Benefits of Model Mugging Self Defense: The First Adrenaline Stress Training Program
Model Mugging developed Adrenaline Stress Training that prepares your mind, body, and spirit to channel fear into effective energy to incapacitate an assailant. This self defense program was taught as Powerful Choices Self Defense for many years in Seattle, and later as Take Charge Self Defense.
You will learn how the powerful choice to transform your fear that accompanies an attack into anger and unleash it into empowerment.
Through role model mastery, the Model Mugging program provides the best self defense options to impact Seattle. Why the name Model Mugging®?
Strike full-force against our padded assailant!
Female and male instructor teams work with students to ensure a safe and supportive environment. Our female instructor’s role model and coach students while our male instructors are trained padded assailant models various types of criminal attacks.
Each student engages in realistic, but safe fighting scenarios by striking the padded assailant full throttle and without the limitations and rules governing combative sports. Model Mugging provides a comprehensive curriculum for women that impact Seattle self defense options.
This is just one of the many empowering factors designed within our Basic self defense course.
Learn to Win Without Fighting!
Knowing how to fight is a critical aspect of self-protection. The best self defense is possessing knowledge, experience and skills to avoid the common conditions that attract assailants to target who they perceive as easier victims.
Very few of our graduates have to defend themselves because they can recognize the tactics criminals use and then move to safety before an assault can start.
Powerful Choices in Martial Science
Learn Self Defense in a Weekend through Martial Science. Our self defense program was taught as Powerful Choices Self Defense for many years in Seattle, and later as Take Charge Self Defense.
We researched thousands of crimes against women, and we also apply proven teaching methodologies that allow students to learn how to protect themselves as we train the mind-body-spirit to respond effectively if assaulted.
This is NOT a martial arts course but instead addresses the dynamics of assaults against women and the specific needs when training women to effectively defend themselves.
