Self Defense

The video provides self defense techniques that are not only easy to learn but very effective in thwarting a potential assailant.

Once the techniques have been learned, the student will then prepare his/her own video showing how well he/she acquired the techniques of self defense and mail it to UMAA for evaluation. The student will receive a video containing corrections and instructions along with a full written evaluation of his/her progress.
