Personal Defense Seminar w/Steve Wakefoose Sunday, January 29, 2023

Fivex3 Training will host our third Self Defense Seminar with Steve Wakefoose of CrossFit West Chester in Pennsylvania on Sunday, January 29, 2023. This  self-defense seminar is based on Tony Blauer’s S.P.E.A.R System and Personal Defense Readiness program. Instructor Steve Wakefoose will lead the workshop. Steve is the founder of Providence Combatives and is a certified Level 1 Personal Defense Readiness coach and S.P.E.A.R. System Fundamentals coach with advanced certifications in the Blauer Tactical Systems Weapons Protection and Ground Fighting curriculum, serving Pennsylvania. With over 20 years of studying and teaching Martial Arts and Defensive Tactics in the private and public sectors, he has the experience and knowledge to fulfill your personal safety training needs. Steve currently serves in Law Enforcement as Defensive Tactics and Firearms Instructor. You can read a more about Steve’s program here.

Steve will lead you through a fun, interactive session of questions & answers about the psychology of real violence and how to best protect yourself. He’ll show you the tools you already have, how to detect and defuse bad guy. The culmination of over twenty years of research into the realities of confrontation and violent assault, the Personal Defense Readiness program is widely acknowledged as being on the cutting edge of personal safety training. This class will flow from mind-set, to contact, to confrontation, using the PDR’s unique Three D’s model: Detect, Defuse, Defend. Using our Non-Violent PosturesTM you will learn how to identify pre-contact cues, position for interception, and convert the startle-flinch using the world’s first behaviorally based self-defense method – the S.P.E.A.R. SystemTM.

The clinic will run from 10am until 2pm, with breaks naturally built in.  Participants should bring a light snack and water and dress in comfortable clothes and clean sneakers. The workshop is appropriate for anyone ages 13 and up. Public safety officers and officials are welcomed and encouraged to attend.

We expect the workshop to fill quickly, so register soon!  Cost for the four-hour clinic is $75 per person.  You can pay and register below using our Pay Pal link.
