Upcoming Self Defense Classes

Check out these upcoming classes with Defend Yourself!


In this eight-week class, you’ll learn how to deal almost everything, from harassment and other verbal situations that make you uncomfortable all the way to physical attacks. You’ll learn to defend yourself from the ground (not just standing up); you’ll practice almost-infinite varieties of verbal and physical defense scenarios so that the skills are part of your “muscle memory” and you can rely on them when there’s no time to think.

Call, email, or check the web site if you want details.
