Can't Commit to Weekly Self-Defense Classes?

PCC self-defense 101 workshops

If you are worried about your safety but don't feel you have the time to invest in weekly self-defense classes, then consider one of our Self-Defense 101 Workshops.  

I live in the Pittsburgh area and have taken many self defense courses in my life. I have always enjoyed them but this was a whole new experience. It is hands on and the education is not based as much around technique as much as training your brain to be ready. Because of this, the education soaks in easier and I know it will be available if I’m ever in the position to need it. Anyone who is looking to feel safer should enroll.

Our Self-Defense Workshops are split up into two paths:

FightBack Self-Defense Wrkshop.png

Fight Back

Four progressive workshops focusing on unarmed responses to an attack.

  1. FB001 - “Up Against a Wall”

  2. FB002 - “Hit Him Hard”

  3. FB003 - “Knock ‘em Down”

  4. FB004 - “Get the Edge!”

Stop Threat Self-Defense Wrkshop.png

Three individual workshops focusing on stopping an armed attack.

  1. ST001 - “Flash of Steel”

  2. ST002 - “Click, Bang, Boom”

  3. ST003 - “Zombie Apocalypse”


Each path offers a core curriculum that focuses on specific self-defense skill sets. Additionally, each workshop also includes awareness training and safety tactics.

No prior training is necessary. These workshops are "hands-on" training that use simple, yet effective and proven techniques to help increase your self-defense skills, awareness, and survival. 


Each class is a 3-hour session. Actual workshop reservations (day/time) will be dependent upon availability at the time of booking.


Training is typically with a partner in small training sub-groups. Practice is very safe, controlled and methodical. Your learning and absorption is our goal.  

Workshops can be scheduled for a minimum of 1 student or up to a maximum of 10 students.
If you have more than 10 students then the training group will be split into groups of 10. This gives the best overall environment for learning and absorbing the training curriculum.


Workshops are priced according to the number of students; the more students the more cost savings. Book multiple workshops and save up to 20% off.
