Read about the Global Empowered Women Self-Defense workshop!
Learn powerful and effective techniques in a fun and safe environment! Get a workout, gain confidence, and build your skills! These comprehensive seminars and workshops lead by two (one male, one female) internationally ranked and recognized instructors, Head Instructor Greg Bartman and assistant instructor Tori Garten cover the fundamentals you need to protect yourself on the street.
The techniques are 100% realistic and based on Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Thai Kickboxing, the most practical martial arts. We focus on both mental and physical preparedness. You won't be learning how to stab some one with your keys, blow the whistle, or even "Wax-on Wax-off" Karate Kid moves - but real, practical moves you can use to escape, control, and subdue if necessary anyone who threatens you.
We will discuss Mental Preparedness, Environmental Awareness, Defensive Tips, Safety Precautions, and "Criminal" Concepts, as well as practice Physical Techniques including defending yourself against various grabs, holds, tackles, and strikes. Many attacks end up on the ground, so the seminar will include some moves on the mats in addition to some common standing techniques. Some basic defenses against weapon attacks can also be covered.
Wear comfortable workout clothes. And please invite a friend or two along for the fun! We've had great reviews of previous seminars and you won't want to miss out!
Please RSVP if you plan to attend. Arrive a few minutes early to complete registration and preview the instructional materials.
Seminars and workshops can also be scheduled for groups upon request. We regularly schedule seminars and workshops throughout the year for interested individuals, please contact us to get on the announcement list or to schedule a workshop geared towards your group!
We invite you to come in, meet some of the members, and train with us. Stop by soon and see what it's all about. We look forward to working out with you!
