Self-Defense

IMG_0771

If you were ever in a self-defense situation, what would you do?

I sincerely hope you never need to find out. But the truth is that most of us don’t know what to do. I’m amazed to see how unaware most of us are of our physical surroundings. We are buried in our cell phones, distracted by our kids, or letting our minds wander. Or even if we are fully aware, we could be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Practicing self-defense means taking positive control of our minds, bodies, and surroundings through:

  • awareness
  • avoidance
  • de-escalation
  • escape

Meditation and yoga all help to handle the mental and psychological aspects of a self-defense situation. Functional fitness and martial arts help to handle the physical aspects.

I have dedicated myself to years of learning from experts of multiple self-defense systems.  And for years I have given this training back to the general public including civilian, law enforcement, and military populations. I have worked with people of a wide range of experiences, from families sending their daughters off to school, to those who have experienced trauma or assault in the past and are seeking empowerment, to Marines, Secret Service, and SWAT Officers.

There are many systems of self-defense. It is important to train in as many different systems as possible to find what works best for you. Based on my experience and training, I teach an integrated system of:

  • Krav Maga
  • Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
  • Muay Thai
  • Mixed Martial Arts

If you don’t know what you would do in a self-defense situation, please contact me, I can help.

If you work in law enforcement, the military, or are experienced in self-defense systems, please contact me also. I can guide you through new techniques, refine your existing skills, or integrate multiple systems with you.
