Personal Defense System
You have the right to learn to defend yourself!
Personal Defense System ( PDS) is
designed to give students a challenging workout
including cardiovascular and strength building techniques while utilizing
the skills and techniques used by mixed martial artists. Referred to as “Mixed
Martial Arts for the Street”, the PDS Program incorporates seven areas of
focus including upper body strikes, defense to upper body strikes, lower body strikes, defense to lower body strikes, self-defense grappling,
street applications and weapons training.
Most Martial Arts systems
teach and train in a traditional way that has been carried
on throughout the centuries. A lot of the Hollywood-style punches and kicks
will never work in a real-life situation. This is great if a student wants to carry
on the art as a tradition or wants to compete in a tournament or controlled environment, however it becomes
useless in a real life situation. PDS
trains students for all areas of a real confrontation, making it the most functional martial arts system available!
Gain Self Confidence!
Confidence (or lack thereof) directly affects a person's level of performance and their leadership potential. Untrained individuals tend to avoid situations where they are required to be open to new situation and people. Self-defense training helps to build confidence, increase self-esteem, and gain a greater sense of leadership presence.
Feel Safe and Avoid Stress!
Stress is the number one factor in many illnesses and a leading cause of on-the-job accidents. Increased confidence coupled with an increased sense of calm, can mean long-term health benefits. Less stress means less stress-related illnesses, less lost time at work due to illness, fewer accidents and higher productivity.

Other Defensive Martial Arts
It is much
easier to teach a person how to hurt another person. The goal of PDS is to teach a person how to not hurt somebody. In a 3 second class, a person can learn how
to kill somebody. The goal of Personal
Defense Systems is to control the situation through conflict resolution.
It is human
nature to retaliate with “Deadly Force” when attacked. PDS will show you how to defuse different
situations without using that force.
Initial follow-up strikes are generated through Gross Motor skills,
where PDS builds on those skills by fine tuning them in order to better control
the situation. Through training, timing
and sensitivity, a person can have power over their opponent in a purposeful,
minimally aggressive manner.

LISTEN TO WHAT
HAVE TO SAY:
Josh S. / Government Official
“Evolve Academy enabled me
to reach my goal of becoming a Special Agent for the FBI. One of
the main ingredients in becoming an FBI Agent is physical
conditioning. When I first joined Evolve Academy and met Master Mike, I
couldn't help but be overwhelmed by his passion for training. I
immediately knew this was the place for me. Evolve Academy is no ordinary
gym. I couldn't have found a
better place to prepare me for the physical tests I've taken and for those I
expect to take in the future. I want to thank Master Mike and the
training teams at Evolve Academy for helping me achieve this goal in my life.”

“I am in my mid-fifties and have been training at Evolve Academy for over six years. I highly recommend the martial arts program for three reasons. The first reason is health. Since coming, I have dropped over 20 pounds and am now in the best physical condition that I've been in 15 years. The second reason is fun. The PDS workouts are a blast. Over the last 35 years, I have done running i.e. 10k races, half marathons and the Marine Corp marathon. I have lifted and I have used the treadmill at the gym. While these are all beneficial they grow boring. PDS, by far, is the most fun and challenging. And the third reason is community. The environment and teachers are friendly and supportive. Coming regularly, you get to know the people in the classes and a sense of camaraderie is developed. Everyone is there trying to improve their lives and you end up supporting each other. Workouts are now with friends .”
