Avoid conflict in the first place and keep in control when conflict is unavoidable -- when most people mentally and physically shut down. C.O.B.R.A.™ is an eye-opening and rewarding experience for students.

Self-Defense Myth-Busting

Amazingly, from kindergarten through high school and college, we are never required to learn self-defense. We then dedicate ourselves to developing our careers.

Most of us, therefore, go our entire life never considering self-defense until the very moment we need it. And by then it's too late.

The myths we see on tv and in movies make up the core of most people's training. We think having a cell phone or a firearm, for example, is all the protection we need. We are wrong.

C.O.B.R.A.™ is an eye-opening experience.
