Unarmed Defense for Women
Being able to defend yourself is especially important for women. Being armed with a firearm is not always an option. As an armed alternative, we offer classes on self defense for just those occasions or for those that have no desire to "Carry" a fire arm. We are very fortunate to team up with "Agoge Fitness Systems" at 3020 4th Ave S, Birmingham, AL 35233 to use their facilities to teach these classes. Their facility coupled with our 3 Martial Arts, Self Defense and Firearm Certified Instructors provide our students with "real world" training. Our instructors have taught these techniques in dojos, Universities and to employees in different Embassies and Consulates throughout the world.
WOMEN'S SELF DEFENSE
You have the right to your own personal autonomy. Our Women's Self Defense Course helps ensure you keep that autonomy.
This is not a martial arts class. Martial arts classes are practice sessions that allow you to build upon and develop skills and attributes over time. This is an introductory course aimed at steering your natural defensive actions toward maximum effect. Over the course of five weeks we will explore how to take advantage of the inherent weakness of the human body and how your natural flinch and fear based reactions can be guided to help create space for you to escape a would be attacker. We will cover strikes, blocks, escapes from holds and chokes, and how to escape and prevent sexual assault.
Each class is an hour long. Classes meet Tuesday and Thursday at 5:30 pm. Thanks.
