The 6 classes offered in this course will instruct participant females 16 and over on how to recognize potential threats and respond accordingly. This will allow them to remove themselves from a given situation with the minimal risk identified. They will acknowledge when they have no option but to defend themselves. They will learn how to defend themselves with proper speed, timing, and force. The students will be placed in situations that will require them to defend themselves quickly and effectively focusing on the idea of “fighting to protect and not to hurt.”
