Why Train With Us
Why Train With Us
Every single class has something you absolutely, positively need to know about self defense — but might never think to ask. -Karma Senge
At any Primal Survival Self Defense Location, we help adults just like you get a smart start in self defense.
If you are looking for practical self-defense training, a new hobby, want to meet new people, or just want to get more fit, Primal Survival Self Defense is the place for you.
We specialize in teaching adults with little to no previous experience self defense in a beginner-friendly environment.
But, are we the best self defense academy for you?
The answer is YES! if you find yourself nodding your head to any one of these statements:
- You only want to train with adults
- You want more personal attention
- You want a 100% money back guarantee
- You want to train at a reputable studio
- You want to learn what works on today’s streets
- You want to learn from the best instructors
- You want to learn self-defense for adults
1. You only want to train with adults
Here at any Primal Survival Self Defense Academy, we exclusively teaches adults over the age of 16. While learning self defense is great for kids, and is highly recommended, you should never have to train along side them or ever be taught by them. If you’re looking for a self defense school where you only train with other adults, then look no further!
2. You want more personal attention
We know you will learn faster and more thoroughly with smaller class sizes and we do not want you to ever feel like just another number in our classes. We’re one of the only self defense studio that actually limits how many students we teach so you never get lost in the shuffle. We have some of the lowest – if not the lowest – instructor to student ratios around. We guarantee you’ll get the time and attention you deserve.
3. You want a 100% money back guarantee
We stand behind our service. We offer a no-questions asked, 100% money back guarantee if you decide for any reason we didn’t live up to our promise of helping you learn practical self-defense, gain more confidence and start getting you into better shape. All we ask that you attend your scheduled classes in the first week and give us a fair shot. If you don’t get the results we promised you, then you have every right to ask for your money back for whatever you feel is fair up to 100%. No other self defense academy offers this!
4. You want to train at a reputable studio
We have over 40 reviews throughout the Internet—with nearly 20 of them on Google Places and 15 on our site. And, they’re all 5 out of 5 stars. Sound too good to be true? Either we are only teaching family members or people are actually having a good time here and reaching their goals. Once you try us, you can be the judge if the reviews are too good to be true or are, in fact, spot on.
5. You want to learn what works on today’s streets
You’ll learn the martial arts system of Primal Survival. This practical self-defense system is designed for the modern day environment; while many other martial arts and self defense systems are geared towards other cultures and historical time frames.
Our modern self defense system emphasizes simple and direct movements making it a highly practical self defense system for any adult to learn. We work exclusive training drills so you can master the system and make it instinctive.
Primal Survival incorporates every situation you can imagine including unarmed attackers, armed attackers, multiple attackers and more.
While other martial arts schools are adding on other arts to fill in their gaps, you will learn one martial art that incorporates it all from the start!
6. You want to learn from the BEST instructors
We’ve been open since 2005 and our head coach has been teaching the martial arts for over 20 years. At Primal Survival, you will never have to worry you’re learning from an unqualified instructor.
Our head coach, Karma, has been in the self defense world for 31+ years and is certified in 15 self defense / martial art systems.
Unfortunately, many self defense schools are not members of any organization that regulate quality standards or testing requirements. Here at Primal Survival, we prefer Quality vs. Quantity.
You can feel confident that our training history is legitimate and that our instructors have the credentials and experience to teach you correctly.
7. You want to learn self-defense for adults
Because we only teach adults, everything you learn is intended for adults. Many schools in town teach both adults and kids in the same classes so they have to tone down what they teach to make things also suitable for kids. This means they remove effective tools like eye pokes, chokes, and breaks because they don’t want kids doing these moves on the playground. Why limit what you can learn because kids are in your class? At Primal Survival Self Defense, you never have to give up these good ideas because we only teach adults.

What the Beginner Should Expect
Our system is a very fluid and economical self defense system that focuses on concepts and true primal skill! The curriculum is realistically grounded for real street survival. A student will initially devote time to understand and apply the concepts through training drills.
The class is divided into both application and lecture. This is an important element of our system that allows students to learn to react in a way that makes sense to them. And Coach Smith is amazing at getting the information across.
Our system is the ideal self defense system for people of all body types and sizes. Therefore, a lot of the training is done with multiple partners, sharing insight and learning through trial and error. This type of training lets all the students feel different energies and view things from a different perspective.
You learn to utilize your own strengths and manipulate the opponents’ weakness. Therefore, we teach students not to accumulate a large arsenal but rather to throw away the nonessentials and use natural advantages.
