Developing a Personal Practice

We all need a touchstone, a time carved out of each day to care for ourselves and connect to something greater.
This seminar uses principles from many different disciplines to help you create and continue your own personal practice. It’s particularly helpful to those whose life includes service to others or high stress jobs.

Armed Self-Defense

Do you have your CCW? Do you carry a sidearm legally or illegally? Good for you, but do you know if you can get to it in an emergency. What if you are grabbed? If you carry a weapon, you need this class.

Applying self defense principles when you carry a sidearm
Getting space, freeing your hands, close combat with the sidearm, disarming an attacker.
Recommended 1-1.5 hours

Non-traditional Aikido

Aikido is an incredible martial art. It flows like no other. But it can be a little lacking in the reality department. That's okay, I can help that.  Come hone your technique from Non-traditional attacks. Apply the basic principles in new ways. And have some fun too.

This seminar is a must for every serious martial artist.
