Welcome to Yuba-Sutter Self Defense in Yuba City, Ca.
Meet Instructor Don McGuffin, a native born Yuba City resident that was raised in Marshfield Mo. and returned after high school by way of the US Air Force.
“I have always been driven by a desire to help people and I view the Self Defense Company Instructor Program as a way to expand my ability to reach people who want to learn how to keep their loved ones and themselves safe.”
Don studied many martial arts disciplines over the years, Taekwondo, Shito Ryu, Kuk Sul Won, Escrima, and Brazilian Jui Juitsu and learned a lot from each of them, but was never satisfied as none offered the confidence he was looking for to prevent himself and his loved ones from being victimized by an attacker.
“Through the military I learned the difference between the “Sport” of martial arts and the harsh reality of hand to hand combat and I began training with special operators and Instructors that provided what I felt were “Real World” techniques that would actually work. After returning to the civilian world though, I was disappointed that there was no one training these techniques, until I found the Self Defense Company.”
“Damian and his team not only teach these techniques, but the mindset needed to protect yourself and do it with a system that is accessible and does not require years of classes or thousands of dollars. I am thrilled to have trained with them and become one of their instructors and am here to help you if you are interested”
Don is offering free introductory courses and training that cover things everyone should know and are the perfect place to start.
