Why Untouchable?! ~ Women’s Self-Defense at Scranton MMA

Be Prepared

With one rape happening every 6 minutes in the United States women need to be better prepared now more than ever. Something has to be done and that is why we offer Untouchable! What makes the Untouchable! program so effective is that you are not only taught the physical, verbal, and psychological techniques necessary to deal with an attacker but you also learn the universal guiding principles that govern the self-defense techniques. Why is this knowledge so critical? Because no two sexual assaults are exactly alike! Armed with your understanding of these governing principles you will be able to adapt every technique you learn in this program to your specific scenario if you should ever be targeted for an attack!

Transcending Confidence

Today’s modern woman has comforts that fifty years ago few women ever thought possible: education, career, family, and material luxuries HOWEVER there is one advantage man will always have over woman – the physical and aggressive power advantage! This advantage of physical power is a source for many insecurities in women. There is an answer to the dilemma however; leverage. The practices of Untouchable! employ leverage, technique, and timing, so any woman, regardless of age or athletic ability, can make them work against a larger more aggressive attacker. Once you have learned the techniques in this program you will be extremely confident that you can defend yourself should the need ever arise and that confidence will transfer itself into many other aspects of your personal and professional life!

BullyShield Parent Association Now Forming

Attention Scranton MMA community members! The BullyShield Parents Association is being created to foster programs, opportunities, and fundraisers for every child enrolled in the BullyShield program at Scranton MMA.

How It Works

The events are offered on a voluntary basis with all funds raised benefitting the children! Every child receives their very own BullyShield account. Several fundraisers will be offered throughout the year. A child that chooses to participate in any fundraiser has every cent they raise directly deposited into their personal account! The child may use the funds in that account at any time to cover the cost of anything related to training or competing!

  • Monthly Dues
  • New Gis
  • Seminars
  • Tournaments
  • Private Lessons
  • Martial Arts Camps
  • And So Much More!

Any Scranton MMA community member interested in helping with the creation of the board of directors for the BPA please contact Dave Leslie, Jeff Reese, or Tom McGuire. More information regarding the BPA wil be distributed this week at the academy and a open house meeting regarding upcoming fundraisers and events will be scheduled shortly.
