Why are self-defense classes so expensive?
- A personal approach
- Great attention to details
- Small classes training for all the students
A. Each student has their set of strengths and weaknesses. A personal approach in all our classes is necessary for your successful training.
B. Since we train you to survive in the most critical and dangerous situations, we pay great attention to detail in every skill and tactic. Therefore, our classes are always hands-on; we do not waste anyone’s time.
C. We keep our classes small to provide individualized training for each student.
D. All instructors continue their training and extend their skills relevant to their teaching. We persist in being on top of our game.
E. We invest time in our students. Our instructors are always available for your questions and concerns.
Why is there an annual agreement?
We know that self-defense training cannot be successful without consistency and commitment. Perfecting skills, developing strength and speed, and building confidence and awareness take time and repetition. Therefore, we do not create an illusion that self-defense can be learned easily and quickly. Instead, we provide you with programs that, over time, cultivate your survival instincts and abilities. It would help if you relied on your muscle memory to act rapidly under stress. You need constant training if you do not want to freeze and panic during an attack.

Why can’t a few basic moves be enough?
A couple of basic moves are not enough to become confident and ready to confront any opponent in any given situation. Each fight and opponent is different, and you need to be able to adjust and modify your movements accordingly in a split second. Striking, covers, ground, and weaponry are only effective when you deliver them with maximum strength, speed, and precision. Also, knowing how to use the environment and available tools increases your chances of winning the fight.
How fast can I learn?
You learn all the time; every practice and class counts. Your instructor explains and demonstrates it during the course, and you can practice it a few times. You continue to practice at home in between classes, even if it is just for 5-10 minutes a day. As a result, you constantly grow and improve your skills. The amount of effort you put into your training determines your performance.
What clothes or uniform do I wear for training?
The training uniform consists of an official DX t-shirt, comfortable jeans/cargo shorts, or other approved physical training clothing prescribed by your local instructor. Proper footwear is critical to your skill development, performance, and safety. Select tennis shoes for cross training that have strong arch supports of
the foot, have a flexible sole and fit properly on your feet.
What equipment do I need to begin training?
You will need only three (4) equipment items to begin training.
- A set of focus mitts
- Knee pads
- Forearms pads
- Elbow pads
Do I need any martial arts experience to begin training?
No. Previous training experience is not required. Having no experience can be an advantage to the student because you have not acquired any habits or methods to unlearn or modify. However, experience in martial arts and fitness can help the student understand and develop specific skills faster.
How long does it take to progress through the ranks?
We look at four critical things from the practitioner to be able to test to the next level.
- Class Attendance
- Knowledge the system
- Class attitude
However, students can advance faster with additional or private training or can train at their pace.
What will I be learning first?
Your first class will include an introduction to the basic cover mechanics and proper footwork in and out of the fight. You gain a deeper mindset along with verbal knowledge of the system itself.
What is a typical training class?
All training sessions begin with a period of stretching, the shadow of the material you have previously learned, and a light spar with your partner at a safe and controlled speed. The purpose of this is to recognize your opponent’s motion and know the range and distance you need to move in or out of the fight.
How long does it take to develop a skill?
Skill development results from physical training, cognitive understanding, and experience. Our programs measure training and proficiency by the hours and dedication you are willing to commit to your workout. Training in this system is an educational journey to develop your rhythm, flavor, and twist of this system.
