About This Class

AWARENESS & PREVENTION

You have to work late again.  It's dark, you got a lousy parking spot and you're the last one in the building. What do you do?

I'm willing to bet that most of you wouldn't think much of this scenario as you've been in this situation many times.  Lock up, check your phone and head out to your car while deciding whether it's pizza or burgers tonight on the way home.

The first 3 modules of this course are going to teach you the proper precautions to take if you find yourself in this scenario and others like it.  

This training has modified the habits of hundreds of my corporate clients. I highly encourage you to "un"learn dangerous behaviors such as distracted texting or unlocking your car from over 10 feet away.  Self Defense is not just the act of physically defending yourself against an attack, it's also recognizing a potential situation where you are vulnerable to an assault and preventing that situation.

7 BRUTALLY EFFECTIVE & SIMPLE TECHNIQUES TO DISABLE AND ESCAPE THE MOST COMMON ASSAULTS USED ON WOMEN

You're working late again and as you're checking messages on your way to the car, you're grabbed from behind in a violent choke hold.  

Your daughter or your little sister is out on a date with someone you think is a little creepy and find out he grabbed her by the wrist to drag her into a room at a party she wasn't supposed to be at...

In this course, you'll learn how to protect yourself from these types of assaults. The methods you will learn to combat each of the 7 common attacks have been tested aggressively against women in my corporate training classes. Your homework will be to practice yourself.

This course is one of the only self defense trainings that prepare you for the actual violence that really occurs during a real life attack.  

PANIC PREVENTION

I don't teach complex martial arts counter attacks that require years of practice.  You think you'll remember a three step counter attack if you're attacked for real?  No, and you're not supposed to. Attacks only take seconds and seconds is the difference between your safety or your tragedy.  

My mission is to replace your instinctive reaction from frozen panic to an immediate simple counter assault move to disable and escape the bad guys (or gals) out to do damage to you.

On behalf of my wife Tracy and myself, we want to say thank you in advance for your time and we truly hope that what we teach you will never have to use.
