What is an AVALANCHE? An avalanche is a force of nature that when it’s in motion, can destroy everything in its path. It’s cold, brutal and unstoppable. An avalanche picks up anything in its course and uses these things to add to the destruction it leaves in its wake.

In an unprovoked, violent attack, you must AVALANCHE the situation!

Gross motor, high impact techniques combined with explosive power and endurance will give you the tools you need to turn the predator into prey when time is critical. Avalanches are among the most serious objective natural hazards to life and property due to their destructive capabilities; you must have that effect on an attacker when your life depends on it.
