Self Defense – Urban Equalizer!

Practical Self Defense is not something you can learn in one class, but it’s not necessarily something you learn in long term martial arts training either, even after training many years in a hard style like Karate.  Self Defense is about awareness, and often times is more about submission, suppression, or simply escape, than it is about striking and delivering damage as you would in a system like Karate.

Sensei Vern Vaden is a 6th Dan(6th Degree Black belt) in Shotokan Karate, and has developed a series of techniques and concepts that can be taught to absolute beginners, and with practice and some additional training, can become effective life saving self defense techniques.

Classes are organized for either men or women, and are held on a seminar basis semi-monthly.
