ABOUT

Self Defense for the People™ is a unique program for everyone who wants to learn street-smart self defense to protect themselves, their loved ones, and their peers. We believe de-escalation and verbal self defense are just as important as physical defense techniques.

 

Classes are taught in a simple and effective manner for all people regardless of fitness level or age. No prior experience in self defense is required. This is a program that provides experienced instructors and lessons in a nurturing and supportive space.

 

Classes can be in the studio or at your workplace, and will focus on urban situations like your daily commute or the specific context of your work environment.

Think your workplace or organization needs a basic self defense class? Office in a rougher neighborhood?

 

A separate option from our regular programs, these workshops have our skilled instructors come to your environment to teach your staff simple street smarts and self defense techniques.

 

Examples of industries we've worked with include: law enforcement, hospitality, retail, and healthcare.

 

SELF DEFENSE CLASSES FOR WOMEN

There are circumstances and perspectives that are unique to women, such as cat calling, sexual assault scenarios, hair pulls, purse snatching, and more. In these classes, we address contexts that are more relevant to women than men.

 
 

GENERAL SELF DEFENSE CLASSES

Learn how to defend yourself in everyday urban situations, such as riding the bus or waiting for BART, going to your car, leaving work late, or even during social situations at the end of the day.

 

Aside from teaching defensive footwork, defense against punches, grabs, chokes, and more, you will also gain knowledge of how to use everyday items as tools for self defense.

 

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“This was the first time that our organization took a self-defense class. For many of us, it was our first time in taking any self-defense class. We learned different forms of self-defense, from how we carry ourselves to being more aware of our surroundings to being in physical contact with someone. A participant expressed that after taking the class, she felt more encouraged to speak out if someone has intruded her comfort zone. Also, the instructor was respectful and kept us engaged throughout the whole class.”
