Hive Combatives: Self Defense

Improve your odds in any violent encounter by learning the fundamentals of personal protection and self defense.  

The Hive Combative system will give you the tools necessary to identify and handle yourself during violent interaction and attack. This 6 hour seminar provides principal based instruction illustrated by tested techniques.

Our method of instruction doesn't just teach you how to attack and counterattack an assailant, we take the time to explain how what we are doing works and give you the opportunity to test it for yourself. This builds confidence and ability while minimising the gaps in the action/ reaction patterns of our neural processes.  

Attendees will receive exposure and explanation about violence, where it comes from, what it does and how we can mitigate its effects in our day to day lives.  Learn to make yourself a hard target and apply the information to conflict situations ranging far beyond violent encounters. This strategy enables individuals to become more proficient by practising the fundamentals in everyday situations.

Topics covered include (but not limited to):

  • Conflict Communication
  • Escape and Evasion
  • Violence and Human Development
  • Thought Process Drilling and Awareness Excercises

Emergency Preparedness 101

Taught By Dax Williams

Our Emergency Preparedness course is taught as an addendum to our Hive Combative curriculum, and covers similar material but as it applies to the security needs we all have, in other aspects of our lives. 

Come to learn or to gain a better understanding of basic needs and how to prepare to accommodate them when disaster strikes, natural or otherwise. We cover the need for skill specific training and the resources to learn them in further courses with us, or on your own. Make time for this course and be educated on topics that could save your skin, and make emergency situations more tolerable for you and your friends/ family before the need to do so is looming. 

Attendees will leave with a game plan and literature to keep that plan fresh and relevant; as well as a mind frame that will leave them with a new depth of understanding. Security of self extends far beyond finances and physical altercations.

Call and reserve your spot today.
