Fierce & Fearless encompasses the entire spectrum of personal safety.

Fierce & Fearless is not a traditional martial arts program or the typical "self-defense" class. Our training is specifically designed to address all three areas of personal protection: Physical, Mental, and Emotional.  

The ability to control one's emotions is the single most important variable in any situation.  When violence is eminent, your ability to defend yourself is greatly affected by your ability to control your emotions.  We place a premium on understanding the mental and emotional dynamic inherent to all conflict.  Our training progression is designed to develop mental toughness and harden emotional resolve.

Fierce & Fearless was created to bring students to a high level of proficiency in a relatively short period of time.  Instead of teaching a set of specific techniques that may or may not fit an individual, we teach a progression of concepts and principles that can adapt to the individual or situation.  Training addresses a wide variety of aggressive acts including punches, chokes, headlocks and grabs, as well as defenses against multiple attackers and assailants armed with firearms, edged weapons, or blunt objects.


Our qualified instructors are nationally certified and uphold the highest standards in teaching personal protection. With a wealth of experience in the combat arts, our team has developed a program that is designed to build students progressively, in an environment that is enjoyable and safe.
