Martial Art Program

Reality based Self-Defense has come to Cornelius

Many people buy insurance for their cars, cell phones, and houses yet never spend anything on insuring their own safety.

Most people only want to learn self-defense when they actually need it. By that time, it’s too late. Your attacker will not give you an advantage or any dignity while violating and attacking you.

Your attacker could care less about how much you love your life or your family, how much money you have, or how important you are, you are just an opportunity to them.

Be confident, overcome fear and go from the victim to the attacker. Look at your attacker and say in your head, “I will destroy you.” You have a moral, ethical and legal right to protect yourself and your family.

Most get their knowledge of self-defense from TV, sports and hearsay. This is a fatal mistake and a false sense of security.

At Shorey’s Taekwondo America we are now offering our Reality based Self-Defense workshops. We have streamlined our 8-week program into 3 separate workshops. Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. All our classes are a blend of lecture and physical instruction. So, trim your nails, remove your jewelry and tie back your hair and get ready to work up a sweat. We also ask that you wear comfortable supportive clothing. You do not have to be in any particular shape to take this workshop, reality is what you got is all you have to work with, if the threat comes your way.


_ 3 to 4-hour workshop. In the beginner’s class we introduce you to reality base self-defense. How do you identify the threat, and what are the good choices you need to make to avoid becoming a victim? What should your response be if it happens to you?


_ 3 to 4-hour workshop. In the Intermediate class we step it up, your attacker has failed to realize that you aren’t so easy to overcome. We address the many ways he might lay hands on you and some simples principles that you can use to get away. How can you fight off a bigger stronger attacker?


_ 3 to 4-hour workshop. In the Advanced class the table has turned your attacker has realized that his first mistake was choosing you? Fear and doubt have now entered him. If escape is not an option, you will draw upon all that you have learned and bring the fight to him. If in his desperation he produces a weapon you will learn some clear principles to aid you through this extremely dangerous situation.
