Basic Self Defense--Women ONLY


Our approach to self defense is based on Real-World tactics that work.  With years of Martial Arts Training and Fighting, it becomes apparent that some techniques work and many others do not.


We will teach you the simple techniques that work.  These are the techniques that our Special Warfare Units are taught to protect themselves in real world combat situations.


Basic Self Defense is a 3 hour course which includes basic methods of self defense and or escape in the event of an attack.  The cost is $50 per student or $85 for two attending together.


We have teamed up with:








Empowering Women to Protect Themselves!  Personal Protection Products for Your Safety!  Damsel in Defense is about equipping women with the tools to not only keep us safe but to give us the confidence to know we have a way out if we ever do feel threatened.  To keep today's college students, moms and singles safe with sassy personal protection.


Their products are AWESOME for anyone, irregardless if they carry a pistol or not.  Lethal force should only be used as a last resort, their products give more options of ways to deal with an attacker.
