    Who Are We.

    P.A.C.T. Self Defense Academy is a family owned, well respected learning center in the private self defense sector since 2007. We have recently decided to go public as well as private with our courses, while relocating and adding a second training center (DOJO), we can now offer basic, intermediate and advanced courses to any individual or any size group who NEED to be able to protect themselves or their loved ones WHEN the situation arises.

    Our Process.

    P.A.C.T. instructors are trained by a 3rd DAN AIKIDO black belt in real life situations at our own private training center (DOJO) specializing in the most recent unarmed self defense tactics.

    Our Approach.

    The curriculum at P.A.C.T. is based on two concepts ; "positive mental attitude" and "effective self defense skills." We are so confident about our program that we guarantee our students and their families the most professional, well supervised and highest quality of classes available or "YOUR MONEY BACK."

    The Challenge.

    Many people have never been in a life threatening situation, so they are not sure how they would react. When challenged with a fight or flight situation, it is important that everyone has the confidence to defend themselves and their loved ones appropriatly. We can help foster positive and confident instincts when faced with danger.

    Our Mission.

    To help people break through the emotional barrier that has been instilled since an early age and deliver the skills and confidence of self defence. It's not necessary to take years of training in order to be effective in self defense and develop a personal protection plan that is right for you. In just 8 lessons (8 hours) you can learn the different techniques and develop the skills so that you will never be the victim again.

    Our Instructors.

    The dynamic team of instructors have been teaching self defense for many years.
    Tanya Formagie Gillespie, Chris Gillespie, Gates Vaudeville, Jenifer LeBlanc, Josh Marquis, and Zach Marquis
    The team offers basic, intermediate and advanced courses in self defense and weapons disarmament to any one person or group from the age of 13 and up.
