Welcome to the Women's Self-Defense Institute
Women's Self-Defense Institute provides realistic, effective self-defense training for today's busy female.
The mission at Women's Self-Defense Institute is simple - empowering you to fight back against crime.
By providing you training and education in:Awareness
Risk avoidance; and
Self-realization of your own physical power
These tools greatly increase your personal protection options to combat crime.
The paradox of self-defense is that the more prepared you are, the less likely you are to need it. When you can recognize and respond effectively to potentially dangerous situations, you are more confident in your every day activities. You are also less likely to become a target of crime.
At Women's Self-Defense Institute we believe that women’s self-defense training is more than just kicking and punching. We assist women in three ways to combat crime:
- By Engaging the Mind we help you identify and recognize early warning signals, criminal processes and how criminals operate;
- By Educating the Body we teach you hands-on effective, easy to learn techniques that maximize damage while not relying on strength; and
- By Empowering the Spirit we build your survival mindset™ to ensure your own personal safety.
Let our experience and training work for you!
As women, our self-defense training consisted of having been taught not to hit or fight back. That someone else will protect us. Unfortunately, the statistics show that the “someone else” usually turns out to be our attacker/abuser.
We face multiple challenges and obstacles as women when seeking self-defence and personal safety training. The largest obstacle for most women is finding a competent, quality, no testosterone bs filled, training site with skilled, competent, easy going professional women's self-defense trainers who understand the challenges we face as women and what we will, and won’t do, in our defense. And most importantly, who can make us laugh and relax while still tackling a serious subject.
That’s where Women’s Self-Defense Institute excels. We present information in clear, concise training formats so you can easily walk out of class and immediately implement the self-defense training strategies you’ve learned.
Most people believe it takes years to learn effective women's self-defense. Well, it doesn’t. We can empower you by giving you the skills and confidence you need to identify, avoid and survive crime by preparing you both mentally and physically for today’s violence.
Women’s Self-Defense Institute is the only complete women’s self-defense system in the world. By “complete” we mean that you will learn not only how to survive violence, but how to recognize pre-conflict indicators and to be aware of post-conflict dangers.
