TFC Personal Protection
Learning to protect our Three Foot Circle

1st Level and 2nd Level
(18 Years old and above)

TFC (Three Foot Circle) is a program designed by Tom Pardue that gives the average person the ability to protect and defend themselves with only a few hours of training.

Realizing that most people,  while wanting to have the ability to protect themselves and their families, are unable to spend the months of training required to reach a level of proficiency with regular Martial Arts training.  TFC is the perfect answer.

Using a set of easily learned techniques, participants learn the ability to stun and remove themselves from a threatening situation, using non-deadly techniques that are perfectly legaland non-libelous.  No punches, no kicks, no gouging, no athletic ability required.

TFC is the perfect system for women and girls of all ages, recognizing that many threats they face do not require deadly force, but do require the need to remove themselves from a threat quickly and easily.  This is the PERFECT program for young women entering college

After the initial 2-4 hours of TFC group training, follow up classes are available to hone the skills learned

Threats that TFC address include:
*Recognition and Legal Response to aggressive behavior
*Recognizing the difference in high & low level threats and responding correctly
*Proper and effective response to Date Rape/Sexual   Assault situations
*Car Jacking Prevention & Protection (2nd Level TFC)
*Dealing with threats when younger family members  are present
*Dealing with Deadly Force (TFC 3rd Level Tactical) Firearm, Knife, and club disarms
