Street Defense - The Fundamental 8

The course sequence follows in the order below, starting with Foundation and continuing sequentially until 8-weeks later we end with Weapons before starting all over again. The only suggested prerequisite is your first course should be the Foundation session. In addition to being offered in the regular 8-week rotation, Foundation course (a.k.a. Class X) is offered every Saturday.

Note that while we suggest starting with Class X, you may join in the week with all the other students as your subsequent order is not important (e.g.: your 2nd class can be Week 4, Trapping Range and you could continue on and end at Striking).

The initial class [Class X] is 2hrs, and $42.50. Each subsequent class is 1hr and $30.00.   If you'd prefer to sign up for all 8 up front, it is $235.

You can sign up by clicking the yellow "Book Now" button on the right side of this website (simplest).

While we recommend completing all 8-classes, you are not required to complete them all. Each class may be pay-as-you-go, though we offer a reduced price for the combined package (see above).

  • Tues :   7:15 - 8:15pm

We're Toronto-based, providing private self-defense training service across the city. Now, we are offering core group sessions based on our experiences. Our group training is currently at a location in midtown -- Eglinton & Avenue. 

The style is a combination of multiple styles, a mixed martial art. Specifically:  boxing, kickboxing, brazilian jiu-jitsu, aikido, karate, judo, muay thai, and select movements from a multitude of others. Taking what works for street, discarding what doesn't. Note that our program is specifically geared towards no-holds barred fighting with street rules (i.e. truly no rules).  

We teach the foundation in survival.
