Training the Basics

Training the Basics

Beginners Months 1 to 3

This is your first 3 months of training and everyone in the family can use these lessons to defend themselves. It does not matter if you are a seasoned fighter or just starting your self-defense journey going through the basics and fundamentals is key. You need to do repetition whether punching with a partner, heavy bag, focus mitts, rolling on the ground with a partner, or just shadowboxing. The more you do the moves and train like a real fight or as if someone is attacking you the better you will do in a real situation.

There are several different fighting ranges. Long-distance fighting, close-quarter fighting, and ground fighting. We cover all three.

The trainers in the videos know self-defense and they also teach fighters to fight in Amateur and professional MMA matches. The training will prepare you for an attack or a fight. Please only use in self-defense or if training for a professional MMA match does not use the training to bully or hurt other people that are not trying to hurt you.

Please consult a physician before starting to make sure you are able to do the training in the videos shown.

Beginners, please follow the videos in order.
Intermediate users if you have the experience you can go to any of the training videos.

The ProtectionSkills name you will see on the videos and that is our old company and website name. We are now TraintoFightBack and will slowly move to the new name on the videos as soon as we can.

Bully Training – How to Defend Yourself

The videos above will be a good base for you to defend yourself against Bullies. Go through the training and the more your train with the techniques we provide the more your confidence will grow.

The videos above I would start with ground self-defense and move into stand up fighting. This would be for anyone kids or adults getting bullied and need self-confidence. All the videos on this page teach you some incredible techniques which will help you stop bullying and to give you the confidence to fight back.

Many fights go to the ground so start with Jiu-Jitsu ground fighting then work into stand up punching and kicking.
