Ready to learn an effective system
of self-defense?

It can be an overwhelming process.
There’s so much to learn and so much information to sift through!

We get it. We have been learning, training and teaching self-defense since 1983.

We created Mindful Defense™ , an effective system of self-defense for all skill levels. Based on decades of experience and lessons learned from real-world incidents, Mindful Defense™ is comprehensive, effective self-defense that is easy-to-learn, regardless of age, gender or physical ability.

The good news? We’d love to share our knowledge with you and show you how to make effective self-defense an integral part of your lifestyle.
