What we're about

Free self-defense lessons for all skill levels and inter-disciplinary martial arts practice for all interested persons. Learn something, teach something.

Lessons start with the legalities of self-defense and use-of-force in Canada and progress from there.

Feel free to participate in what you feel comfortable with and sit out what you don't. This is a supportive group, and all skill levels and abilities are welcome.

If you're experienced in martial arts or law enforcement and are interested in sharing knowledge with folks, let me know. My hope would be to eventually have other folks lead sessions on days I'm not available and pass on these skills.
