Gun Defense Class

Every woman has the right to defend herself.

You never know when you’ll find yourself in an unsafe situation; if you do, your ability to safely protect yourself and get away from that moment could make the difference between life and harm or even death. On Friday, June 21, at 6:15pm,  Innovative Martial Arts Academy Instructors, Charles and Katherine Falk, want to help you avoid danger AND give you tools to fight back should DANGER come to you.  This class consists of being able to spot trouble coming and avoiding it.  We also will give you simple, but effective techniques and tips to fight off an attacker and get away!  The cost is ONLY $40 and registration is limited to 20 participants.  Following the classroom portion, we will have a question/answer-social time with light HORS D’OEUVRES and WINE!  Talk about a perfect ending to a really good time!

Why is this self-defense course beneficial?

We’re committed to teaching women of all ages how to defend themselves if the situation ever arises.

  • If any situation were to happen, you will be completely ready to defend yourself! In general, it is important to know a few ways to protect yourself.
  • You will feel more in control of various harmful situations With this knowledge in mind (taught by many professionals in the Raleigh, North Carolina area), you will feel safe and will know what to do and not do in those dangerous situations even before they occur.
  • If you have children, it is another way to protect them and their well-being as well from anything occurring in that current time or the future.
  • And It is a way to feel strong, confident, and empowered!

What will be learned in the class?

We will teach you:

  • Usable and practical skills to ward off an attacker
  • Situational awareness
  • How to Identify Red flags and what to do when you see them
  • Survival tools of self-preservation, Environmental Safety, Victim Avoidance, Predator Strategies

Understanding these tools are great stepping stones of learning self-defense. Seeing red flags in your current environment for example will give you the upper hand. And with the added self-defense, we want you to feel you can take on any situation!

Our Reviews

Great school with wonderful teachers. My daughter has a great time learning and everyone is friendly. There is even an adult class that allowed me to try to see if I liked it and everyone was very patient with me. I am thankful to have my daughter be a part of the Innovative Martial Arts Academy in Wake Forest and know she is benefiting from it in more than one way. It amazes me how fast she is learning and how hard she is trying. They have her trying to develop at her fullest with her mind, body, and spirit. I would recommend this school to anyone interested in martial arts.

This place is great! Charles and his team have fantastic programs for kids. When we started our 3.5 year old son, I didn’t know what to expect. He quickly adapted to the classes and now loves going. Our 2 year old son loves watching and will start as well as soon as he turns 3. Innovative Martial arts also hosted their birthday parties. The kids had a blast doing different activities throughout the birthday party. Can’t say enough good things about this place, and what they teach!

Wonderful place for not only skill development but also personal development. Owner and instructors genuinely get to know students and families and care about them. The lessons learned will provide character growth as well as martial art skills. The owner is also a long time student of many different martial arts, he didn't just buy a franchise, and tries very hard to live what he teaches the students. Proud to have been in this dojo family for 6+ years and proud of the friendships we have made there!
