RUN SAFE – Self-Defense for the Running Community

Our specialized RUN SAFE Self-Defense training program has been designed to prepare the running community both physically and mentally, to react and defend themselves if ever put in a life threatening situation. The training covers a wide variety of scenarios both inside and outside of our training facility, to provide realistic scenarios that one may face when running, especially when alone.  We teach the most effective, street proven self-defense techniques such as: releases from grabs, chokes and bear hugs, striking defenses, weapon disarming and ground survival techniques. Emphasis is placed on being able to defend yourself under stress – eliminating the “shutting down & freezing” reaction.

Training will provide you with the tools to fend off a would-be attacker, while feeling safe, secure and empowered in your everyday life.  Krav Maga relies on one’s natural instincts & reflexes, and is an easy to learn self-defense system for all ages, sizes and physical abilities.

Our RUN SAFE instructors are available to run training programs and seminars at our training centers or at off-site locations that are convenient for you and your groups.  Some recent organizations that we have worked with include:

  • RUN 856 Running club (South Jersey)

  • Mullica Hills Women’s Triathlon Club (South Jersey)

  • Wild Harbor Tri-Club (Wildwood, NJ)
