The name of the Vitruvian Defensive Solutions finds its roots based on the Roman architect, Marcus Vitruvius Pollio commonly known as Vitruvius. He is known for works in architecture as related to the human body proportions. This proportionality was illustrated by Leonardo de Vinci in his work entitled, “The Vitruvian Man”.


At Vitruvian Defensive Solutions, we provide training that focuses on the relationship of proportionality as related to personal defense and safety.

Vitruvian Defensive Solutions was founded to provide professional defensive and safety training to meet the growing need for quality instruction. Vitruvian Defensive Solutions personal defensive and safety courses are based on everyone’s spatial relationship within the environment and their proportional responses to situations. Our logo brings together these ideas of our relationship to our environment and people. For information on our logo, click here.


Our courses are presented through private lessons and compressed group seminar based training programs that are easily understood and immediately applicable. We offer courses covering both physical and non-physical aspects of personal defensive and safety. We also incorporate principles of cognitive enhancement into our courses to develop strategies to assist in handling stressful situations and anxiety found in confrontations and everyday life.
