”It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”
There are misconceptions about self-defense. Some people think it’s all about a bunch of tricks and quick moves. Others think it’s about being a tough guy, that the biggest and strongest always wins the fight.
Strength is deceiving.
So before I can teach you to defend yourself, I must teach you how to get ready to defend yourself.
First we get you physically fit. Jumping jacks, push-ups, sit-ups. Exercises that will harden the body and tighten up the muscles. A person needs to be fit with loose ligaments and joints so that the body is limber and fluid.
As your body strengthens, we teach you foundational techniques. Some simple, some complex.
People react differently to specific situations. I take a person’s natural reactions and turn them into self-defense techniques, rather than teaching a “one size fits all” approach.
If you find yourself in a situation, you want your body to react naturally.
I don’t approach self-defense as, “Here’s an 8 week course and that’s all you need to know.” You won’t be ready for anything, other than ready to get hurt.
If I stop training my skill level goes down, my strength goes down, and my timing goes down. I won’t be prepared physically for an altercation.
Once you’re physically ready for self-defense we can focus on the most important aspect…your mind.
