Women's Self-Defense

Women’s Self-Defense is a FREE, nationwide program that teaches self-defense options to women to use if confronted by an aggressor. Those options, when used correctly, will allow potential victims to escape their attacker.

Hands-on experience helps women test their skills in a crisis and discover their own special strengths and talents. The Women’s Self-Defense program is designed to give women confidence, awareness and a security plan.

Each session consists of 3 day / 4 hours per day classes of instruction. At least two certified police officers are on hand at each class to teach women’s self-defense.
