Welcome to VITAL Self-Defense​!

If you are looking for a HIGHLY effective yet accessible self-defense system to train in, you have certainly found the right place.

The vast majority of martial arts schools don't teach violence/criminology-based self-defense.  Most schools focus on perfecting techniques for sports competitions, and making championship winning athletes.


This is in stark contrast to the primary focus of VITAL Self-Defense, which is the acquisition of actual life-saving abilities that can be used in the chaos of violence to save innocent people's lives.

Other more "hardcore" combatives training places also tend to over-emphasize "hardening warriors" and grueling exercises and drills.  They tend to be overly macho and/or domineering in tone.

At VITAL Self-Defense, we aren't interested in "hardening warriors" and tearing students down, we are 100% focused on building are students up, and reminding them of their own inner strength and abilities to prevail!
