One Step Ahead

Welcome to The Self Defense Channel

Where our Mission is To build confidence and create public awareness about the reality and effectiveness of self-defense training. To share current, responsible approaches, and methods for self-defense training. To provide information to empower citizens to take steps to continue to learn and apply self-defense in their lives for safety and peace of mind. The Self Defense Channel seeks to provide information without bias to age, gender, race, physical limitations, level of experience, or political affiliation to all those want to educate and decide for themselves how to best apply effective self-defense techniques in their lives (while recognizing there are many differing approaches that may suit different populations and personal preferences).

What is Self Defense?

The ability to avoid conflict and/or to adequately defend yourself in a conflict.

How are we different?

We are not just about guns & Holsters. Those are tools. We are not just about kicking and punching bags, like in Tae Kwondo or Karate – these are techniques.

Self Defense is More

Self Defense includes The Psychology of the Bad People, Situational Awareness, the benefits of Scenario Training, and learning from people who have dealt with harrowing life threatening experiences.

Period. “Life Changing” and “Eye Opening.” When attackers ask you to come with them, or “Get in the Car!”… It’s not because they want to take you to dinner or to go to a movie… Self Defense prepares people for any type of “Bad Guy” assault… Verbal, Mental, Physical, Intimidation, Weapons, Multiple Attackers, By Bringing awareness in these troubling times, it is our hopes that more people will begin taking care of the most valuable person in the world – Themselves – by getting Self Defense Training.
