Learn How to Defend Yourself without a Weapon

Unarmed ChAD Self-Defense

You might be unarmed, but you have options. 

Unarmed, however, doesn’t mean defenseless. Learn how to effectively prevent an incident and protect yourself when it happens. At Pugh Self Protection, we can help you learn the skills necessary to keep yourself safe.

Our Unarmed ChAD™ Self-Defense courses will cover the following:

  • The fundamental skills and concepts of behavior for self-protection.
  • Potential non-physical resolutions to different incidents.
  • How your body responds to crises and the results of that stress. You will know how it feels now, so you will feel empowered later. 
  • The behaviors and motivations of typical assailants.
  • Use of force laws and the aftermath of being in a self-protection incident.
