What would you do if someone physically got their hands on you? Would you let fear take over and paralyze you? Or, would you FIGHT BACK and survive the encounter? Not knowing what to do in this violation of physical space can lead to fear, paralysis and great suffering. Learn how to fight back and defend yourself against a close range enemy or threat. The key to surviving an encounter is understanding your Position, Attitude, Awareness and Response (PAAR). Once you control these variables, success can be yours.

In this 6-week course you’ll learn:

  • How to strike at close range so you can have maximum impact.
  • How to escape from typical holds and grabs so that you can turn the tables.
  • How to read your environment so you can use what’s around you to your advantage.
  • How to stay alert so that you have an escape route at all times.
    and much more!

The class is led by speaker, self-defense combatives expert and Pittsburgh Combat Club founder David Holzer. His mission is to help each student feel safe, strong and in-control.
