Our Philosophy


The number of techniques is kept to a minimum so you can master them in a matter of months rather than years. The defenses are designed to rely on gross-motor movements, which means they’ll work under pressure in a real fight. Most important, the entire program was created as a lawful self-defense system, one that teaches legally defensible responses to attacks.

Simply put, there’s no better self-defense system or course in existence. If you’ve never taken a martial arts lesson in your life, no problem! We cover everything you need to know from the ground up. If you’ve trained in a traditional martial art for years or even decades, we won’t try to get you to abandon your roots. Instead, we’ll tell you how your current skills fit into this system and how you can tweak them for maximum effectiveness on the street.
