Sometimes people want to study martial arts. Sometimes people want to take a self defense class. We’re fine with that. We offer self defense seminars. We offer martial arts classes. We think that, long term, martial arts provides students with a thorough understanding of practical self defense. We think that regular training helps students understand their capacity in terms of what threats they can realistically handle because they’ve gotten enough feedback from drills and against the active resistance of their partners. We think that self defense seminars are fabulous at introducing students to actual threats that exist in the real world and giving them some basic physical and mental skills to cope with those threats.
