Why Best Defense Concepts


Once you’ve decided to learn self-defense, the question becomes why should I choose Best Defense Concepts?

Peter Honigmann, the founder and head instructor, began his training under Grand Master John McSweeney, who obtained his black belt in Kenpo Karate under world-renowned martial artist Ed Parker. It was Master McSweeney who took what he learned under Ed Parker and created a simplified self-defense system focused on powerful strikes. In turn, Peter took what he learned in Kenpo, and combined that with concepts and techniques he learned from Krav Maga, Escrima, and Hapkido, to create a new system that is designed to work for anyone, regardless of size, age or sex.


Peter, a practicing attorney, has been training in martial arts and self-defense for 30 years. As an attorney Peter believes that it is his duty to not only provide his students with the best self-defense techniques possible, but also that he teach his students the basic law of self-defense and the potential legal ramifications. Peter is a strong believer in using the least amount of force necessary to stop a fight. In fact, his best advice for winning a fight – don’t get in one.
