Why is Attitude, First?

Attitude First Training Center specializes in "Defense of Self"

Attitude First's philosophy is that a person’s attitude is the foundation for success, whether that be at school, at work, or on the street.

We teach our Members awareness and problem-solving in order to quickly identify dangerous situations and then engage in strategies that may help de-escalate or avoid that situation altogether.

But should the need ever arise, our Programs help to prepare our Members with the confidence, discipline, respect and fighting skills necessary to protect and defend themselves and their loved ones from physical harm.

Self Defense Programs:

Martial Arts- A self-defense system that incorporates hand strikes, kicking, submission grappling and weapons with a realistic approach to defending yourself in a modern world.

Women's Self Defense- Designed to introduce the awareness of effective choices in the event of an undesirable situation. Tihs is an interactive and very physical class.
