Our Adult Self Defense Martial Arts Classes are held every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

  • Russian Martial Art Systema: 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Our Russian Martial Art Systema class (sometimes called the "Russian Krav Maga") starts at 6:30pm until 7:30pm were we have a strong focus on empty hand combatives. Using a mix of centuries' old traditional Russian martial methodology and training tools, such as the nagaika, mixed with modern day training philosophy you will learn highly effective empty hand and weapon training. Check out our weeknight classes!

Then follows our ALIVE! Combatives class from 7:30pm to 8:30pm that focuses of knife and firearms training, all based around the seven most common situations you may encounter. Every Tuesday is knives and the Thursdays is focused on pistols and rifles. In a state where knives and firearms are not only common but constitutional, learn how to be effective with and against them. This class is highly effective for both men and women.
