Survive the most likely violent situations
Learn essential self defense skills quickly
Ensure your freedom and safety
STEP 1: Assess
First, you’ll learn to size up the situation that you’re in: what the criminal’s goals are, size up the physical situation, and take legal considerations into account so that you can get the most accurate assessment possible.
STEP 2: Plan
Now that you have an accurate assessment of the scenario, you’ll learn to develop a simple plan of action. A plan is a map. With a plan, you’ll have a basic course of action on what you need to do and how to get there. This will also allow you to stay on the right of the law.
STEP 3: Act
Finally, you’ll learn the skills and drills to survive against a bigger, stronger, meaner bad guy. We’ll help you learn a range of options from avoiding a situation completely, to verbal tactics to de-escalate a tense encounter, to physically fighting back against a sudden attack.
