bridging the gap between martial arts and self-protection.

The C-Tac Self-Defense Program

Many of today’s martial arts programs fail to provide the comprehensive self-defense training individuals need to protect themselves and their loved ones. They neglect essential aspects of modern-day self-defense, such as legal considerations, de-escalation techniques, and protection in specific environments near or inside vehicles. The result is training that falls short of adequately preparing students for real-world scenarios, leaving them vulnerable when it matters most. This problem needs to be addressed with a new approach to self-defense training that considers the unique challenges of our current society and equips individuals with the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to ensure their safety and that of their loved ones.

What People Are Saying

“I can honestly say that Sifu Alan has over the years consistently impressed my students and myself with an expansion of concepts that forever improved and positively changed our skillset and abilities on the mat and the real world.”

— Coach Chris Mize Founder of Heroes Academy and Gracie Jiu-Jitsu of Birmingham

“Sifu Alan Baker has boiled down many of these life-enhancing perspectives into a source that shares the knowledge without the life-threatening consequences of attending the warrior’s alma mater of combat. Sifu Baker’s extraction of the lessons of a warrior’s quest through his own unique journey provides a map through the hazardous minefield of true warrior education. True wisdom has the insight to learn from others, especially in an arena where mistakes can be deadly. Enjoy the reward with far less risk. An old soldier’s purpose is to teach young soldiers how to become successful OLD soldiers.”

– MSG (Retired) Randy McElwee, US ARMY SPECIAL FORCES

As a student of the arts for 40-plus years, I have had the good fortune to receive training in several different martial arts systems. All of which I found to be beneficial. While I was confident in my ability to defend myself, I was uncertain how to do so while remaining on the right side of the law. The C-Tac Civilian Tactical SelfDefense Program has taught me to handle almost any potentially life-threatening situation while minimizing the risk of death or serious injury to myself or a would-be attacker. From de-escalating with proper posturing, proper vocal commands, or environmental awareness to significantly increase my odds of survival if violently attacked. I have never experienced training that compared to the instruction that I have received in the Civilian Tactical Program under the direction of Sifu Alan Baker.
