Women’s Self Defense



Girls – Tweens – Women

Do you know what you would do if you were violently attacked? Don’t wait to find out. Every day in the U.S., 9 women are murdered, 600 women are raped or sexually assaulted, and thousands experience domestic violence. Don’t be a statistic! Train your body to fight back and get in shape doing it!  Kick, punch, and knee your way to safety.  Using martial arts principles, our girls’, tween’s, and women’s self-defense classes will train you and your body to anticipate and react to violent assault, not only defensively, but offensively.  Research shows that self-defense training helps prevent sexual assault from occurring. Our curriculum also includes sexual assault prevention strategies and modules for girls and college-age women provided by Dr. Mary Christianakis.  Empower yourself and the women around you!

Our Karate Girls self-defense class is designed for the woman who wants to get fit, while also learning how to defend herself from a potential violent attack. Research shows that women who practice self-defense are less likely to be assaulted. Women and girls learn both self-defense and self-offense martial arts strategies in a fun and safe environment. Classes begin with core, and glute warm-ups and include kicking and punching drills, kicking and punching combinations and self defense strategies aimed to defend against, grabs, holds, tackles, punches, and chokes.

 Join our Karate Girls women’s self defense program and bring a friend to protect yourself for life!
