Classes & Seminars

These are not Martial Arts classes, nor are they designed to lure you into a long term commitment to some other class or club. This knowledge is presented to empower you, to make you aware of the tools you already have to protect yourself and your family – and how to best use them. The most important thing about these classes/seminars is that YOU acquire the knowledge and skill to live safer – and to help make your Community safer in the process!

All classes/seminars are taught by Master Instructor Edd Scorpio – a longtime supporter of Crime Stoppers, Community Policing and Neighbourhood Watch. He has taught Assault Prevention classes to clients as varied as The City Of Mississauga, Regal Cards, Appleby College, the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers and many individuals from 8 to 85.

Practical, useful, easy to learn. If you show up and pay attention, you will leave knowing at least one thing that could keep you/your loved ones safe – or even save a life!

Assault Prevention Classes & Safety Seminars available by appointment – we will also hold public classes and seminars, subscribe your email (to the right) for updates.

While the majority of classes/seminars are directed at empowering Women, they may be additionally available for Men & Children (teaching children requires special arrangements). While we have taught co-ed classes, it is more effective to teach to groups of singular gender – people tend to be more comfortable and open this way (and therefor more likely to participate fully).

We can teach Classes or Seminars to:

  • Schools
  • Social Groups
  • Corporate Teams
  • …or any group of like minded individuals!
