Have you ever worried what you would do if you were the target of criminal violence? Could you protect yourself or the ones you love? If the above questions have ever been a concern, you will find both the skills and understanding with this training!

This program is tailored to busy individuals that do not have time to commit to formal marital arts training. It is a reality-based self-defense system blended with the sciences of anatomy and sports physiology.

All training is done with the following assumptions:

      Your attacker(s) are bigger, stronger, or have weapons.

      You are already being attacked (and your options to get away are gone).

It is a simple, safe, and devastatingly effective program using intuitive movements that anyone can do regardless of
physical ability. It is slow paced with minimal stress. Students will learn to accurately target vulnerable structures
and areas of the human body, build mental sight pictures and muscle memory – all with the goal to recall and
use when it’s most needed.

No prior martial arts training is required.

This class is taught by Sensei Michael Christesen with over 30 years of martial arts instruction that includes Shotokan Karate, Jeet Kune Do, Japanese Jujitsu and Reality Based Self-Defense.
