Self Defense Classes that Prepare You for Anything

The truth is, when you have to defend yourself, you won’t be in a cage or a ring wearing protective gloves. Our classes teach tactical self defense for use in real-life scenarios. Knowing exactly how to respond if you are threatened with an attack can be the difference between life and death. Through rigorous hand to hand combat scenarios, our self defense classes allow students the chance to work together, not as opponents. We’ll boost your survival instincts so that you can be successful if you ever find yourself in danger.


As a lifetime student and instructor, Sifu Ryan Scott has seen the same transformation in the lives of his students as he has experienced in his own life. His passion for practice is surpassed only by his love for teaching martial arts. From young children to full-grown adults, his teachings of Kung Fu and Tai Chi have given many individuals the opportunity to become better martial artists, spiritual seekers, and just better people.
