Self Defense, Kickboxing, and Ground Survival

Not just a gym...An Education!

There is more to self defense than fighting, yes fighting is a PART of self defense, but is often marketed as being self defense.  We consider ourselves a "school," not necessarily a "gym."  Here are just a few other attributes we teach besides the fighting aspect of self defense:

  • Awareness
  • De-escalation                      
  • Mindset
  • Emotionless aggression
  • Reading people
  • The Law of Self Defense
  • Leadership
  • Confidence
  • Community
  • Good Peer Pressure
  • Theory and Tactics of Survival
  • Statistics
  • Building on your already inherent response to stimuli
  • Building on your strengths while assessing your weaknesses 
  • Understanding stereotypes and generalizations
  • Social Psychology 
  • Fighting with injuries and limitations
  • Multiple Attackers
  • Weapons
  • Using your surroundings
  • How to think, not what to think

Our Philosophy


Why Evolution?  Because every technique is risk vs benefit.  What we teach is how to increase your benefit with your skill set to decrease your risk.  Everyone's risk vs benefit is different.  As you learn new techniques and master them...we want your fighting style to evolve.  You shouldn't be the same fighter you were when you started...that is a complete disservice.  Street fighting cannot be mainstreamed.  We believe in modification!
