Mindset is your greatest weapon, but fists do more damage! According to the FBI Uniform Crime Report (UCR), more people were killed with fists & feet than they were with rifles in 2020. [Breitbart article published Sept. 27, 2021].
The fact is that critical incidents go down fast and close (typically between 9 - 15 feet). A violent criminal jacked up on who knows what can close that distance in less than two seconds. That means if you're fortunate enough to be armed that day, you still may not have enough time to access your weapon before your attacker is in arm's reach.
Is your goose already cooked? No! The fight is never over until you give up!!
Learning unarmed self-defense is a critical part of your personal defense strategy. We favor Krav Maga, which was developed for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), because it promotes simple, yet effective, techniques designed to do the most damage with as little time & effort as possible, allowing you to escape or create distance to access your gun.
Instructors Katie Smith and Judi Phelps will teach you the fighting skills & techniques you need to address common attack scenarios. We'll start with the basics and build on those fundamental skills as we progress through the program refining our techniques and committing them to muscle memory.
This course is co-ed and open to students ages 12 and older. This is a hands-on and physically demanding class, but will also be modified to accommodate all fitness levels, injuries or limitations. Please let us know if you need special accommodations.
Session Length: 1 Hour (1pm-2pm) | Cost: $15
