BACK OFF! in the news...keeping Women SAFE!
Read more below...
BACKOFF! - A real world, hands-on, self defense program specifically designed for women that has been taught here in Illinois since 1984. The program cost is normally $199.
Kevin Sogor has over 35 years of teaching experience, and has modeled this program from the most successful short course program in Europe, used to teach over 50,000 nurses.
BACKOFF! is an effective and easy to learn group of techniques and principles that, combined with keys of awareness, will help prepare any woman for the unthinkable - a physical attack. While no program can cover every eventuality, BACKOFF! was developed to provide as many of these tools as possible in a short time. The program is divided into four modules, including a new ADVANCED module, each 90 minutes long. Each module is based on a theme.
The Basics Module teaches defenses from the most common types of attacks as well as a series of highly effective techniques against the worst possible type of attack.
Out on the Town
This module concentrates on day to day defenses from attacks that may occur out in public going on day to day errands, including protecting a friend.
Covering techniques for defense in tight spaces, when cornered, or even in the work place. Also added to this module is a new Active Shooter Response component.
A special module designed to teach striking, kicking, ground fighting, and the mental preparedness it takes to stop a confrontation dead in its tracks.
Improvised Defense - Special Module
This unique module is designed to teach how to fight with improvised weapons...common items found throughout the home that will save your life when the need arises! Also included is a second component involving Active Shooter Response. This is a special module offered for only a short time and will be offered every Sunday from 4PM - 5:30PM.
The techniques in each module are designed to focus on the most common types of attacks and the best defense against these attacks.
Modules can be taken in any order, and classes are offered five times per week, but other class times may soon be added as the attendence increases.
Sunday 11:00AM - 12:30PM
Sunday 4:30PM - 5:30PM
The class is ongoing, and can be started at any time. Your purchase does not expire, and you can take the modules at your convenience.
The same Module is offered for an entire calendar week to make attending the module easier.
