Self-Defense 

Recognizing how important self-defense training is, CCOP partners with our fellow safety organization Community Patrol Service (CPS) to provide training and information to all who wish to participate.  Our classes are designed to be low impact, fun and information packed.  They are open to everyone, 18 years and older with no upper age limit.  We can provide classes for specific groups, and we can address specific concerns such groups may have, but our general philosophy is that the techniques we teach much be applicable and effective for anyone from an eight year old  to an eighty plus year old.

The full course of classes covers:

  • SD-1:  Beginners self-defense introductory course – 3 hours (low impact)
  • SD-2: Seated and grounded defensive techniques and concepts (SD1 is a prerequisite to participate in this class)
  • SD-3: Grabs, holds and kidnap defensive techniques and concepts (SD1 & SD2 are a prerequisite to participate in this class)
  • SD-4: Sexual assault and domestic violence defensive techniques and concepts  (SD1, SD2 & SD3 are a prerequisite to participate in this class)
  • SD-5: Weapons defensive techniques and concepts  (SD1, SD2 & SD3 are a prerequisite to participate in this class)
  • SD-6: Multiple attackers defensive techniques and concepts  (SD1, SD2 & SD3 are a prerequisite to participate in this class)

Our SD-1 class is a very low impact class and is suitable for everyone. All other classes are more physically involved and more challenging mentally and physically as the class content implies.  We try to conduct COMMUNITY focused classes once a quarter for a nominal $20/student.  We can offer PRIVATE classes for nonprofit organizations at your facility for $60/student (you must guarantee a minimum of 10 students) and we also offer PRIVATE classes to for profit and other organizations at your facility for $100/student (you must guarantee a minimum of 10 students.)
