This is a 4-hour self defense course specifically for women and teens looking to learn all the facets of self defense, not just the physical fighting.
It is open to everyone 14 years old and up, regardless of physical abilities. No self defense technique is guaranteed so our ultimate goal is not to “win” so much as it is to get away safely from a dangerous situation. Believe you are worth fighting for, build your confidence, overcome fear, trust your instincts and apply the skills learned in self defense to confidently defend yourself!
Full Description: This course is designed to introduce you to the strategies, tactics and techniques needed to defend yourself in any potentially dangerous situation. The main goals of the 4-hour self defense course are to increase your awareness of general violence prevention skills, build your confidence in your ability to fight back successfully against an attacker, begin to develop the mindset that you have the right to defend yourself, teach you the strategies and tactics that can be used to potentially prevent an attack, and introduce you to basic techniques that you can use to defend yourself physically and to win a fight in a dangerous or potentially lethal situation. Topics include critical aspects of the predator mindset, setting clear boundaries and recognizing red flag predator behaviors, the survivor (or winner) mindset, situational awareness, de-escalation and risk reduction through assertiveness, legalities of self defense, personal protection device options, and physical defense techniques. We utilize lecture, discussion, handouts, demonstration and practice to equip you with confidence in your ability to defend yourself and in encouraging a defiant and aggressive attitude toward an attacker. Each class is unique and customized for the participants present in class.
