The self-defense modules are designed to interlock in developing techniques and skills which have been proven to work for the non-martial artist against full power attacks from an assailant. We teach awareness, avoidance, space management, and a system of resisting assaults using simple to learn gross-body movements that take advantage of your natural instincts, which are easier to remember under stress.
