Need some information on Women's Self Defense for yourself or your teenaged daughter? Call us, we can help.

We offer both short seminars and 4-week courses specifically dealing with women's self defense training. During this course the emphasis is on mind self defense, avoidance, levels of an attack, target areas, striking techniques, purse self defense, and how to escape from various dangerous holds.

The goal of these courses is to teach women of all ages how to defend themselves. Women will develop skills they can use should they ever need to defend themselves.
