Women Only, 14 and up

In our flagship 20-hour course, you will learn verbal and physical defense tactics for a wide range of real-life scenarios including dealing with strangers and people you know. You’ll also work on awareness skills, avoidance and target denial skills and learn about the key role intuition plays in your safety. Our adrenaline-state training and layered teaching style ensures that your body will absorb the techniques and they’ll be with you for life. This class is for anyone regardless of age, fitness level or physical limitations. We work around existing injuries and disabilities to find what works best for your body.

This class answers the questions: what do I do if I’m grabbed from behind and taken to the ground? If confronted by an angry/drunk/nervous/suave guy? If surprised in a pin position (rape scenarios)? Or if grabbed from behind and standing? If you can’t answer these questions now, you need this class. Once you take this class and know in your cells that you can absolutely deal with all the above situations, life seems to flow a little easier.

Despite all the amazing physical skills you’ll gain, the best thing you’ll gain is the ability to not fight: to see trouble coming and avoid it, to talk your way out of sticky situations and keep your grace under pressure.

Six 3.5-hour sessions over six weeks.
Basics Intensive is an accelerated class with four 4-hour sessions over two weeks.
