Women's Self Defense

What is 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, each beginning at 6:45 p.m.  At least two certified police officers are on hand at each class to teach Women's Self Defense.

Who Can Participate?

Females who are 13 years or older can take the Women's Self Defense course.  Women can also take the course as many times as desired to keep abreast of the latest self-defense and safety techniques.

 

What Topics Are Covered?

The Women's Self Defense instructors conduct group discussions and demonstrations on the following topics:

  • Definitions of types of sexual assaults

  • Lawful means of self-defense

  • Abduction

  • Risk awareness, recognition, reduction and avoidance

  • Self-defense techniques

  • Voluntary opportunity to practice self-defense techniques with a certified instructor

*And MUCH MORE!*

The next Women’s Self Defense Course is on the evenings of September 29, 30, & October 2, from 6:30 p.m. – 10 p.m. You must attend all three nights to sign up for the class. Please sign up below
