Upcoming Tools & Tactics Class Themes

Monday, October 8th (7:30 to 8:15 pm)

Knife Defense

Learn how to use and defend against a knife, one of the most dangerous weapons we could face in self-defense.  

 

Monday, October 15th (7:30 to 8:15 pm)

Knife Defense

A continuation of training from the previous week: using and defending against a knife. You do not need to have attend last week to attend this class.  

 

Monday, October 22nd (7:30 to 8:15 pm)

Multiple Attackers

In this class we’ll introduce the idea of how to deal with more than one attacker. Self-defense becomes exponentially more difficult the more attackers you have, so we’ll begin with some awareness and positioning strategies as a way to prevent worst-case scenarios, then proceed to more advanced and challenging situations. 

 

Monday, October 29th (7:30 to 8:15 pm)

Pistol Defenses

Another worst-case self-defense scenario is dealing with someone armed with a pistol. We’ll look at beginning strategies for dealing with these encounters.
