Azad’s Martial Arts Family Center is offering a series of self-defense classes for all adults in our community called Personal Defense Training (PDT). 

FIRST-TIME ADULT PDT is entirely FREE* and open to the general public.  PDT is designed to make students and the public more aware, prepared, and ready for any hostile situation anywhere.

The next session starts soon, call Azad's at 530 892-2923 to register.

Each ADULT PDT session is held each Saturday, either in-person or virtual. Classes will be held at Azad’s Martial Arts Center located at 313 Walnut Street Suite 150 in Chico.

  1. Cutting edge personal safety tips for men and women known as Safety Awareness Skills (SAS).
  2. The single most important step you must take to handle an attacker.
3. The fastest get-away techniques from any type of grab or hold.
4. Ten most effective disabling targets you must know.
