Would you be able to defend yourself and your loved ones if someone were to physically attack you? It’s a question most of us don’t want to consider, but violence is, unfortunately, a fact of life. Thankfully, regardless of strength, size, or previous training, anyone can learn several effective self-defense techniques.

The FBI estimated that the rate of aggravated assault cases in the United States was 248.9 per 100,000 inhabitants in 2017. Many people find it unpleasant to think about the possibility of being the victim of an attack. Unfortunately, violence has many forms, and it’s best to prepare yourself with the knowledge and skills to defend yourself should a situation arise.
We offer a self defense class to teach our members important tactics on how to protect themselves. This 6-week small group training/self defense class will provide a set of awareness, assertiveness, verbal confrontation skills, safety strategies, and physical techniques that enable someone to successfully escape, resist, and survive violent attacks. A good self defense course provides psychological awareness and verbal skills, not just physical training.
The majority of the class consists of basic self defense tactics to get out of, avoid, or detain a violent attacker. While it involves some physical components, the class isn’t too physically demanding and focuses more on technique and effectiveness.
Here are some examples of moves you will learn:
- Alluding chokes
- Escaping wrist/hand locks
- Simple arm bars
- Strike points to vulnerable parts of the body such as knees, groin, neck and face
