Our current self-defense class is meant to be a beginners class.  It will involve some lecture and mindset ideas, it will then transition to hands on training with a partner to learn and practice techniques.  Classes are kept small to keep an eye on detail and a safe pace and environment for everyone.

We recommend comfortable shoes and clothing you can move in.  No weapons of any type are allowed, we recommend bringing a bottle of water or hydrating beverage (no alcohol).

As this is intended as a beginners course, no previous experience is necessary.  We often ask if anyone has previous experience or training and encourage the sharing of experience if appropriate.

Yes we certainly can, please contact us at and we will work with you to schedule a class.
