Improvised Weapons and Defense Workshop

March 24, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$35 – $40

two men in hand to hand combat

Due to various factors ranging from personal beliefs to state law may prohibit some from carrying a firearm or weapon for personal defense, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have options!

This workshop introduces simple and effective movements that are easy to learn, retain, and adapt. We also focus on tools that are readily available and legal to carry anywhere. From pens to frying pans, we can show you what to use and how to use it.

Come see why we’re the Number One rated defensive training company in Central Illinois!
