We all have the right to defend ourselves, to defend our families and to defend others from personal attacks.
But do you have the skills?
Not only is it necessary to know how to physically defend yourself, it is also equally important to be mentally and emotionally prepared.
Dave Pike, owner and founder of Personal Defense Connection, discovered that there are people who are interested in basic self defense and not a five year black belt course. Dave is not against martial arts. In fact, he studied Aikido for many years and really liked it. But it isn't for everyone. So, he started Personal Defense Connection and created his signature "Simply Safer" self defense classes.
The "Simply Safer" series teaches practical, proven and effective defensive techniques. The classes are filled with information about awareness and avoidance, how to get the right mindset to be able to defend yourself if necessary, and what to do after a violent encounter - all in a friendly and considerate atmoshphere. These classes are for men and woman of all shapes, sizes, fitness levels and ages (16 and over).
We understand that no one chooses to be a victim. But we believe that the more you know, the more you can avoid situations where you may become one. Yes, we should all be able to go anywhere without fear of being attacked. But that just isn't the world we live in anymore.

Research has proven that without proper training, your ability to defend yourself decreases when your body goes into the "fight or flight" mode during a threatening situation. PDC will not only teach you effective techniques, but will also increase your confidence in your ability to effectively handle the situation. You will learn how to be mentally, emotionally and physically prepared to defend yourself.
