Self defense seminar with Kevin Costello

Self-Defense Seminars


We can work with your group to provide self-defense instruction through private, individualized seminars. Our self-defense program can be tailored to a wide variety of ages and situations to meet your specific goals.

We utilize a system of strategic thinking and self-defense based on three principles: Clear, Control, and Conclude. Participants are given multiple options for confronting conflict situations, based on the level of risk the defender is placed in. The goal is to neutralize a threat with only as much force as necessary.

Some of our clients have included: HMP Communications, Pure Mixed Martial Arts, the North American Center for Continuing Medical Education (NACCME), North Jersey Judo, Dominion Wrestling, LTS Lohmann Therapy Systems, and The Trauma Institute of New Jersey, along with a variety of Scout and student groups. Here's what a few of them have to say about the program:

"Self-defense with Kevin and Sam was something I looked forward to every single week. Every time I left the hour-long class, I felt strong, powerful, and more knowledgeable about defending myself. The instructors were super friendly and very passionate about sharing their experience and skills with us. They were open to any scenarios we wanted to discuss, or moves we wanted to try. Although self-defense is a serious topic, the instructors still made the class fun. The attention they gave every single participant is so valuable, and I know that I really appreciated the one-on-one feedback. After completing this course, I feel that I am better prepared to use self-defense if I need to. I would definitely recommend this class to both corporate settings and anyone who is interested in being able to defend themselves!"

- Sydney Turner, NACCME


"It is very rare that you hear that you were in the same room with a Martial arts expert that holds four black belts from four very lethal martial arts. I had the pleasure to work with Kevin Costello during his Self-Defense class. By far the most stimulating and fun class I have participated in. Not only is Kevin extremely knowledgeable when it comes to applying the flaws of human anatomy against you, but his teaching style gives you insight on dangerous everyday social situations (getting grabbed at a bar, walking to your car alone at night, etc.) and provides a plan when/if you happen to ever be in that situation.

This class has all the tools necessary to train and entertain people from all ages, gender, and experience. Kevin is patient and delivers the right personal touch to make everyone feel a part of the class. If you want to explore how to develop confidence and a good relationship with yourself I would suggest getting started here."
