Upcoming Course
May 3-31, 2022

Every Tuesday from 6–7 pm
The Women's Self-Defense training course offered at the Hidden Teachings dojo is taught by the senior instructors. This class is not about becoming a lethal weapon in a matter of a few weeks, it's about changing your mindset from “This will never happen to me” to “If I am ever confronted, I know how I will handle myself”.

By giving you some mental and physical tools, you can become intentional about protecting yourself and your family. This practical self-defense course builds your confidence to act, to respond, and most importantly, to prevent potentially dangerous situations.

This 5-week course will cover:

  • How to define self-defense
  • Use of force continuum
  • Observation
  • Enhance your safety at home, at work, and while traveling
  • Assessing your situation
  • Assessing your attacker
  • Reaction times and reaction options
  • Preparing for a lost or stolen wallet or purse
  • Chemical irritants (pepper sprays)
  • Stun guns and tasers
  • Facing the fear of an attack
  • Self-defense techniques that work on anyone
  • Kubotan (keyring weapon) techniques
  • Information on safe shelters, YWCA, RAACC, etc and emergency contacts
