Physical Targets/Effects – 2 sessions (3 Hours) $150.00

You are confronted with one option: fight for your life or die. You’ve seen it many times in movies – the palm strike driving the nose into the brain, the attacker dropping to the ground, dead.

Appropriate use of systemic and structural targets can offer realistic options for self-defense or escaping an attack.
