PAWMA Camp 2019 has ended
Welcome to Camp 2019 at Aldersgate in Turner, Oregon! We’re looking forward to seeing everyone and having an exciting and safe camp.

  • Opening Ceremony has changed to the bleachers behind the Auditorium.
  • There were a few schedule changes, but the app is up to date  (as of Friday at 3pm). One schedule change from the camp book (two classes swapped places with each other):
    • Spontaneous Knife Defense is Sunday at 10:45am-12:15pm
    • Basic Pad Blasting Drills is Sunday at 1:45-3:15pm
  • Registration is in the Auditorium. When you check in, please tell us if you’re staying through Monday (so we have an accurate count for breakfast that day).
  • You must check out by 10am on Monday morning. You can store your luggage/stuff in the auditorium.
  • The map in the campbook is old... the map in Sched is better. :)

Chain Locking: An Adaptive Approach to Using Joint Locks in Self-Defense

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

A common complaint about joint locks is that because they involve such fine motor skills, they can be hard to apply without using strength or solid strikes with which you “soften up” the attacker, and even then it can still be hard if you don’t snap it on quickly enough. The purpose of this course is to work with students on using their attacker’s energy to choose, apply and adapt joint locks that make sense for the situation.

Exertion Level: Low intensity
Experience Level: Intermediate to advanced
