TRAIN BETTER THAN YOUR ENEMY

Training at DFMAC Defense

Self-defense training is focused on real life simulations of confrontations based on a variety of situations and types of fighters (no experience, grapplers, boxers, criminals, etc.) To be an efficient fighter, training needs to be adjusted for the individual’s tools, gender and body type. This has evolved into why different styles are taught at DFMAC Defense.
