WEEKLY SELF-DEFENSE CLASSES

MONDAYS @ 7 p.m.

Weapons-Based Self-Defense

Whether you carry some form of defensive tool or rely on empty hands, this class is for you. We work on simple, effective techniques that are easy to practice so you can reach a level of competence in a matter of weeks. Whether you’re brand new or come with some experience, it’s highly likely you will encounter something new.

Experience the “looks” and nuances of situational awareness, clinch fighting, weapon attacks, and simple scenarios.

WEDNESDAYS @ 7 p.m.

Concealed-Carry Self-Defense

These weekly firearms classes are a great way to dive into The Forge. Learn self-defense with a focus on defensive tools like firearms, and find the best ways for you to carry, conceal, retain, and access your defensive tools while using close-quarters techniques. Use of a firearm is not required. The principles apply to any defensive tool.

Build your skills over time. Gain and apply knowledge of awareness, body language, de-escalation, self-defense, firearms fundamentals, use-of-force law, and all the decision-making that comes with these concepts.

  • self-defense against a wall
  • firearms class warmup

SATURDAYS @ 9 a.m.

Weapons-Based Grappling

With a focus on groundwork, we cover all aspects of the self-defense critical incident. Over half of “fights” go to the ground, often just because someone fell down. Knowing how to fall and what to do immediately after hitting the ground is just the beginning.

For the armed defender, understanding grappling concepts is critical! Being able to retain and access your defensive tool on the ground is something most people never train, but here at The Forge is is a core focus.

  • crime in rapid city
