Basic Self Defense (SD101)
Course Price: $65
In this class, you will learn more about body language, non-verbal communication, and pre-attack indicators. We will also talk about how the predators among us use what is called "Target Selection" in picking a victim, and how to work on minimizing it. Physiological and psychological reactions to an attack will be discussed, as well. Participants will also learn some basic skills to counteract an aggressor's actions.
Comfortable clothing (jeans or sweats), T shirt or sweatshirt, and sneakers.
No high heels, sandals, flip flops, or hard-soled shoes.
You will be working in close proximity with others, so good grooming and appropriate clothing is appreciated.
This class is on the low end of being physically demanding. If you have any questions about pre-existing injuries or limitations, please contact us before registering.
Frequently Asked Questions
Thanks so much for the course today! It was wonderful. Beforehand, I was afraid the instructors would be macho guys like the ones who taught the hunter safety course I went to. You can imagine how glad I was to find you an encouraging and confidence-boosting person who wasn't about to make fun of me for not knowing something! In fact there are a lot of things I was afraid of before that do not scare me anymore. I think the biggest thing I learned is not so much that I can and should do something in the event that I am attacked, but what some of my options are and confidence. If I had been attacked before this, I would likely have frozen thinking, "I should know what to do! I have to do something or this will be my fault!" but draw a complete blank on workable options. Now I know some options and I am excited about learning and practicing more in the near future. I may never have been attacked, but there have been times that fear and emotional intimidation of others has overpowered me because I was afraid it could become physical. It will not happen again though, because I know I can win if someone does resort to physical methods. You may never know what this has done for me, but THANK YOU!

Where do I begin? When I met Dave, I was extremely fragile. I had no self esteem, being a victim of "Domestic Violence". His teachings are informational and they do WORK. I personally have some issues with specific instances and Dave has helped me overcome them slowly at my own pace. His techniques work. I practice consistantly and have actually used a couple in different situations. As a woman, I was tired of being mentally and physically challenged and afraid. I found myself weak. In working with Dave for almost a year, I can hold my head high and be confident that I will not be a victim anymore. The techniques are simple and get the job done. I have been to many of Dave's classes. He is always willing to approach different situations. Every person has different issues and Dave takes each one as if it were the most difficult situation. I have brought this training to the attention of my family and co-workers. Many of them have attended his classes. The lecture part of his classes are so informational. I found myself going out and buying books to read, walking differently and becoming more alert in my surroundings. The demonstational classes are a lot of fun and seem real. Dave takes situations and applies them to everyday life. I recommend women, children and men take Dave's training classes. I am a much stronger individual physically and mentally for taking that initial step and calling Dave! Besides, who does not like having their own personal trainer? Thank you Dave!!!!"
