Participants will learn things that they can currently do to greatly increase their odds against being targeted by predators as well as practice time tested and proven tactics to escape and evade the most common criminal attempts at abduction.
The seminar is ideal for all women who wish to inform and prepare themselves to become harder targets (not victims) in their day to day lives and especially for high school and college aged women, those traveling abroad, and those who often work or workout alone or isolated from the general public.

INSTRUCTOR: Luis Gutierrez is a lifelong martial artist and coach, a 3rd degree BJJ Black Belt and a prior MMA/BJJ Gym owner of 20 years.

Even with boxing gloves on, I knew no Police Defensive Tactics Instructor would allow that amount of force to be used in training. Mainly because the students would not be able to defend themselves from it, as current DT’s training is of little use with aggressive noncompliant offenders.
