Currently we have schools in New York, Florida, Idaho, Georgia, Kansas, Pennsylvania, California, Brazil and the UK. If you'd like to host or help organize a seminar in your area you can start by contacting other local enthusiasts on our Training Groups page. To view the Training Groups page you first have to register.
If you can get a verbal assurance from 20 or so individuals then we would make an official announcement and set up an order form in our shopping cart with a discount for people who pre-ordered by a particular date.
As the organizer, if you can book a suitable location, (and if the seminar takes place) you'd get a 5% share of the profits (after airfare and lodging costs are met) as well as free admission and private training (as time allows--usually 1-2 hours). We charge $497 per person per weekend (or $250/day) for Public seminars, with discounts for early ordering, group ordering and additional discounts for law enforcement and military. Suitable locations would be dojos, gyms, or hotel conference rooms. Obviously a dojo would have more equipment we could exploit (mats, pads, etc.).
"I cannot think of a more efficient and effective tool for us to become better prepared...than that which we received over these past two days."
--Brian B., Ogden UT
For closed groups (where we do not advertise to the public) we offer the following options:
1. NY Local Private Seminars (1 or more days; no airfare/hotel involved) $197 per person per day, minimum 6 people or $1182/day.
2. Away Seminars (2 or more days only; involving airfare/hotel) $197 per person per day, minimum 10 people or $1970/day ($3940 total for 2 days).
Note: For both options above, the host is responsible for providing and/or paying for the seminar facility.
We usually begin with basic self defense Awareness, Avoidance, mindset and Combatives so people can train on their own and put it to use (if they had to) as soon as they walk out the door. We would then (depending on length and number of days of seminar) do an intensive intro into GC itself. We pretty much follow the outline of our book. If the group has specific interests (weapons, groundfighting, advanced sensitivity--good for tai chi enthusiasts, etc.) we can tailor the seminar as necessary.
