Learn more about self defense certification

There are five levels from beginner to Master Instructor. Skills are gained at each level which are built upon for the next level. As far as we are aware this is certainly the only self-defense certification course approved by a recognized worldwide organization in New Zealand or maybe even Australasia.

What separates us from the rest and why are we the best? When looking for real self-defense instruction every dojo, or school, does not render the same quality of instruction. Not only does Steve have vast experience in the field of teaching adults in multiple disciplines, but as a former police officer and corrections officer in the United States he has successfully defended himself and others many times.

Ask yourself: Is it better to learn from someone who has been in many encounters with criminals where there is only one rule: That there are no rules? Or would you rather learn from a part time instructor who has never been in that dangerous a level of conflict?

We believe the answer is clear. Steven Allen is a consummate professional, check out our testimonials, teaching martial arts and practicing Chinese Medicine is his everyday business, many teaching martial arts today work in another field and only teach part time.

Your life may very well depend upon the instruction you receive. Therefore, doesn’t it seem prudent to choose the best quality martial arts and self-defense instruction you can find? And the highest quality is exactly what we deliver. Steve believes one’s self defense response must originate from the subconscious; your defense must be spontaneous and automatic. If you stop to think, it’s too late.

Steve also teaches self-defense from an internal martial arts perspective. Physics actually matter. If a person has more mass and more strength, and/or when faced with multiple assailants, using strength simply won’t work.

Blocking a punch is a myth in real life street encounters, and it may get you killed. Real assaults by seasoned criminals have nothing to do with sparring, a boxing match, ufc, or mma. There are no referees to mitigate the violence.

In the real world, big men attack small women, several men attack one man, one man hits another when his victim is not looking. In the real world people use knives, guns, brass knuckles, sticks and rocks, anything they can get their hands on.

Attacks by psychopathic criminals are sudden and unannounced. Your training should prepare you for this reality. Most self-defense training today lacks this grounding in reality, it reflects more of a sports martial arts mind set which is not only unusable on the street, but may result in serious injury or worse.

At Dharma Way Dojo and Self Defense Solutions there are no sports overtones to the training. The skill you gain will be based on Steve’s over forty one years of professional experience and research into the nature of violent assaults; the science of self-defense, and its psychological, physical and social impact.

And these days don’t count on a member of the public to intervene, they don’t want to get involved. You are on your own, and you must trust your training, shouldn’t that training be the most practical and of the highest standard you can find?

Do you feel confident you can protect yourself and family against psychopathic criminals who are skilled and experienced in violence? Don’t be deluded by political correctness, or even legal nit picking, in the contest of life and death the survival of you and your loved ones is all that matters.

Will you ignore quality to save a few dollars, what price do you put on your family’s safety? Are you under the false assumption that the police will protect you, then read the newspaper? You will find plenty of instances where people were attacked and killed, and the police arrived in time to draw a chalk outline around the corpse.

Do you really think members of the public will intervene on your behalf when you are undergoing a violent assault? That assumption is laughable, and even if they did jump in the fray, they probably have no skills either so both of you end up in hospital or the morgue.

You need training in the realism of violent assaults from someone with real world experience in violent assaults. You don’t need theory, or sports, or law. You need skills that you’re confident in, that will actually work to keep you and yours’ safe.
