Combat & Fitness


Our teaching approach is purpose driven and to the point. Your time is valuable so that means we won't waste it on flashy theories and gimmicks that provide unreliable results in a real life violent encounter.  

Our instructors create a friendly and supportive environment designed to deliver the most effective results.

We have made it our mandate to teach proven self-protection skills that work for all ages, genders and body types. We will demystify and explore the psychological, emotional, and physical aspects of violence and teach you how to turn them to your advantage when it matters the most. 

What do thugs, predators and criminals alike all know that give them the tactical advantage in every attack? They know how to commit 100% with violent intent each and every time. They know what they want then they just go for it. Easier said than done but it is just that simple.
