs and how to defend yourself when no danger signs are given.  This program will emphasize realistic scenarios and realistic defenses.  The program deals specifically with how to safely and effectively fend off an attacker with punches, elbows, knees, and kicks. The program incorporates training methods to build students' confidence, fighting spirit and to train them how to respond both mentally and physically in a time of need, eliminating the danger of "freezing" or "shutting down" in confrontations.
