Dynamics of Personal Defense (Fee-Based-Workshop)

Presenter - Steve Tarani

Bad things happen to good people - especially if you’re not prepared for it. Yes, Situational Awareness is your best defense, but what if you didn’t hear it, see it or smell it coming and are faced with very real danger of physical violence? In this light physical activity, hands-on learning workshop, you will be trained in: the three critical components needed to control any physical altercation, how to immediately gain the tactical advantage against single or multiple attackers, whether you’re armed or unarmed, and most importantly how to get yourself and your loved ones out of harms’ way and to safety unharmed. Join ex-CIA personal protection expert Steve Tarani in this easy-to-learn, professional training workshop and gain the skills and confidence you need to defend against a real-world active threat! No previous skills or experience needed – participants must be over 18 years of age.
