Self-Defense Training

Self-Defense Training - no time to study a fighting system for years but want the benefits of self-protection? These components from Mantis Boxing are streamlined for quick, effective training that can give you life saving skills in hours.

  • Core Defense - Get empowered and capable of defending yourself with easy to remember self-defense techniques and movements. Learn how to protect yourself from the most common types of attacks on the street.
  • Ground Defense - Succeed when a stronger, heavier attacker has you pinned on the ground. Use physics and leverage to control the situation so you can defend yourself and succeed.
  • Scenarios Training - A variety of scenarios pitted against our padded aggressors to see if you can get out and win the day.

  • Kicking - capitalize on not only the power of the legs, but using them in conjunction with the hands to maximize your effectiveness. Learn the unique kicks found in Mantis Boxing that can devastate an opponent, how to generate more force, and our kicking principles to help you use them effectively. 
  • Basic Footwork Training - mobility, stability, and structure are a crucial component of Mantis Boxing. Learn the basic footwork, drills, training methods to improve your angles of attack/defense, and your functional movement.
  • Blocking - having amazing strikes is definitely a benefit in combative arts, but if we can't block that incoming punch, our game plan is lacking in a big way. Learn a simple, and highly effective blocking system that can keep pace with the modern fighting systems of the world.
  • Ground Defense - sometimes we end up on the ground. Without spending years studying Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, there are principles and skills you can learn to keep you safe while on the ground, and how and when to get back to your feet.
  • Hook, Clinch, Pluck - the three preliminary keywords of Mantis Boxing. Learn how to use the mantis hook, and get to the clinch where you can gain control of your opponent. The pluck comes next to setup some amazing takedowns, and submissions. This is a must have workshop for anyone interested in using the amazing grappling component of Mantis Boxing.
