The Rapid Defense Program at Water's Edge

Each program begins the first Saturday of the month at 10:45 am.


The Scenario Training techniques introduce students to different situations an individual may find themselves in. We will set up specific scenes for students to respond including physical barriers. This is a more advanced technique that will be introduced after students have completed at least one full 4-week program.










It’s not possible to see all attacks in advance. And just because you get knocked down or you are already sitting on the ground doesn’t mean you are out of the fight. The Ground Defense techniques are designed for those situations.

Common Misconceptions/Questions:

I’m not sure I’m in shape for self-defense. 
This program is not physically demanding. It’s designed for all fitness levels. There are no push-ups, no sit-ups, no exercise involved. It’s straight up techniques. 
I only want to learn with women. 
We hear you. You can elect to only partner with women.  And your main instructor is Sifu Lisa Kim. She gets it. 
I don’t have the time. 
One hour a week is all that is necessary. We use fast, efficient techniques that you will learn quickly. There’s not a better investment of your time out there. 
I’m not a ‘martial artist’ type. 
You don’t need to be. (And to be honest, there is no martial artist type.) Anyone at any age and fitness level can learn to defend themselves. Let us show you what you’re capable of.

Why should I take self-defense lessons?
For women:
Women who take self-defense courses are less likely to experience unwanted sexual contact.
Read the article.

For men:
Although self-defense courses are often aimed at women, men need to learn self-defense as well. Research indicates that men are more likely to be the target of violent attacks and be more likely to get involved in physical altercations.
Both men and women experience increases in confidence and self-esteem through defense training.  At Water’s Edge, we genuinely hope you never have to use the skills we teach. But if you ever do, we want you to be ready.

Still Not Sure?
