Our signature event is a multi-style training camp and professional self-defense instruction conference, held every summer, usually at a different college campus every year. Attendees come from all over the United States, Canada, and beyond. We come:
Attendees ages 6 and up are welcome! We offer a multi-generational training experience.
Many classes are open to all ages, while others are specifically designed for Young Martial Artists (ages 6-12) and/or Teens (ages 13-18). Our young students often design a demonstration for the performance on Saturday night.
(Attendees 12 and under must be accompanied to classes by a guardian.)
Take all or part of this comprehensive series of skill-building self-defense classes, taught by NWMAF-certified self-defense instructors. Learn how to escape grabs, fight from the ground, defend against weapons, and much more. No experience necessary!
If you're interested in teaching self-defense, there are plenty of classes designed for self-defense instructors.
Instructors are selected from among the best martial artists around the world. Many have decades of experience and all are committed to teaching excellence.
There's something for all ages, all skill levels, and all exertion levels, whether your focus is martial arts, self-defense, healing arts, or all of the above!
