Special Events & Seminars

Rick Wilson Knife Defense Seminar

Saturday June 9 (9am-5pm) & Sunday June 10 (9am-5pm)

There are masters in your own backyard, and Rick Wilson is certainly one of them when it comes to self defense. Register in advance for Rick's knife defense seminar by contacting wilson@wpd-rc.com.

Hard Target Self Defense Seminar

Saturday June 16 (9am-3pm)

Become a hard target for crime with our award-winning self defense seminar. Learn tactics that are functional, user-friendly, and effective under pressure. Sign up for the Hard Target Introduction program to take part in the seminar, plus 3 group classes. Youth and families welcome.

BJJ Seminar with SBGi Black Belt Ray Price

Saturday June 23 (10am-3pm) & Sunday June 24 (9am-12pm)
Ray Price is a veteran law enforcement member, a self-defense expert with ISR Matrix, and a firearms expert. He refers to his BJJ as "sloth jits": a slow and low, offensive, tight and technical, heavy game. Ray favors perfect technique over strength and speed, as demonstrated in his thoughtful and qualitative instruction.
Private lessons with Coach Ray are available upon request, as are single day purchases for the seminar. You DO NOT want to miss this opportunity to train with one of SBG’s best black belts! Tickets are available on Eventbrite.

Coming Up In July

Introducing Our Summer Theme: Fight Club!

July & August

Fight Club classes have historically been a student favourite, as well as the most effective way to take combative skills to a new level. Now we're introducing a Fight Club Summer, 2 months that are all about sparring, rolling, and throwing down. Training is SAFE & progressive, and ALL experience levels are welcome!
