Pricing is a flat payment for all three sessions, regardless of attendance. We strongly encourage attendees to make all sessions, we do not offer discounted pricing if you are unable to attend all sessions. Payment must be made in full when registering - no refunds. 
Why are there 3 sessions?
We want all attendees walking away from this seminar feeling as comfortable and confident as possible. It is important to practice and have refreshers to build 'muscle memory'. In each session, the instructors will build on technique and scenarios - leaving the attendees well rounded in self-defense in scary real-life situations. 
Who are the instructors?
Grandmaster Trent A. Chontas (owner of Chontas Tang Soo Do) and Grandmaster Jack Pistella. Both instructors are 7th degree black belts with more than 90 years combined training and instructing experience.

No. This is a ticketed event with a separate cost. Members and non-members of Alpha Fitness Club pay the $90.00 seminar cost.

No. This is not a fitness class - this seminar that teaches important, and potentially life-saving, self defense.
What should I expect to learn in these classes?
You will be taught self-defense and strategy defense techniques (in both standing and ground defense positions). The classes will review situational awareness and preparation. You will gain the ability on how to respond, react and defend yourself in scary situations.
How should I dress for class? What should I bring with me?
Dress comfortable and wear good closed-toe shoes. Do NOT wear any form of jewelry to class (earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets).
