Adult Beginning Self-Defense Training

Acquiring pristine skills for self defense constructively provides a sense of empowerment, distinction, and, most importantly, protection. There are countless karate and martial arts facilities in the bay area; however, it is arguable that karate skills will successfully crush an attack from a seasoned street thug. It's safe to say that most karate instructors have never even been in a street fight, nor possess the ability to realistically identify a gang member.

With over 23 years of law enforcement-related careers, and successful defense from numerous accounts of assault, Joe Grasso might be considered to some as both a learned, and real-life, expert in defense from violent crime. While karate skills are valuable in their own right, it takes a much different mind-set to prepare for real-life threat.

The experience that Joe Grasso has attained through years of training and personal experience has initiated an Adult Self Defense Training Program. This semi-private class is designed to prepare students for violent encounters on the street and keen identification of life-threatening predators. Further, knowledge of territorial and behavioral triggers will be instilled, so you can avoid a threat altogether. This is not just another karate class.....this is much more!


It is in your best interest to be aware that there are NO GUARANTEES with a real-life attack; however, we teach the real-life techniques that that can, and will, EFFECTIVELY SAVE YOUR LIFE!!

Danger Identification, Gang Identification, Weapon Utilization, Striking, Kicking, Kneeing, Elbowing, Blocking, Pressure Points, Exit Strategy, and Strength & Mental Determination - Put the odds back on your side

Children's Anti-Bullying Program

Did you know that 9 out of 10 children in the United States are bullied, and most parents don't even know?

The purpose of our special children's anti-bullying class is NOT to turn our children into little fighting machines and certainly NOT to turn our good kids into bullies themselves.

is to give our children the TOOLS, KNOWLEDGE, and CONFIDENCE necessary to defend themselves in a time of need when we as parents are not there to care for their safety. Many times these bully encounters happen at our children's school while parents simply are not around to see what is happening.

We also want our children to be able to tell a parent, teacher, or an adult in charge that they are being bullied or harassed by someone without fearing retaliation from the bully. Should an encounter occur, out children will have the ability to better defend themselves and remain safe after completing our program.

Parents must understand that many factors may determine whether out children are successful in defending themselves. Factors such as the age and number of bullies, whether they are armed, their size, strength, maturity level, quickness, athleticism, and their ability to execute a plan can determine an outcome in a defensive action situation. A child having the knowledge to defend himself or herself would only be a benefit rather than a hindrance in the confidence and success of that child.

Children will be exposed to a plethora of training techniques within the Children's Anti-Bullying Program. To learn more about this program, please feel free to view the training plan.
