Element of Surprise

A great defense could fail if the attacker can see it coming. In this training you’ll learn how to fit an attacker’s expectations in order to discover their intent, while covertly positioning yourself for powerful strikes and planning your escape. Make them believe that you are not a threat until the moment they reveal an opening.

Leg and Arm Traps

Explore principles of leg and arm traps that can be used to escape situations in which the attacker has a superior position, these examples illustrate how to effectively uproot an attacker’s balance, greatly reducing their ability to throw effective strikes.

Knife Defense Workshop

Join senior practitioners Bryan Griffin, Scott Bragg, James Norris, and Hardee Merritt for a virtual workshop covering several knife scenarios and self defense options.
