Self Defense Programs

Specialized offerings for pre-teens, teens and women. Classes cover awareness, trouble indicators, dealing with bullies/predators, safety concerns, escape options and physical self-defense in an age and gender appropriate manner.

Self-defense is about making intelligent decisions using common sense approaches to recognizing and avoiding dangerous situations. If you can avoid a situation altogether, then a possible violent encounter never happens.

The number one rule of self-defense is “don’t be there”. Don’t place yourself in a situation that may require you to go on the defensive to stay safe. However, in some cases you may have no choice in the matter and may be required to use physical force.  

Classes cover the following major self-defense topics: 

  1. Threat recognition
  2. Avoidance
  3. Taking action
    • De-escalation
    • Escape
    • Physical self-defense

The majority of principles for self-defense are mental. These programs arm you with knowledge to improve your chances of avoiding potentially dangerous situations.

We offer two approaches for self-defense training:

From a workshop attendee:

"I just wanted to let you and your helpers know that I was able to put some of the lessons you taught us into practice last week. My situation didn't escalate to becoming physical, but because of your class I wasn't afraid to be vocal and let the attacker know that I wasn't going to give them anything without a very loud fight. Once I stood my ground, yelled at the attacker to leave me alone and to go away he turned around and hustled off.

So thank you for teaching me to be aware and prepared in situations. Because of this class I didn't clam up like I usually did went faced with a confrontation."
