The workshop is essentially a 2 to 2 1/2 hour self defense session covering the primary steps and techniques needed to survive and escape from a sudden street level assault. The workshop teaches the student:

> highly effective strikes
> vulnerable body target areas
> escapes from chokes and grabs
> correct fight stance
> proper mindset and street awareness

The workshop is designed for those individuals who don't have the time or the desire to take ongoing martial arts classes but still want to learn the highly effective techniques needed to defeat a street level attack. The workshop is also beneficial for those who
plan on pursuing martial arts training and would like a jump start on that training.

The workshop is taught in a fun and safe manner. The techniques that you will learn are user friendly and workable as soon as you leave the workshop. One hour follow up classes are available for students who are interested in further fine tuning their techniques.
