Former Police Officer and Owner of Code 5 Fitness Tricia Dong teams with highly acclaimed Martial Arts instructors (Brent Matsuda, Todd Smith, or Edwin Tam, depending on availability) to provide co-ed or women-only workshops on how to defend against and survive a violent personal attack. On the street, there is no ring or cage, there are no referees, and you cannot tap out. With no medals for second place in a real-world attack, there is only one winner, and in this workshop, it shall be YOU. Tricia will show you what to do to ensure you have the mental preparedness, self-confidence, and physical capabilities to defeat your attacker. 


Men – this is a great opportunity to learn some practical self-defence in a non-competitive, non-intimidating environment. Emphasis will be on natural body movement, not memorization of complicated systems of attack and defence so the student won’t be overwhelmed with too many moves in the toolbox. 


Ladies – if you have ever said to yourself, “It won’t happen to me”, after seeing reports of another “Stranger Danger!” personal attack on the news, you are WRONG. It DOES happen to nice people like yourself, it CAN happen to you, but there IS something you can do about it! If you are prepared, you can avoid becoming another crime statistic on the six o’clock news.
