About Back Off!


What is BACK OFF!


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.
