L.A. Performance Pros Unite to Unveil Women's Threat Management Training

EL SEGUNDO, CA--(Marketwire - September 30, 2009) - The R1 Training Center, L.A.'s original MMA Performance gym, in collaboration with Zone Ready ( and Pinnacle Performance ( are happy to announce the development of R1's Threat Management Training (TMT), an innovative course to address women's safety issues.

The R1: TMT course was developed specifically for women to provide basic strategies and skills used for self-protection by blending practical defensive tactics, optimal performance training and essential psychological skills to provide sensible options before, during and after a hostile encounter. This is not karate or traditional martial arts training -- it does not require years of study to perfect. Instruction is based on the belief that we can act competently and decisively, by taking responsibility for our own safety. Core principals of this course: intelligence over emotions, common sense over random action, focus over fear.

Our TMT course begins on Sunday, Oct 4, 2009 from 12 PM-2 PM and meets every Sunday until Nov 1st (five consecutive Sundays). Each 2-hour training session will feature both verbal and hands-on applications, including threat recognition, avoidance strategies and worse case scenarios. The TMT hands-on training will include unarmed, armed and weapons of opportunity.

Ultimately, empowerment is the goal of our R1: TMT program. With no outrageous claims nor irresponsible recommendations, we will encourage and guide you towards mastering the only thing truly master-able... yourself.

For additional information about the R1: TMT or to enroll please go to or call us at 310.322.5552
