Instructor Certification

Expand your self-defense program and feel confident you're empowering your students with skills they'll never forget.


"We get participants from 13 years of age to 70+, and they’ve all commented on how much they like the course because of its brevity and content. The workshop outline is spot on and really helps deliver the class in a consistent and professional manner."

Gary Glemboski

Global Tactical Training Group, Savannah, GA

Our dynamic one-hour MUNIO Self Defense Workshops are a great option for those who
don’t want to or can’t make the lengthy commitment to traditional martial arts.

MUNIO is not a substitute… but it’s an effective self-defense tool that gives them a safety advantage they otherwise may not have.

Make a difference
for the everyday person

No one should ever have to become a victim. Give them the certainty they need to overcome the bad guys.

Empower them with a self defense tool they'll want to carry with them everywhere and will be able to use effectively
the moment they leave your class.

"I left the class feeling very comfortable with using MUNIO, and I feel much safer. I plan on carrying this everywhere!"

–– Chrissy A.


"Very informative and presented in a fun, memorable way. I hope I never need to use MUNIO, but I now feel safer."

–– Connie B.


"The demonstrations of how to defend myself with MUNIO were so easy to grasp! I feel more empowered now!"

–– Carol L.

Combining Phil's self defense background and Michele's lack of experience in the area, they created the MUNIO Self Defense Workshop to help the average person enhance their instinctive ability with MUNIO and give them the confidence that they can fight back effectively to protect themselves.
