On Nov 23rd MDTS is teaming up with Crossfit Mohawk Valley in Marcy, NY to offer this course with ALL proceeds being donated to Hospice. Class size is limited and donations will be collected at the event. Hope to see you there.


The MDTS Environmental Safety & Practical Force Options course focuses on recognizing threats in your environment and what force options are available to deal with these threats effectively. A number of alternative force options and force multipliers for personal protection will be presented. Not eveyone has the time to dedicate to self defense training or martial arts. However, with good environmental awareness, proximity control skills and the correct delivery system, force multipliers such as pepper spray, illumination tools, small impact tools and small edged tools can be extremely effective at evening the odds, deterring and/or stopping a confrontation. This course will introduce both conventional and unconventional force options and provide the knowledge and skills necessary to apply them during a criminal assault situation. This course is suitable for anyone regardless of age, gender or physical capabilities.

-Personal Protection Mindset
-Environmental Safety & Awareness

-Recognizing Threats & How To Manage Them (Overview)
