+ Women's Training

Our women's trainings incorporate a mix of verbal, physical, and awareness skills intended to be accessible regardless of experience or level of fitness. We discuss strategies to stay safe and build a community of resistance to violence. Our trainings are excellent opportunities for women to get together, share experiences, and learn life saving self defense skills. Women from varied backgrounds, age groups, walks of life, and reasons for wanting to train all bring something unique and essential to our trainings.

Whether learning a new physical technique, participating in one of our discussions, or bringing their friends and relatives to trainings, the women who come to train each week are our inspiration for continuing our work.
