    What is the BACKOFF! Program?

     

    BACKOFF! - A real world, hands-on, self defense program  specifically designed  for women that has been taught here in Illinois  since 1984. The program  cost is normally $249.                

    Kevin Sogor has over 35 years of teaching experience, and has   modeled this program from the most successful short course program in   Europe, used to teach over 50,000 nurses.  

    BACKOFF! is an effective and easy to learn group of  techniques and principles  that, combined with keys of awareness, will  help prepare any woman for  the unthinkable - a physical attack.  While  no program can cover every  eventuality, BACKOFF! was developed to  provide as many of these tools  as possible in a short time.

    The program is divided into four modules,  including a new ADVANCED  module, each 90 minutes long. Each module is  based on a theme.  

    Why is BACKOFF! Unique?

     

    Basics

    The Basics Module teaches defenses from the most common types of   attacks as well as a series of highly effective techniques against the   worst possible type of attack. 

    Out on the Town  

    This module concentrates on day to day defenses from attacks that   may occur out in public going on day to day errands, including   protecting a friend.

    Close Defense  

    Covering techniques for defense in tight spaces, when cornered, or   even in the work place. Also added to this module is a new Active   Shooter Response component.  

    Last Resort  

    A special module designed to teach striking, kicking, ground   fighting, and the mental preparedness it takes to stop a confrontation   dead in its tracks.

     

    Improvised Defense - Special Module    

    This unique module is designed to teach how to fight with improvised   weapons...common items found throughout the home that will save your   life when the need arises! Also included is a second component  involving  Active Shooter Response.
