Private and Public Lessons in the New Haven Area
Our program has 5 tiered levels that strike a balance between raw combatives and self-defense applications. In Level 1 we focus on hand-to-hand defense, basic use of impact tools, and common knife defense. Our knife defense strategy combines a basic guided angle set with the harsh reality of a wild slasher and a grab-and-stab to keep you best protected. These techniques are based on analysis of dozens of attacks caught on camera and pressure tested defense.
