Develop Your Warrior Spirit

Self Defense classes can prepare you for battle, both physically and MENTALLY. 


The goal of self defense is not to win a fight. It is to survive and prosper without injury or damage.

Nothing feels better than knowing you can take care of yourself mentally, financially, and physically. However for a lot of people, the physical part is just exercise. Being able to protect yourself in all situations is a confidence booster as much as it is a reassurance. A reassurance that can only be gained through any form of self defense classes. Today, when people think about self defense classes, they tend to think about women and children. However, self defense classes  are for everyone: women, men and children. At American Family Martial Arts, we provide self defense information not only during regular classes but hold self defense community classes during the year.

What American Family Marital Arts Teaches


Upper Body Strikes

This part focuses on blocking an attackers strike, and STRIKING the attacker in head and upper body.


Lower Body Strikes

This part focues on striking the ribs and lower body of an attacker. It is a myth that striking the groin should be the first attack. Studies show that striking a knee or applying an elbow to the ribs is more likely to catch an attacker off guard.


Situational Awareness

This part includes paying attention to your surroundings, knowing your exit path and practicing "what if" situations.

I would highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn not just self-defense, but the science and knowledge behind maximizing their body’s potential in high-stress situations. Thank you Tullier family, for empowering women in our community.

Jamie Brown

I took this class because I wanted to know more about self defense and learn different techniques. And everything I’ve learned, I’ve done successfully so this has been beyond my expectations and I’m more than happy that I’ve come.
