Private Self Defense Lessons

One on one training with a personal instructor is by far the fastest method of learning SKS self-defense, allowing the instructor to focus on what is wanted and needed by each individual student, this enables the student to gain confidence in the  application of both their mental and physical abilities, correcting any misconceptions of self-defense and its application much more rapidly.  

 

Private lessons are also a great way to learn at your own pace and at your own schedule. Private Lessons are specifically designed to meet your individual needs and to help you maximize the benefits of your training. 

Benefits of SKS Personal Training.

 

  • The focus is entirely on YOU, and what you want to achieve in your self-defense training.

  • You receive the one on one personal attention from the instructor that may not always be possible in a group class setting.

  • It provides you with the opportunity to correct movements, learn faster, and turn your weaknesses into strengths.

  • Generally speaking, private clients progress many times faster in their training and develop a more thorough understanding of the SKS  philosophies, techniques and tactics.

CANCELLATIONS AND RESCHEDULING

We all have busy schedules and sometimes things come up that prevent us from doing one thing or another. In the event that you need to cancel or reschedule a private lesson, contact your instructor at least 24 hours in advance to avoid forfeit of the lesson fee. 

 

RIGHT OF REFUSAL

The instructor has the right to refuse any student. The instructor does not have to communicate the reason for the refusal. The most common reasons for refusal are a demonstrated lack of respect, maturity, control and responsibility, intent to cause injury, violent criminal history or violent tendencies, arriving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, intent to use training for unlawful purposes, etc. 

 

Training is provided for self-defense purposes only.

 

REFUNDS

Refunds will only be provided if the instructor chooses to withhold any further training under the Right of Refusal. In this case, a refund will be provided for the remaining unused time, less the time booked for any lesson that has started, or would be starting.

 

TRAVEL EXPENSES AND FEES

Additional charges may apply for training locations outside of the El Segundo/Manhattan Beach area.

          

Corporate & Business Safety & Self-Defense Training

These workshops are provided as single experience or continuous monthly/bi-monthly programs to groups such as corporate employees, hospital staff, and business groups, who seek basic self-defense training, advice and strategies. Take home literature is provided at these workshops in order to reference, maintain familiarity with, and practice what has been taught. 

The key to effective crime prevention and self-defense is understanding how the criminal mind operates, once you know how the criminal mind really operates and what they need in order to succeed, prevention and avoidance are easy. SKS training gives you this ability and with very little effort on your part, you can take the preventative measures needed to avoid becoming a victim. 

Successful self-defense does not come from having the training to physically defending yourself from a violent attack, success comes from not allowing yourself to be in a situation where you would have to.

Our most popular seminars are the  "SKS Empowerment” and our "SKS Advanced Self Defense Techniques And Tactics" series. 

The "SKS Empowerment  seminars are 2 hours in length consisting of a lecture on Environmental Awareness, Conflict Avoidance, De-Escalation and Breakaway Self-Defense Techniques with group participation.

SKS Women's Self-Defense Course 

This course is specifically for women who seek a broader knowledge of self-defense other than that of a single workshop. This course is a 2 hr duration 1 day a week for 4 weeks. This is a highly educational course with emphasis on “SKS Advanced Strategies and Techniques” and the "Defensive Lifestyle Mindset".

 

By combining SKS self-defense philosophies and the reality of personal experience, students quickly develop what we term in SKS as the Defensive Lifestyle Mindset (DLM). Once developed this new mindset creates certainty, builds confidence, and gives women the ability to pre-detect, evaluate, avoid and take the appropriate survival actions necessary in a given situation.

 

Self-defense training is more than just kicking and punching, SKS Self-Defense addresses this with Three Principles. 

 

  1. Educating the Mind:  This helps to identify and recognize early warning signals, understand the attacker's mindset, how attackers operate, and the strategies to defeat them.

  2. Educating the Body:  SKS teaches effective and easy to learn retainable self-defense techniques that maximize damage while not relying on strength. 

  3. Empowering the Spirit SKS training exponentially raises the self-esteem and confidence levels needed to ensure future personal safety.

SKS Tactical Teens Girls Self-Defense 

This program is geared specifically toward teen and pre-college girls. These classes put emphasis on learning the Soft Skills (mental training) of self-defense such as environmental awareness, conflict recognition, and avoidance skills, as well as the Hard Skills (physical) of self-defense such as breakaway techniques, striking techniques, and ground escape techniques. 

 

We at SKS recognize that for teens to achieve maximum results in SKS self-defense training it is important for them to feel safe, have fun, laugh, and be relaxed while confronting this serious subject, our instructors make sure that they have an enhancing positive experience. 

Combining the above elements with our SKS self-defense philosophies and personal experience, students ultimately develop what we term in SKS as the Defensive Lifestyle Mindset (DLM). Once developed this new mindset creates certainty, builds confidence, and gives teens the ability to pre-detect, evaluate, make the correct decisions, avoid, and take the appropriate survival actions necessary for the situation.

As stated in our adult programs, Teens Self-defense training is more than just kicking and punching, again SKS Self-Defense addresses this with Three Principles.
