Our Women's Self Defense Course is designed and taught by an active memeber of the police department.

One Day Intensive Course:

This Program is specifically designed to empower women with basic skills and awareness in self protection. You will learn fundamental skills to avoid and detract attackers, as well as technical skills to defend yourself in both standing attacks and those that occur/end up on the ground. You will learn how to strike and move with intention, and you will gain practical understanding and awareness that will start you on your path to proficiency in self defense and the martial art of Jiu Jitsu.












Practice makes permanent; this course will provide you the opportunity to repeatedly practice these skills, work with various partners of all shapes and sizes, and drill scenarios  to gain confidence and skill.
