Practical Self-Defense-3 (PSD-3)  This course builds on the foundation learned in Practical Self-Defense-2 and is a prerequisite for Practical Self-Defense-4. The combatives you will learn have been adapted and distilled from a variety of martial arts and other fighting sources. This course is 2.5 hours.




Hair pulling, chokes, headlocks, grabs and being forced to the ground are all very common occurrences in a personal violent encounter.
