"Violence. We see it or hear about it everyday. We always think that it will happen to other people. It got me thinking; what if I'm one of those other people? I didn't have a clue about how to effectively defend myself if I was ever attacked. It was in that moment that I realized I needed to stop living passively in a false sense of security and take control of my own safety. I started taking Functional Self Protection classes at Strike Back Martial Arts 1 year ago. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The staff are incredibly welcoming, patient and professional. They put me at ease for making what could be intimidating training a lot of fun. I have learned how to adapt and respond to situations that previously I would have felt helpless in. This is a great class for anyone with a willingness to be prepared for a situation where you may have to rely on yourself to save your own life." Cara
The Functional Self-Protection program is designed for the person who does not have a lot of time to train but still desires to be safe and able to protect themselves or loved ones.
This program provides students with a principal based program that allows a student to quickly become effective dealing with violence regardless of their age, sex, size or skill. Functional Self-Protection is taught at a very slow and safe pace to prevent injury and has been taught to students ranging in age from 16 to 72.
