D.A.R. is a program of realistic, self-defense tactics and techniques. It is a comprehensive course for women that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance, while progressing to the basics of hands-on defense training.
The D.A.R. System is dedicated to teaching women defensive concepts and techniques against various types of assault by using easy, effective and proven self-defense tactics. The system of realistic defense will provide the knowledge to make an educated decision about resistance.
Eight hour basic physical defense class.
Using the DAR concept, sudents will be involved in a discussion of risk reduction strategies, date rape, continuum of survival, defensive strategies and the basic principles of defense.
Participating students will begin the process of hands-on training. We also discuss the pros and cons of defensive weaponry, how to develop a defensive mindset, understanding offensive and defensive postures, recognizing vulnerable locations and using personal weapons.
Participating students will continue the process of hands-on training. The techniques used by DAR Systems are based on simple gross motor skills and are developed to the point that they become instinctual through repetition.
Students will have the opportunity to use these techniques in dynamic impact training by striking padded equipment held by the instructors. All techniques target a single attacker.
Students will then participate in “simulated assault” scenarios with DAR instructors, who along with participants, wear state-of-the-art protective gear specifically designed for this training. Women have the opportunity to use their skills in a safe training environment
