Students must maintain control of themselves and execute skills and maneuvers as taught for safety purposes. It is always best in this course to bring your own personal mouth protection available at all sporting goods stores, wear comfortable and expendable clothing and comfortable jogging shoes, as this is an athletic type class, learning selfdefense. We understand that every student cannot accomplish every technique or maneuver that we teach, however we try to provide counter techniques that you can accomplish. We understand that students of all walks of life and ages need to have knowledge and abilities to overcome an unlawful attack against their body and their life.
