Self Defense Seminars

AK with Sonny Puzikas

In addition to our weeknight self defense and martial arts classes we also offer weekend self defense events and seminars nearly every weekend in Texas. These seminars are not only meant to be excellent additions to our weeknight self defense classes but also for those who can not make it to our week night classes. These seminars and events range in everything from basic NRA firearms classes all the way to multi-day self defense events, including knife fighting, gun fighting, indoor CQB tactics, first aid trauma medical training and much more. We also team up with other groups in order to bring in big name instructors to us at a discount, saving everyone time and money.

ALIVE! Training Meetup - Every 1st Saturday

Knife Fighting in Salado Texas

ALIVE! prioritizes the use of weapons for personal defense using a contextual training methodology that builds skill fast. ALIVE! is a comprehensive system that uses a single set of actions for close range gunfighting, knife, and empty hands defense.

This month we will be working accessing again, focusing on some of the more challenging situations such as the "grab and stab", "sewing machine", and other up close and personal attacks. As ALIVE! is a fighting system that seamlessly integrates empty hands, knife, and pistol, the skills you learn in our knife meetups have many applications.

Saturday training group meetups will be held once a month. Classes will be intense but well-paced and provide you with take-home training goals for you to work in-between meetups. Because we will train with a spiral curriculum you can miss a month and return the next without missing essential instruction. If you will commit to learning ALIVE! we are committed to you.

Location: Salado Martial Arts Salado, Texas.
Date: Every 1st Saturday of the Month
Time: 1pm – 5pm
