Adult Self Defense Classes


Jiu-jitsu ground fighting with knives

Currently our weeknight classes are on hold as we are concentrating on our weekend events!

We offer weeknight self defense and martial arts classes along with weekend events and seminars. One of the major things that separates us from the rest is that we have integrated the very best of traditional martial arts, such as ALIVE! Combatives, Russian Martial Art Systema, American Ninjutsu, Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing, and others. Along with military combatives and weapon focused training, all while using a realistic context driven methodology to allow our students to build real self defense skills fast. We know our personal self defense system works because you will make it work against other living people who are trying to win. There are no formal katas, one-steps or forms here, just real self defense.

All of our self defense and martial arts classes prioritizes the use of weapons for ones personal self defense. Our Tuesday night classes focuses primarily on usage of knifes and other personal carry weapons, and our Thursday night classes focuses more on empty hand skills for those times where a weapon is not available. We recommend all of self defense minded students to show up wearing pants with pockets and a belt.
