Private self defense training with Coach Andy Fanslau is a fun, exciting and empowering experience that you'll be glad you invested in! You'll complete your training feeling strong, confident, and powerful. Can you think of a better way to invest your time and resources than to learn to protect yourself and your loved ones from danger?

Please understand that we love martial arts and have HUGE respect for anyone and everyone that puts in the years of time, discipline, and blood-sweat-ann-tears that it takes to become proficient at their art or sport. The MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) , BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu), Western Boxing, and Muay Thai kickboxing guys and gals that we know are ridiculously disciplined, worthy of due respect, and tough - both mentally and physically.

But before you commit to investing your time, energy, and hard-earned money into something "martial arty" (Pure Self Defense included), please take a few minutes to figure out not only what you want to get out of your training but also what you NEED to get out of your training and why you're doing it in the first place. Ask yourself, ''Will the path I'm embarking on facilitate me being able to protect myelf from real-life danger?''.

So, what does 'real' self defense look like on a day-to-day basis?

Kick to the crotch for self defense

90% of your self defense gameplan is having your situational awareness "switched on" and learning to listen to and trust your gut-instinct (i.e. "intuition"). It's not about being paranoid or anxious. In fact, Pure Self Defense is designed to help you begin to OVERCOME paranoia and anxiety.

Every situation is different - the context and environment changes everything. The Pure Self Defense GamePlan empowers you with a new way of seeing things - a new mindset with better crtical thinking and analytic skills so that you don't have to have trained every possible scenario (which is impossible) to be able to know what action to take to succeed and avoid freezing up or panicking.

That's what a gameplan does - it gives you a PLAN and a way to find the best answer to the problem and acheive the best possible outcome.

Being able to recognize danger and defend yourself is an essential life skill like CPR or the Heimlich Maneuver; if a criminal chooses to try to assault you or someone you love it is a medical emergency in which you're likely to be seriously injured or killed if steps are not immediately taken to transform the outcome.

The problem is that most martial arts and self defense programs neglect the most important aspects of how to accomplish this when faced with real-world violence. This is because they are limited to only physical retaliation "techniques", many of which just don’t work in real life against a larger, stronger, enraged opponent intent on smashing your head into pie filling. Pure Self Defense goes deeper than just physical combatives by also addressing the emotional, psychological, and behavioral aspects of protecting yourself effectively.

Pure Self Defense is a hybrid self defence program that is in a constantly in a state of pruning and growth. It is continuously evolving into something better than it was before. It takes the most useful and potent aspects of effective martial systems such as Israeli Krava Maga and other Close Quarters Combatives (CQC) and presents these concepts (e.g. situational awareness and avoidance, lowering value as a potential target, verbal de-escalation, using psychology and behavior in the delivery of combatives, natural movements and reactions in combatives, etc.) in a way that is useful for everyone.

Instead of focusing on situational techniques for SPECIFIC situations, Pure Self Defense gives you concepts, principles, and tools that you can use in ANY situation!

Did you know that most ambush assaults and self-defense situations only take between 3-8 seconds? It's similar to a car accident. And like a car accident, most violece is preventable through situational awareness and intuition.

But when the tool of violence is your only option, it's about getting the job done quickly and decisively without hesitation. And to do that you need a reliable self defense gameplan.

These effective tactics can be used by regular people, police officers, military, doormen, and security guards.

And if you're currently a student of other martial arts then Pure Self Defense's’ principals can easily be added into your existing arsenal of tools to make you an even better martial artist. For those of you that have no martial arts experience, Pure Self Defense is straightforward, unpretentious, and meant to be picked-up quickly without any prior training or special athletic ability.
