Self Defense

“If the world were a better place, there would be no need to hang April with the dubious distinction of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. “ – Tom Barnidge, columnist, CC Times April 17, 2011
ϖ Every 98 seconds, someone in the US is sexually assaulted (National Sexual Assault Hotline)
ϖ 1 in 5 women will experience rape or sexual assault within their lifetime (Center for Disease Control)
ϖ 3 out of 4 victims knew the person who raped them (Rape Trauma Services 2008)

Our self-defense class includes lecture on how to think smart, with self-defense and empowerment in mind. We typically have a police officer come in and talk about survivor stories and some of the things to do to prevent being a victim.

Then we work on more practical applications and practice using them. To be prepared in case of attack, you need practice, practice, practice. How to get away from a grab, a choke, if pushed to the ground, etc. Practice will make the techniques you learn second nature and the reaction to an attack quicker. You will end the class with a mock attack that you need to get away from. (all in a safe environment)

If you have any questions, please call or email me, or if you want to be notified of upcoming classes. Private group lessons can also be scheduled (offices, girl scouts, soccer teams, graduates, friends – minimum 10).

To schedule your self-defense class, please call 925-671-7100.

Thank you TONS for the fabulous class last Sunday! I had a fabulous time and it felt so good to be active and refreshing myself on actions I’d like to be second nature. The other women were wonderful and your kindness, humor, and patience to all of us made the class delightful. Thank you so much for the wonderful work you do. – Laurie W

Overall, I was very glad I took the class, as it was a long overdue desire to step out of my comfort zone and step into the fear that keeps me feeling vulnerable.  I appreciated how patient you both were as instructors.  I appreciated your passion in sharing your story and wanting to help other women.  I really think everyone should take a class like this. – Terese M
