This place has become like a second home to me and I'm greatful to have a place so close to where I live that is as patient and informative as P3. The coaches are extremely friendly and P3 has helped to improve my Jiu-Jitsu and my fitness. I recommend this place to anyone looking to learn an amazing martial art or just improve their physical health.

Very nice group of people, they just wanna see you grow, and you will grow here. They're a Jiu Jitsu school primarily, but they do have a Judo class on Tuesdays at 8pm. You'll feel right at home here

Hands down best facility around! I signed our son up last year and made multiple phone calls and searched online to find the best school for our son. P3 is extremely clean, professional and you can tell they all are passionate about what they do. He now has so much love for BJJ and looks up to all the coaches. You guys are awesome! My husband and I have recently joined the adult classes and I highly recommend.

My son had his first trial class today and he loved it! The entire staff was super helpful in answering all our questions. Facility is clean and it is a very professional setting. I have a feeling our son will be signing up after the trial is over! The way the coaches interact with the children is very admirable and they definitely work to make learning fun for the kids!

P3 Martial Arts has become my kids 2nd home. My son who is 7.5 has been at P3 for about 1m5 yrs and my 5 year old daughter is in her 2nd month. Everything about P3 is so awesome and its super clean!

If I had to pick one thing that really makes P3 stand out from other martial arts schools it is the coaching staff! They are passionate about BJJ and teaching the kids. When my kids see their coaches on the mats training/practicing they get so excited! This school cares about what their students are doing on and off the mats. Truly amazing role models!

Thank you to P3 for encouraging my kids to better themselves everyday

This is our second year working with the P3 team and it won’t be our last. We came in and asked if they could set us up a self defense class geared specially around safety for women in role at our company. They worked with me to be sure to target any situations the team could encounter in life and in the workplace-helping them realize that’s it’s not all about your size! 100lbs or 300lbs, it is about knowing the techniques. I highly recommend this team as they are extremely knowledgeable and made everyone feel comfortable! Keep up the great work guys!

The Shopper’s Self Defense Guide

Holiday shopping can be a thrill. In a good way and even in a bad way. Adding a little self
defense mentality can go a long way.

Self Awareness

You have society on your side. Potential criminals (for the most part) won’t just obnoxiously run
up to you in front of a crowd and take your things.

These criminals are looking for an opportune situation. As long as you are aware of your
surroundings, you can prevent yourself from ever falling into one of these situations.

Your own body is a part of your surroundings. It would be a foolish decision to count cash in
public. This is something you should be aware of, and instead count your cash privately.

The ultimate holiday shopping self defense tip is to simply be aware. Be aware of where a
potential pick pocket is, and what a potential pick pocket is looking for.

The Pick Pocket

Pickpockets thrive on holiday shopping. There are crowds of people, loaded with cash and
jewelry who know nothing about practical self defense.

Get inside the mind of the pick pocket. They are looking for crowds. Pay attention when in a
crowd. Don’t forget where all your belongings are.

Avoid dark areas. Keep your wallet in your front pockets. Don’t let your bag or purse hang
behind you. Everything valuable should be positioned up front where your eyes and hands can
follow them at all time.

Wear simple, comfortable, and non-flowing clothing. The biggest aspect of holiday shopping self
defense is being prepared. Pay attention and stay safe.

Dealing With Your Car

Another holiday shopping hotspot for thieves is your vehicle.

Pay attention to where you parked. Don’t park in a dark corner. Park where it’s bright. Even if
this means you have to park further away, putting yourself in a favorable position is the
centerpiece of holiday shopping self defense.

Pay attention when you finish shopping. The walk back to you car is the most dangerous. The
criminals know that you are finished with all of your holiday gifts and exhausted. Have your keys
ready in hand, and don’t waste any time.

Pay attention to your surroundings, get to your car, and get out. If you are worried about your
situation, then don’t be scared to ask a security guard to escort you.
