Imagine. Prepare. Practice.

Double Edge Self Defense is a self protection facility in Asheville, NC. We provide focused, empty-handed, practical training using very targeted martial art principles.

Our goal:

  1. Give people the confidence and techniques to prevent if not escape from violence;
  2. Train every-day citizens to survive violent assault by delivering incapacitating injury to the predator.

We assume the attacker is armed, stronger, and has buddies — a critical training principle.

Equally important is learning the mind set of the predator, that is, the nature of violence. You need some understanding of what you’re up against.

Instead of focusing on defensive moves, we flip the script and teach “personal offense”: in the moment of chaos, the solution to survival is disabling the attacker. It’s over in seconds.
