When humans perceive danger, a physiological response triggered by the sympathetic nervous system occurs. It tells us to fight the threat, run from it, or play dead. Commonly known as fight, flight or freeze, this biological response is a survival mechanism passed from generation to generation. Those who have trained and conditioned themselves to counteract this instinct have a competitive advantage in many ways: mental alertness, situational awareness, and better physical control of their movements.

Practical Physical Defense 1 is an interactive block of coursework and drills focused on countering spontaneous criminal assault. Following a modernized combative framework, the principles and skills taught do not require extended attribute development to apply effectively. Instructor Chris Fry from Modern Defensive Training Systems will guide students through the proper application of tactics and physical skills, leaving them with the ability to survive, counter and escape close range criminal assaults This course is open to all skill levels, regardless of prior experience.
