COBRA-DEFENSE TEACHES THE SAME SELF-DEFENSE SKILLS, TACTICS, AND STRATEGIES AS THE POLICE ACADEMY!

LEARN THE WORLD’S MOST EFFECTIVE FORM OF SELF-DEFENSE.

COBRA-Defense is a law enforcement-based self-defense system that teaches civilians what police cadets learn in the Police Academy. That’s important because martial arts and military self-defense training are more theory-based because soldiers and black belts are rarely confronted with a violent person hand-to-hand. However, street cops deal with violent offenders every day.

COBRA-DEFENSE IS NOT AN MMA OR KICKBOXING MATCH

This is not a sport or a point match. In real life you do not get to pick your bad guy. He/she will almost always pick the time, place and/or method of attack. You will never get this luxury. We train our students with this in mind. This is why COBRA™ was developed to be extremely effective in real life.

The COBRA -Defense program is designed to be highly effective in real-world situations where your survival is on the line.

COBRA-Defense was created from experience in law enforcement, close-quarter combat techniques, and martial arts with a further extensive study on the psychology of criminal intent and realistic self-defense. This system was designed with the sole purpose of personal safety and defense.

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF SELF-DEFENSE

Real, effective self-defense begins with a mindset. Here is your guide to developing that mindset. Learn what it takes to overcome conflict, and protect yourself and those you care about.

WE INSURE OUR HOMES, OUR CARS, OUR TVS, EVEN OUR CELL PHONES. YET WE DON’T INVEST IN OUR OWN SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OUR LOVED ONES. NOW IS THE TIME.

Whether you are a stay-at-home mom, a police officer, or an experienced Martial Artist, this PROGRAM will open your mind to a new way of thinking. Real, effective self-defense begins with a mindset. Here is your guide to developing that mindset. Learn what it takes to OVERCOME conflict, and PROTECT yourself and those you care about.

Great place to learn practical real-life self-defense! This is not a tournament or sports self-defense! The techniques learned here will help adults, teens, and children are equipped to deal with real-life situations. Great atmosphere for young and old, male or female. If you are looking to educate yourself, this is the place!” — DR. LORNA COYLE

The teen to college self defense class was amazing. My daughter learned so much stated “I feel like I am more capable to take care of myself when I am out and alone”. I got to observe and learned so much that you ordinarily would not think about. The instructors are amazing and very knowledgeable and made it easy to learn. The also used real life scenarios. They demonstrated all moves, were willing to answer questions and made sure all of the girls felt comfortable with the moves they were learning. I would recommend everyone to take a self defense course, especially the young ones that are in high school and entering college. The class was worth every penny and if you take the course you will be glad you did.”–SHELLY HUTCHERSON BROWN

“I attended the women’s self-defense class and really enjoyed it. It was quite an eye-opener and empowering. They packed so much into 2 hours. It has left me wanting more and I plan on bringing my kids to one of their classes in the future. Thanks!!!”–KATE MONTEMURRO

Cobra came to our church & showed us many ways to make it safe. Intense training! Very knowledgeable. I recommend COBRA for all that want to keep their family & friends safe & aware of their surroundings. Thanks & check them out!”–MATT DANIELS, JR.

I recently attended the COBRA active shooter plan class with my two sons. I feel much more prepared now, and more importantly, my boys are now better prepared in case, God forbid, something like this happens. I wholeheartedly recommend this class and this program for everyone out there! Be prepared, hopefully, you never need this training, but if you do it’s much better to be ready.“–SCOTT McSTACY

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COBRA-DEFENSE AND KRAV MAGA?

COBRA was developed from real-life Law Enforcement training and field experience. COBRA Self Defense was created in 2002 by Chris Sutton. He literally created the system in his squad car between calls while simultaneously working as a full-time Law Enforcement Officer and martial arts school owner.

COBRA Self Defense and Krav Maga are viewed by many as the top of the list, which is why this question comes up so often. Either one can serve you well provided the instructors are highly trained and qualified, but there are some differences. It’s helpful to understand that the words, “krav maga” translate to “contact combat” in Hebrew. So, any contact combat system can be described as Krav Maga.

Generally speaking, Krav Maga evolved from the 1950s as a system developed for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). There are distinctions between COBRA and Krav but for the average person, it boils down to this: Police officers physically engage criminals on a daily basis. This means what works and what doesn’t work gets filtered through in real-time.

Law Enforcement agencies continually enhance their skills and training based on what is most effective in real-world situations against criminals of all types. COBRA Self Defense continually upgrades and enhances its curriculum by attending and participating in Law Enforcement field training events and on-duty patrol activities.

In contrast, a military soldier may never have a physical engagement, so the majority of what is learned is in the classroom, not the field of battle or the streets.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I assess a self-defense program?

The average person spends very little time in their life reviewing self-defense or martial arts programs. You may buy into a program that has no basis in real-world self-defense because “you don’t know what you don’t know.”

Here are three red flags that a program may not be reality-based.
1. They do pre-rehearsed self-defense demos. For instance, they’ll have a woman being attacked and as she kicks and punches the attackers, they drop like flies all around her.

COBRA Self-Defense never does pre-rehearsed demos. We will pull someone from the audience who we may have never met to help illustrate the reality of the point we’re trying to make.

2. They demonstrate a child kicking and punching an adult male until he drops, defeated. This will never happen.

Kids can’t fight their way out of the grasp of a determined adult criminal the way most people think.

3. The demonstrating attacker holds his or her punch out and stands still while the defense is being executed.
In martial arts, this is called “One Step Sparring” and it is often passed off as self-defense. It is not.

Is COBRA-Defense a martial arts like karate or tae kwon do?

 The martial arts tend to approach training with the goal of teaching a long-term, complex system.

On the other hand, COBRA prepares students to be able to handle multiple types of real-world criminal encounters. It’s not a sport, game, competition, or traditional martial art.

While that can be valuable training, it leaves little time to focus on realistic self-defense.

COBRA Self-Defense is 100% realistic Law Enforcement-based self-defense. There is no bowing, belts, or ritual. Just learning.

How long does it take to learn self-defense?

That depends on where you train. If you enroll in a martial arts school, your goals and objectives are not that of a real-world self-defense program. That’s because martial arts schools have lots of traditional requirements, sports skills, techniques, and forms that are not self-defense-oriented.

In contrast, COBRA only teaches self-defense, so you can streamline your training in an hour of COBRA, a 10-week academy, or any of our formats. This is a more effective and efficient way to train.

How do I choose a self-defense course?

If you were going to jump out of an airplane, would you want the free parachute or the top of the line? While we would never discourage you from learning, generally you get what you pay for.

As certified COBRA Self Defense instructors, we are professionals. This is what we do and have done since 2002.

I carry a gun, why do I need COBRA?

The three most valuable firearm skills are the ability to access, deploy, and retain your weapon. Weapon retention is the most important of the three. Most people do not train for this.

Even a highly trained professional, like a policeman, who works with a gun every day, is at risk of losing their weapon to a criminal.

Killing paper at the range is easy, being in a live shooting situation is completely different and we demonstrate this in your first COBRA class.

Why take a COBRA-Defense Class?

Because training saves lives. The two descriptions most posted in Google and Facebook reviews are, “Life-Changing” and “Eye Opening.”
