The UMAC Self-defense course teaches applied personal safety. Awareness and avoidance skills are always emphasized as the first line of self-defense. Beyond this you will be taught the physical techniques needed to protect yourself from a larger, stronger and more aggressive person.
The UMAC Self-defense course was developed exclusively for women and their self-protection needs. Physical, psychological and verbal skills are taught to prepare and protect women from very specific situations. The situations, attacks and defenses that surround an assault on a woman are much different than those that surround a man. These differences are studied, responses are determined and reactions are then constantly reinforced to protect and empower the student to control the outcome. Mental preparation and verbal responses are critically important areas of study in the UMAC Self-Defense course. Students of the system not only learn to protect themselves, they also become more confident, assertive and successful in every other area in their lives.


  • How to recognize potentially dangerous situations and avoid them.
  • To assess situations quickly and respond decisively.
  • Verbal and physical tools to end an attempted assault and get to safety.
  • Safety tips to use when at home, traveling, driving, shopping, etc.

Our programs range from a one-hour lecture, a two or four-hour seminar, to yet a full eight hour hands on workshop.

These programs will give you the knowledge, skills and attitude that lead to self-confidence and his self-esteem. The concepts taught and the numerous subjects covered genuinely make this a life changing experience.

To inquire about bringing one of the programs to your organization or work place, contact John Ingallina at ingallina@gmail.com or (585) 924-7450.
