We new friends!


  • My 6 and 4 year old recently started training with Seacoast Warriors. They both look forward to go to class and learned a lot in the short few weeks they started, I highly recommend Seacoast Warriors.

  • Seacoast Warriors has been a wonderful place for my son to learn martial arts. The instructors are great and have so much patience when teaching little kids. My son even had a birthday party there and it was awesome! Martial arts has taught my son to respect himself and others and he has more confidence in himself at home and school.

  • We loved having Dana come over to France it was a real treat! Not only did Dana do the BEST Knife Defense Seminar I have ever seen in 20+ years of training, but he covered Healing on the last day of the seminar! Dana even got our wives up on the floor to demonstrate the Pressure Healing techniques like; Headaches, Back aches and many more.... The wives are still asking for him to come back!

Seacoast Warriors Self-Defense

Self Defense Classes

One of the greatest fears that an average individual has is to be mugged or assaulted, whether in public or private. On a regular day, this is not something that really “plagues the mind,” we usually just don’t think it will happen to us! But law enforcement authorities rightly encourage taking safety precautions in order to avoid the risk of having a criminal confrontation on the streets. Martial arts are a fun, popular, and proven effective regimen to prepare yourself for the threats you might face on a regular basis.

Class drills with partners and safety “dress rehearsals” in practical combat scenarios will heighten your awareness, agility, and skills in avoiding, deterring, escaping, and winning against a potential physical attack by someone stronger or larger than yourself. However, as much as one tries, there are always situations that one cannot anticipate. To perform the techniques with maximum speed and impact, one must develop physical fitness and body conditioning through consistent practice and preferably cross-training. Setting and reaching health goals on schedule is integral to the training process.

Martial arts training for self-defense is learned in the military and law enforcement communities, and fortunately today, this popular, beneficial, educational, athletic, and safety-focused pursuit is affordable and accessible to the general public in most countries throughout the world.

Self-defense training is highly situational in that it teaches you to deal with particular scenarios. For example, an individual will learn to defend against a knife-wielding assailant trying to cut them (with safety measures in place of course), in a variety of ways: whether the attack comes from front or back, how the blade is held, the method and velocity of the attacks, and so on. However, in order to perform a disarming or immobilizing technique, one has to be physically fit with high levels of mental acuity, core strength, speed, agility, and self-confidence. Being prepared for a wide variety of “real life” scenarios requires a special kind of physical capability. Martial arts training is the ideal way to build it up.
