It is important all individuals learn to defend themselves using their feet and hands. Why? Because you can't always get to a gun or escape in the event of an aggressive attack. So, at the Arizona School of Traditional Karate in Mesa and Gilbert in the East Valley of Phoenix, we focus on training our students in self-defense as well as in the traditions of karate. Learn to use your hands and feet as weapons of self-defense.
"We had a wonderful time at the self-defense clinic. You people put on a great program". Posted by Tim and Tina.
At the University of Wyoming public clinic, we started the attendees with their elbows. Elbows (and knees) are good weapons as most people can generate a lot of force with little practice. We also taught the attendees to escape wrist grabs, lapel grabs, hair pulls, chokes and more. Some of the enclosed photos demonstrate the techniques taught at the clinic and other photos appear on a couple of blogs as well as on our website.
