Who are the Defense Mechanics?
The Defense Mechanics are a group of like minded, long term martial artists in the Northwest Corner of Connecticut. Together we have 41 years of combined martial arts experience.
As a group we are interested in providing women with a system of self defense methodologies tailored to the female body's natural strengths.
Kitty Visconti - Tae Kwon Do
Bradley Visconti - Tae Kwon Do
Joel Minton - Aikido
Our mission is to provide women an alternative system of self defense that is NOT a watered down version of an existing martial art. We are not interested in training women to fight like men. Training women to fight like men is not a smart strategy for a personal security system. We prefer to train women to maximize, then bring their particular strengths to a conflict while minimizing the strengths of a male attacker.
