“Up to 80% of physical attacks can be prevented with good assertiveness and verbal defense skills.”

A large part of realistic self defense is knowing how to behave assertively, recognize potential trouble before it starts, resolve conflict peacefully, and using strong verbal defense skills when appropriate. Because of this, the majority of our self defense related seminars will focus around these on theses skills in addition to physical self defense techniques.

It’s much smarter to learn how to prevent a situation from getting physically violent because even if you come out on top- you still will likely be injured in the process. Our longer events cover how to fight back to escape to safety and survive, but only after teaching how to prevent an attack in the first place.
