Our Mission

Our mission is to empower women with effective, relevant training in the dynamics of assault, assault risk mitigation, and physical self-defense. Our curriculum encompasses stranger attacks, acquaintance attacks, and physical self-defense techniques to escape or prevail.

The Warrior Women Self-Defense curriculum has two formats, a 90-minute seminar appropriate for all women and girls age 10+, and an 8-hour comprehensive self-defense workshop appropriate for all women and girls 12+.

Our Curriculum

Warrior Women self-defense classes improve women’s self-defense capabilities with:

  • Knowledge of asocial and social predator tactics so they can better know when they have been targeted as a victim
  • Non-verbal communication, verbal communication, and boundary management skills to deter a predator
  • Simple and effective physical self-defense techniques

The physical self-defense techniques are based on those needed to thwart the most common attacks on women. The techniques have been carefully selected from numerous martial arts disciplines for their effectiveness and their ease of learning.

Warrior Women Self-Defense classes and workshops are led by women. Strong female role models are an important aspect of instilling a healthy self-defense mentality. Each class has a male co-instructor with qualifying martial arts rank to provide realistic practice to help ensure participants can escape a real attack.

Why Every Woman Should Train in Self-Defense

Women who participate in women’s self-defense classes learn how to be more assertive and better stand up for themselves, which in and of itself makes them less likely to be victimized. When women learn to recognize assault risk situations and how to stop coercive behavior before it escalates, they can better avoid a physical confrontation.

95% of self defense is preventing violence, 5% is reacting to it

If there is a physical confrontation, women who have trained in self-defense are far likely to escape successfully, and escape without injury.

Our goal is to reduce the incidence of violence against women by providing this fundamental anti-assault training to all females age 10 and up.
