Making Strong Women Stronger


Conventionally, many people believe self-defense is an ability possessed only by those who are strong enough or have trained in martial arts regularly for years. With our modern approach we break down this misconception and teach you how to use your self-confidence and utilize your greatest strengths during a threatening situation.

Self-defense training requires mental and physical education – in our class you will receive both. The curriculum utilizes your pre-existing physical skills while breaking through psychological and cultural barriers that challenge women on a daily basis.   

Physical Training Basics Include:


  • Mitigation of various threatening grabs & chokes
  • Going-to-the-ground scenarios
  • Ground defenses

 Classroom Topics Include:


  • The psychology of victimization & aggressors
  • Situational awareness
  • Cultural expectations and how they challenge your confidence
  • Sexual assault psychology
  • Confidence, not fear
