The techniques presented are simple, practical, effective and proven methods from principles of DanZan Ryu JuJitsu (DZR) and can be accomplished by anyone with little or no previous training Each class is 40% Assault Prevention lecture and 60% Self-Defense and Self-Protection techniques. Self-protection consists of methods to keep you from hurting yourself, and self-defense emphasizes techniques to use in the event of an attack. Training is done in a controlled, safe, slow, environment until the techniques can be performed realistically. Realism is a key component of learning Self-Defense correctly. You will learn how to assess, avoid and escape many situations. You will learn how to settle fear and panic with proper breathing. You will learn to use assertive voice control. Also included in the course are question and answer sessions, lectures followed by hands-on examples, a field trip into a parking lot for hands on training in vehicles.
"Professor Steve McLaughlin makes learning assault prevention fun and informative! He shows you ways to prevent yourself from being overwhelmed by an attacker...30% lecture and 70% practice...it\'s a single 4 hour session with breaks. It is the best 4 hours you will spend! Lots of good information and tips on things to be aware of."
There is no substitute for realistic practice of actual self-defense techniques. You must practice until the moves can be done without thinking.
Professor H.S. Okazaki founded the DanZan Ryu JuJitsu Women’s Self Defense System in Hawaii in the early 1900s. A martial arts master famous world wide for this unique and encompassing system of self-defense. His early Women Self-Defense Course (Fujin Goshin no Maki) developed in the 1920s was one of the very first in the world. His training course for the Honolulu Police Department in 1929 is still a model used to train Police Departments around the world today.
Professor Okazaki was equally famous as a gifted massage therapist treating such people as President Franklin Roosevelt. His massage and healing legacy continues to this day.
