Self Defense Five Week Course

Brooklyn Athletic Club is very excited to be offering ANOTHER Specialty program! We will be conducting a 5 week Self Defense Course. This IS NOT a 5 week crash course on any specific Martial Art, but is specifically designed to help you be aware of your surroundings, create distance , basic blows, and escape with the objective to get you out of a bad situation as quickly as possible. We are looking to break this down as simple as it can be so you can apply your training when you need it most. The first 2 sessions will cover all the striking and escapes, the 3 following weeks we will drill home what you have learned so you can practice on your own and use it when you need it. This course is for both men and women. Street clothes and a good shoe to protect your feet are recommended. 


Many of you might not be aware but our director Larry started out as a Gymnast and then started training in a large variety of Martial arts, Japanese Jujitsu, Judo, Brazilian Jujitsu, Arnis. Everyone of these martial arts has a value. Like many people that enter the martial arts they are looking for self defense. Along his travels he met a very experienced and accomplished martial artist, Carl Cestari. Carl Asked Larry what he was doing this for and the conversation went something like this, " Kid why are you training in this style- Larry to learn how to fight- Carl, you know this stuff will get you killed in a real fight right? - Larry - really- Carl- Try it on me- Larry soon found himself hit really hard and on the ground- Carl, try it again- bang, once again Larry was hit and on the ground- Carl to Larry- you seem like a good kid, come to my house this Saturday and we will talk. Larry spent the next 10 years going to Carl's house and training in the basement with the crew. No rank, nothing just hard training that would work. If you need to do more research- "Gutter Fighting" And The Fairbairn Fighting System.
