This life-saving course instructs participants on how to avoid dangerous weapon confrontations and defend themselves using FULL-FORCE strikes to vulnerable areas on the padded attackers body. Although there is never a guarantee, the fact is that people who are trained correctly and determined to fight for their lives usually prevail against armed attackers. Much of this training involves overcoming many of our beliefs and fears concerning weapons as depicted by movies, press, and the unfortunate horror stories of assaults from victims who simply didn’t know better.
“Facing an armed attacker is a scary situation,” said Zorn who as a teenager found himself being assaulted at knife-point. “I didn’t know what to do when I saw the knife. I wanted to run but couldn’t get my legs working, I froze in place.” Luckily Zorn escaped the attack without injury and has since devoted his life to learning how to protect himself as well as teaching others how to escape crime and violence. “We can’t turn a bad situation into a good one but we can make it less bad. We can offer people options that they may not have otherwise. What we strive to do is give them a fighting chance.” Zorn offers these programs to Warsaw and surrounding communities. He concludes, “FAST Defense isn't about teaching complex karate moves or advanced SWAT tactics. It's is about giving normal people options that may just save a life, possibly their own.”
