A very practical self-defense class that prepares you for real-world threats. More emphasis on fighting concepts than memorizing impractical techniques. I highly recommend it!

Rapid Assault Tactics  - JKD Combatives!
Rapid Assault Tactics (R.A.T.) is a "Close Quarter Combative" system from Progressive Fighting Systems incorporating elements of contemporary Jeet Kune Do , Kali/ FMA, and other martial/ combative arts. It was originally created for the military and other government agencies but has since been adapted for the civilian sector and has been successfully taught to thousands around the world. If you want a No-Nonsense, No-Fluff, scientifically proven method of "Street Self Protection" - this is your program

Edge, Impact, & EDC Weapons Training (KALI)
Even with the advent of modern weaponry, skills in impact and bladed weapons never get obsolete. Knives, sticks, and other improvised weapons can be great equalizers if you are ever attacked. The skills you learn with these weapons are directly transferable to everyday self defense carry items (EDC)  including pens, palm sticks, keychains, flashlights, phones, umbrellas, water bottles, book bags, purses, belts, scarfs, canes, walking sticks, expandable batons, and more. Call us now to learn more about our Kali/ Combative weapons program.
