About the event

In this course, you will start to learn the fundamental concepts that will keep you safer in the event of an unarmed attack. We will cover some basic ground fighting and stand-up techniques, escaping common attack holds, and ways to disable an attacker. All techniques will be practiced in a controlled manner and at your own pace. 


The July course dates are: July 8, 15, 22, 29 from 9am-10am. Each class will build on the skills developed in the previous classes, so we highly encourage you to attend all classes.
