Women's Self-Defense Workshop Emeryville

Self Defense is a serious business! It doesn't matter who you are or where you come from, you deserve the right to stay free from harm at the hands of others. With this in mind, we are offering a special 8-week self defense course.
We will teach you the most reliable self-defense techniques for the most common attack situations ranging from hair grabbing to being pinned on the ground by and armed assailant. Rather than relying on strength to defend against a stronger opponent, you will learn the basic techniques of Martial Arts including the principles of leverage, timing, and energy efficiency. As a bonus, you will get a great workout! Regardless of your age, weight, or fitness level you can learn the techniques of self-defense while gaining an increased sense of personal confidence and empowerment.
Classes are designed to teach a specific self-defense technique with skills building over time. Each class starts with a series of warm-up exercises, followed by instruction in a specific skill with technique practice with a partner. The class ends with partner drills to build confidence and strengthen reflexes. Please wear comfortable workout/yoga clothing.
