Self-Defense Awareness Class

$120

with Travis Allen

Calendar Sep 30, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 8 weeks

Reality Based Self-Defense (RBSD) combines psychological and physical aspects for more efficient techniques and self awareness. Self awareness is a big part of self-defense. Being self aware includes having situational and environmental awareness. RBSD uses all these to allow you to protect yourself and others with less energy and more effective results. You will be prepared to take control of any dangerous situation life throws your way with more confidence. We don't have gis or pretty belts. We do not do katas nor do we do forms. We are completely BS free. We teach techniques that are effective in today's potentially dangerous society. Reality based techniques are created by using body mechanics, physics and anatomy - the trifecta of effectiveness.  In addition, you will also be psychologically prepared to react to these type of situations (this is the most important part of any defense system). You will be empowered with effective techniques and have the confidence to use them. RBSD does not discriminate against age, height or weight. This works for anyone. You DO NOT have to hurt someone to keep safe control of a situation. No class 10/14/19 or 11/11/19; makeup class, if needed, 12/09/19.
