Learning self-defense is not just learning to kick and punch an attacker. Self-defense begins with not thinking of oneself as a victim. Attackers choose their victims the way predators choose their prey. They always go after the weak, isolated, young or old because they are an easy target. If you look strong, alert and healthy, you have a much better chance of avoiding an attack. Our expert instructors will teach women the self-confidence and skills required to AVOID BECOMING A VICTIM.
