EZ Defense

You Can Protect Yourself!

EZ Defense is a highly specialized self-defense program that teaches participants to successfully defend against an assailant of any size.

EZ Defense is based on the idea that learning is best accomplished by "doing". In all our programs, you will work with a highly trained team of instructors who will create a safe, yet powerful scenarios and role plays designed to help you experience the "rush" of self defense without the danger of consequences.

Learn simple, effective self-defense and prevention skills through the EZ Defense program. These are techniques any person regardless of age or fitness level, can learn.

Practice in a safe environment. The instructor teaches and demonstrates all the techniques and coaches students while they practice. For classes involving strikes, the instructors wear padded armor and are trained to allow you to hit and kick w/ full force.

The Programs:

Level One: Non-Contact, Verbal Boundaries

In this program, you'll learn how to assert yourself and deal with the natural excitement and fear that can cause you to " freeze up" when faced with an aggressor. You'll be lead through simple but effective drills and scenarios designed to help you overcome the uncomfortable feelings and fear that can mark you as an easy target for an attack.

Understand how to use your emotions to help you become stronger and safer. Fear and anger are tremendous sources of power when used in defense.

The Level One program has no contact and is a perfect introductory program.

Level Two: First Strike

Students learn to deliver effective strikes and kicks to vital areas. Studies show that information learned under an adrenal state becomes firmly rooted. Basically, what you learn under stress "sticks". Still, this class is as enjoyable as it is effective. You will be surprised how much fun learning these strikes will be.
