Defense Against Weapons / Armed Assailant ($765)

In this course, students learn to defend themselves against an armed assailant. We cover self-defense strategies to counter an assault with knives, guns, and clubs. Students will learn about how weapons are used to intimidate as well how they are actually wielded

Defense Against Multiple Assailants (not offered in 2022)

While our Basics class prepares students to handle a single assailant, our Defense Against Multiple Assailants takes what students learned in Basics to a new level. This course prepares students to fight off multiple attackers, up to three at once. We cover self-defense strategies, techniques, and attitude for dealing with two or more assailants.
