The Essentials of Self-Protection workshop provides an immediate, practical foundation in self-defense - this version focused specifically on female high school and college students.
The simple, yet effective course teaches the psychology of violent assault - including how to spot and avoid attackers - and emphasizes escape and survival tactics for use against larger, stronger assailants. The course is based on the training methods of security, law enforcement and military professionals, adapted for civilian use.
The complete course includes the following four modules:
- Staying Safe: spotting & avoiding predators
- Slipping Free: evading grabs, holds and abduction attempts
- Striking Back: when, where and how to hit back
- Ground Basics: escaping when pushed or pinned down
Fee: $50 (students in, or about to enter, full-time education only)
