Self Defence Short-Course for Women

This Self Defence Short-Course for Women builds on the skills and principles of the Workshop.
However, attendence at a Workshop is NOT a prerequisite for attendance.

Many Workshop attendees really valued the content, and wanted an opportunity to practice. This is it!

Studies show a relationship between self defence or assertiveness training and women’s physical and psychological responses to subsequent attacks.

Victims with pre-assault training were less likely to be assaulted (1) and more likely to resist (2). Further, that resistance stopped the offender or made him less aggressive than victims without training (2). Women with training before the assaults were angrier and less scared during the incident than women without training (2). Learning self defence skills can make a difference. Keeping them sharp and effective can change lives.
