Self Defense Class


Self Defense Stance

Self Defense Class Based on the Bible

Self defense class lessons are given every Tuesday and Thursday evenings 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. at West Park Baptist Church.

The name: “Valour” comes from a Hebrew word found in Joshua 1:14, meaning: courage with honor and strength with virtue.

The class is a complete martial arts curriculum which develops the body through exercise and physical technique; the mind through learning history and philosophy as well as through research; the spirit through Scripture memorization, Bible instruction and encouragement toward spiritual growth and service.

The Valour School of Self defense stands without apology for belief in Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God and the only Savior of mankind and for the Bible as God’s revelation to mankind of Himself, His plan and His purpose.

Student Benefits

Students advance in knowledge, skill and ranking. They also have the opportunity to participate in tournament competitions and Gospel Martial Arts Demonstrations, if they choose to do so.

The classes are lead by Dr. Michael L. McClure who has trained thousands of students from beginner levels to black levels. He has frequently been an instructor in martial arts seminars and/or given Gospel Martial Arts Demonstrations in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, New Mexico, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, Japan and the Philippines. He is recognized as a Master Instructor by several martial arts organizations.

There is NO FEE for the classes. Donations are accepted (there is no minimum or suggested donation). All funds donated are used to cover the expenses of operating the class (use of building, utilities and class supplies). All funds go to the West Park Baptist Church. Instructors are not paid.
