Wedding Wire Co-Ed Self-Defense Workshop

This special co-ed Self-Defense workshop for both men and women will cover the 5 most vital physical and verbal techniques paired with key mental concepts

The workshop is led by Bartman MMA's Relson Gracie Self-Defense certified Instructors, Greg Bartman and Tori Garten, whose combination of technical instruction paired with in-depth understanding of participant concerns and experiences make this a powerful seminar not to be missed!

The session will cover an assortment of self-defense physical techniques for the most common forms of aggression, such as grabs, shoves, and holds, as well as demonstrations of what happens if the situation ends up on the ground. Along with the physical techniques we will discuss verbal and emotional/mental self-defense concepts. We'll cover a few self-defense misconceptions and offer alternative solutions. Our techniques are primarily based on the proven methods of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, and do not require strength or athletic ability to succeed. We focus on stopping the immediate danger, improving our position, and then either disengaging or, if need be, establishing control to stay safe.

The statistics for violence and assault can be alarming and frequently people react to these statistics in two ineffective ways 1) Ignoring: "It won't happen to me because of such and such," or 2) Over-vigilance that affects a person's quality of life. 

We look to give participants the knowledge and skills to put the emotional response in its place and be able to react to the situation at hand. The blend of verbal, mental and physical self-defense techniques we teach will definitely boost self-confidence. Many people find it impacts their life in more ways than just how they walk through a dark parking garage.

If you are wondering whether or not you can do it - you can! The hardest part is taking the first step.

Learning these amazing skills can be a life-changing experience.

We look forward to training with you!
