Self Defense for women and girls for ages 14 & up


Our Women's Self-Defense teaches practical street self-defense and Girls On Guard system.


Our women's self-defense course focusing on self- defense techniques modi­fied for street and home defense from attackers.


Girls On Guard was developed specificly for women. The techniques are designed based on studies by professional police and safety expects who studied types of situations that are specific to women. After extensive research in actual assault cases, they adapted simple martial arts strikes, kicks, and jiu-jitsu techniques to suit the specific needs of women and girls.


Our courses will teach:


  • Striking, kicking and blocking fundamentals

  • Blocking and countering drills

  • Self-defense techniques against chokes, grabs, bear hugs, and common street attacks

  • Rape/Ground escape techniques

  • Practice self defense scenerios

  • Stress and adrenaline drills

  • Multiple attacker drills


The skills are simple to learn, easy to remember and highly effective.  There are no complex joint locks that take years to master.  Instead, students will rely mostly on major muscle groups that still work even when the fight-or-flight reflex is triggered.  These seminars are for women of all levels of fitness and there is no upper age limit.
