We are located at 1311 S. Main St. in Mt. Airy, Maryland.
While we definitely value working one on one with our students, our boot camps are geared toward learning as a team. If you are interested in personal training options, please contact Mark Kline for more information.
Our boot camps are upbeat, fun and exciting! We are all here to learn how to keep ourselves safe so we work hard to ensure each boot camp is conducted with humility, respect and a positive atmosphere. Verbal abuse, bullying, hyper-aggression and an unwillingness to take instruction will NOT be tolerated.
As part of your first boot camp we do ask that you purchase an AWARE t-shirt to wear during our training. We encourage you purchase a mouth guard if you do not have one but all other training and safety equipment will be provided by AWARE.
We have three training sessions per week, we only ask that you commit to one night per week but strongly encourage you to take advantage of as many as possible.
Life happens and we’re happy to work with you.
Safety is the most important portion for ourselves and our students. Safety aspects are considered in the development of all of our techniques. We all have to get up and go to work the next day. But, having addressed safety, please remember we are not teaching you how to bake bread. We are teaching you to survive an attack from a nasty individual or individuals who want to harm, and/or kill you or a loved one. You will be sore and you will end up with some bruises. That is part of any reality based self-defense training and to be honest will only help you understand how you will function under the duress of an attack.
Absolutely not. We use rubber, plastic and wood training weapons designed to emulate what you might expect during an attack. The only exception to this is during our improvised weaponry curriculum when we might through in the occasional magazine or paper towel roll!
