Programs, classes, and seminars are designed for you and your lifestyle needs; such as Civilian (adults & mature juniors), Law Enforcement, Military, or Special World Travel. Regardless of which you choose, training is not a White Collar Black Belt Factory or 'McDojo' child care. Student safety and real results are a priority.
Instead of being one of the many faces in a large class going through the motions; semi-private classes offer a focused and faster learning environment with two to three times more quality training for the students.
Cost of instruction varies depending on type and length of each program.
