Self Defense for All Ages

Our Approach to Self Defense

EB-Edits-1370 sized & croppedThe self-defense strategies and tactics we teach are based on the Northern Shaolin system of kung fu and tai chi.  This system focuses on using an opponent’s force against him by using circular movements to redirect the force and attack the opponent’s weak points, instead of directly meeting force with force.

Most importantly, our philosophy of self-defense focuses on avoiding aggression by being aware of your surroundings, recognizing danger signs, and responding without physical force.  We teach that the use of physical force should always be a last resort, and that avoiding aggression is the best way to prevail in any confrontation.
