Upcoming Events

I've been quiet here recently. Busy. New baby, plus a lot of other stuff. I'll get back on it soon.

In the meantime, I'm doing a bunch of seminars around the Boston area. Details here.


March 28th:
Women's Self-Defense/Rape Prevention
Integrated Martial Arts, Westborough MA
Looking at Rape Prevention through the lens of the PDR/SPEAR program. We'll be discussing some psychology/mindset concepts, awareness, verbal strategies, and basic physical tactics. I'm co-teaching this one with Bill Duggan, a local police officer, who will be bringing some insights not only into how to deal with the assault, but how to communicate with law enforcement after the fact.

Open to women ages 13 and up (though younger girls can attend with parental consent).

April 19th: Fundamentals of Personal Saftey
Connors MMA, Norwood, MA
My standard PDR Intro course.

This class will flow from mind-set, to contact, to confrontation, using the PDR’s unique Three D's model: Detect, Defuse, Defend. Using our Non-Violent Postures™ you will learn how to identify pre-contact cues, position for interception, and convert the startle-flinch using the world's first behaviorally based self-defense method - the S.P.E.A.R. System™.

This course will not interfere with any prior training and can be used to augment your personal toolbox. This course is open to students of all levels ages thirteen and up. Students should wear comfortable clothing that they can move and exercise in.

April 25th: 
Groundfighting Fundamentals
Integrated Martial Arts, Westborough, MA

This seminar is going to focus on fundamental strategies for dealing with an assault that has gone to the ground. How does the PDR/SPEAR apply to a groundfight? What's the distinction between grappling and groundfighting, and why does it matter for self-defense? This is going to be a pretty physical course, but no prior training or experience is required.
Open to anyone ages 13 and up.

Everyday Self-Defense: Safety at the ATM, Car, and Home.
Integrated Martial Arts, Westborough, MA

This should be a fun one. We're going to be talking about three common places where people get attacked, the kinds of attack that happen there, and three dimensional strategies for preventing or dealing with those kinds of attacks.
