Womens' Self-Defense Classes
JANUARY 2021 UPDATE -- Due to COVID-19, we are currently only doing private lessons with individuals and small private group classes. We will not be doing our Public Women's Self-Defense Class this winter. Please call us at 970-217-0501 for pricing and availability for private lessons and group classes.
Our "Refuse to be a Victim" Women's Self-Defense Classes and private lessons are held at our location. We can also come to you if you’d like to do a private class at your location.
Our level one "Refuse to be a Victim" Women's Self-Defense Class covers verbal self-defense, awareness, body language, assertive behavior, basic striking with elbows, palms, knees and kicks, and wrist and grab escapes. This class is designed to give you the basic skills you need to refuse to be a victim of a violent crime and to make you a "hard target" for criminals.
The class is approximately two hours long, but may go longer depending on questions and any discussion as the class is held.
This class is an excellent way to introduce yourself to self-protection if you’ve never had any training, and a it's a blast with your teenage children and/or a group of friends!
IF YOU HAVE ALREADY TAKEN LEVEL ONE, YOU CAN MOVE ON TO LEVEL TWO
Our Level Two Women's Self-Defense Class moves beyond our "Refuse To Be A Victim" Women's Self-Defense Class to more advanced skills and is approximately 2.5 - 3 hours.
We cover how to:
- Protect yourself if you are knocked to the ground
- Fall safely and keep your attacker from getting on top of you
- Get up quickly and escape
- Get the attacker off if he/she does get on top of you
- How to deal with multiple attackers
- Move to position yourself for striking
Lastly, we work on additional grab attacks we didn't learn in the Level One Class. These attacks include:
- Bear hug from the front and behind
- Rear and side chokes
- Advanced wrist grabs
- Attacker grabbing you from behind and trying to drag you away.
- Avoid a sucker punch
The final part of the class we work on basic knife, gun and club/bat self-defense.
