Develop Real World Self-Defense Tactics


Get Vicious is a reality based self-defense program for women ages sixteen and up. This program will teach you animalistic tactics (rip, tear, bite) that will help you defend yourself in the real world from a violent attack. Our goal is not to teach you technique, but to have you walk away feeling empowered, knowing what to do, and how to protect yourself if you are ever attacked.

* All our programs are tailored for every individual: Beginners to Advanced!

Types of Tactics

Straight Punch & Palm Heel Strikes

The hand leads the motion. Make sure that the elbow stays down while the shoulder and hips turn forward, keeping the chin down as you punch (rolling the shoulder up as you hit the target). At the end of the punch, the fist rotates to about 45 degrees (varies by individual). The striking surface will also vary by the type of punch (fist, palm heel, eye strike). Always punch through the target (not just the surface) and recoil immediately!

Outside "360" Defenses

For outside 360 defenses, there are four things you need to remember: wrist-to-wrist, blade of your arm, bend in your elbow, and put weight in your defense. 360 is used as a term to reference a circle from the top of your head to just below your groin. Do not think defense, think offense. Train to defend without moving the feet (as though you are late). If you are early, you can always burst in. Look at the center of the attackers chest, and do not follow each strike with your eyes. Use your peripheral vision and react to the movement.

Choke from the Front Defense

Being choked from the front is never a fun position to be in. To defend, form your hands like hooks and reach in deep (up to your wrists) near the thumbs of the attacker for maximum leverage. Pluck out and slightly backward in one fluid motion (think speed, not strength). Tuck your chin as you pluck and at the same time, make a front kick to the groin. Send the whole leg and make contact with whatever you can (toe, instep, shin, knee, etc.). While finishing the pluck, trap the hands to your shoulders/chest as you counterattack. Always continue with additional combatives to neutralize the threat.

Front Kick Regular & Vertical Target

Swing the leg and hip forward with the knee bent. As the kick develops, unfold the knee and make sure that the hip travels forward. Keep the hands up and point your toes while striking with instep or shin (shin preferred). Always recoil into your fighting stance after making contact. You may lean forward if need be, but control your foot rather than just dropping it down. Kick through the target and do not just kick the surface. Strike through to break!

Self-Defense Advantage

Learn How Attacks Happen

Expect to have an in depth discussion on the date rape drug, college rapes, domestic violence and attacks on street. Each story has a real face behind the story from a woman or girl who experienced a violent encounter. These stories will help you recognize domestic violence or a possible violent attack before it happens. We will instill the right to fight in you and these stories help paint that picture.

Learn Situational Awareness & Prevention

We will dissect each attack timeline from the beginning to the end. This will give you insight and a more heightened sense of awareness. We will also have a discussion on improvised weapons & handguns with stories from women that have warmed up to handguns and feel safer today. A lot of what I teach is what happened when I met with the women and girls as part of the rebuild from their violent encounter.

Easy to Perform Tactics

We get physical with upper body & lower body tools and aggressive with the targets. We work our intuition and this aggression to get vicious! After discussing different scenarios, walking you through the the attack timeline, then we get physical from start to finish and teach you easy to remember moves that will help save your life.

Reality & Scenario Based Training

Each workshop is part of a three series attack scenario (back attack, front attack, ground attack). We repeat each attack scenario every three months and introduce new tactics every session. Repeating will keep you on your toes and give you the confidence needed to protect yourself if an attack were to occur.

Your trial begins with an initial consultation.Let us walk you through our process to show you how you will get results.
