Age Groups and Organizations
Youth and Teens
We provide a customized youth self-defense course for students as young as 8 years old. Teenagers, 13-15 years of age, are trained together while teenagers 16-18 older are trained using a transition to adulthood curriculum. For most children and teens we recommend joining our school as a kung fu student where they can benefit from a longer training period in self-defense. This is especially true for recent high school grads before they go to college.
The adult curriculum uses scenarios that are most likely to happen to adults ages 19 - 50.
Our senior curriculum is based on those ages 60+. This curriculum is shorter as physical abilities at this age are not the same as when we are younger. Classes teach students how to use self-defense within their capabilities. Introduces gentle exercises to help maintain or improve current physical conditioning. If you are still fit at 60 then you are more than welcome to join our regular adult classes.
We provide self-defense training and classes for schools, clubs, work places, youth groups, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, church groups, Fraternities, Sororities, and even other martial arts schools.
Specialized Women's Girl's Self-defense
Girls learn that being a princess is not a tradeoff for being able to protect herself. The curriculum is based on specific challenges, threats, and dangers that girls are most likely to encounter. Girls learn the same self-defense techniques that boys learn plus more
Women will learn about their inner warrior and how to productively embrace their aggression, frustration, and energy (things that men embrace more readily). Women experience the empowerment that comes with able to defend themselves. Just like the classes for girls, the classes for women are based on the challenges, threats, and dangers that women are likely to encounter. Women learn the same self-defense that men learn plus more.
Mother Daughter Self-defense
This is a 2 person self-defense training lesson that teaches self-defense as a team effort where mother and daughter operate as a pack to help increase their safety. Men naturally have a pack mentality as they are taught that they have the responsibility to look after the family. The term family extends beyond biological family and can include friends. Women and girls often seek independence but this is one of the times where being part of a pack has great benefits.
School: Harassment and Anti-Bully Self-Defense
Middle School and High School
Today's bullying is not the same as it was 20 years ago. Today's kids and teens are stronger, bigger, and are more brutal than children of 20 years ago. Unfortunately, we are just as likely to see a child or teen commit violent crimes as we are an adult to commit a violent crime. In many cases, such violent acts cause life-long trauma and permanent physical damage with the worst case scenario being death.
Our self-defense class will help improve your child's ability to stay safe at school. Classes are specifically designed to help your child not to become a target in the first place and to be able to physically protect themselves if needed
Online Harassment / Bullying (Cyber bullying)
Technology has improved our lives in some ways and in other ways it has made things 100 times worse. The danger of only bullying is that there is no consequence for it and it allows people to hide behind false identities. In addition, it's not localized to a school or a neighborhood. The cruelty can be initiated globally and can literally ruin the lives of any child or adult. The good news is that it's easier than most people tend to think and it just requires determination, self-esteem, and the understanding that it can end with the end of a click or be prevented much easier than avoid or preventing a physical attack
