EMPOWER SELF-DEFENSE INSTRUCTOR TRAINING Modules 18 - 31


Empower Self Defense Phase 2 teaches methods for loosening and escaping from various types of holds and grabs along with what to do once you are free. You do not learn dozens of different methods and techniques. There are dozens, if not hundreds of ways to react to different types of attacks. I base the instruction on only a few of the most realistic, practical and effective methods for each type of attack. It is easier to learn and perfect a few very simple, but practical, effective techniques than it would be to work on several dozen physical movement patterns. The goal is to provide simple to learn and easy to master tools that provide the most benefit in the quest for enhanced personal safety.
