Self-Defense Intensive-Series

The UFC has arranged a special series of self-defense training.  The series is made up of three classes for a progressive experience with each building on the techniques learned in the prior class.  These classes must be taken in order.  Based on Tactical Hapkido and Systema, the concepts taught in this program are focused on application in real life, “street” self-defense scenarios and situational awareness.  Effectiveness is based on technique, not on size or strength.  Good technique takes practice: the reason for the three-class series.
