In the Fonseca Martial Arts Self-Defense program, students learn the proper ways to kick, punch, and block; how to defend against various punches, chokes, grabs, weapons, and take-downs; and how to deal with multiple attackers.

The program also focuses on situational awareness, teaching students how to recognize potentially dangerous situations and respond appropriately.

Most importantly, self-defense training allows individuals to feel more confident and secure. No previous martial arts experience is required.
