It’s not martial arts, but a practical application of self-defense for the world we live in. In our program, we teach survival training, not martial arts. Through our exclusive Street Protect Principle™, we can teach you the skills and knowledge needed to protect yourself. Our workshops are open to men, women and children of any age.
Be Prepared and Be Proactive - The journey begins by arming yourself with mental and physical self-defense for your mind and body. You will become more confident, wise, aware and prepared in any situation. We can prevent ourselves from being another statistic of a violent crime. You will learn how to save your life or loved one’s life. While learning self-protection doesn’t guarantee a free pass from abuse or crime, your chance of survival is increased by learning to change your mind set.
Education - Your level of awareness is heighted, intuition is more fine-tuned and most all your physical abilities are sharpened so that your chances of becoming a victim of rape, attack or being murdered are lessened. The point of personal protection is to believe in yourself and what you are doing. When one has a higher degree of self-esteem and confidence, you do not welcome intimidation.
When you believe your life and your loved ones lives are worth living, you will do what it takes to survive or escape a bad situation.
Train Today, Train for Tomorrow - In this life, there are no guarantees. If you make the commitment to train, your chances of survival are greater. In the real world, you will not be unscathed. Survival doesn’t always paint a pretty picture, but you will live to see another day and tell your story. It is your choice.
Personal protection means saving your own life by defending yourself against someone who is purposely trying to harm or kill you! Personal Protection doesn’t come in a roll-on or an Insurance policy. This program is not martial arts, kick boxing or an exercise program. But it will teach you how to not become another victim.
We are approved by the State of Ohio and the Board of Realtors for instruction in personal protection.
Level One: Tactical Control and Diffusion Techniques which, for many private or public security and law enforcement agencies, will be the first phase of legal compliance as it pertains to the control an aggressor. It was developed to control, diffuse and disarm. It is a tactical control system based on most conceivable attacks, and encompasses personal well being, subject safety and full circle liability. All security and law enforcement professionals should be concerned about the potential for litigation. SPP takes away that worry with compliance, diffusion and trigger activation avoidance techniques.
Level Two: Weapons Disarm System for firearms, edge weapons and impact weapons as they pertain to so called "no win" situations. This is a true weapons disarmament system with realistic techniques for the street.
We cover all levels of forces in the State of Ohio.

Educators need to be proactive in safety
Teachers have an obligation to educate and to protect themselves. School children of all ages have been found to be in posession of weapons. Many of these kids know how to use them. Verbal diffusion may only go so far.

Martial Arts will give any child the tools necessary to become a success in life
We live in a time of video games, internet cable TV, and fast food. Inactivity, high calorie diets and physical education budget cut backs are becoming a part of our culture. Petrosino Personal Protection Training Center gives children a positive way to burn calories and socialize with quality friends in a safe setting. We teach the importance of goal setting and reaching for that next level of accomplishment. We also emphasize listening skills and the importance of teamwork in an educational setting.
Martial arts is a great way to kick-start weight loss, physical fitness, toning and building muscle. Each child will will be trained at their own pace based on fitness and ability. Benefits of our program include better health, better balance and an improved sense of psychological well being.
Teaching the values of character, preparation, teamwork and learning that mistakes are inevitable occurrences that we learn from, will help make your child better able to deal with what life throws at them, making their dreams easier to attain.
Good hygiene and physical conditioning are goals that we set at our center to assure our students' health and wellness. With a strong, well developed mindset, we know that a child would be in a far better position to succeed in life.
We teach students how to be more aware of their surroundings, both physical and situational. Knowing one's environment is a key element of personal safety. Sound decisions in life are made more effectively when one sees the full picture, which requires awareness.
The Personal Protection Program at our center is different from any other martial arts or self defense system. This program was designed especially for children as it is not based on size or strength. Your child can learn how to defend against grabs, chokes and bear hugs even if they come from an adult attacker without causing your child any harm. These techniques are proven and easy to learn.
Al Petrosino, owner of Petrosino Personal Protection Center has experience in The Child Safety Network and The National Security Alliance for Missing and Exploited Children. He designed this program to work for any child. He has given numerous seminars on personal safety and personally works with every student as well as working with the After School Programs helping to build children's character.
