See you every Friday, 5:00-6:00 for FREE!
Learn methods for preventing confrontations from turning physical and setting verbal boundaries in a non-confrontational stance. Women's Only Self-Defense is offered FREE to women aged 16+ every Friday, 5:00-6:00 pm. No pre-registration is required. Please dress in athletic clothing and be prepared to train barefoot.
Be empowered. Be prepared.
The best self-defense strategies and techniques work equally well for men and women, but let’s face it: Women really need them because they’re assaulted more often than men. Statistics indicate that one in three women will be the victim of some type of violent attack in her lifetime. Women also endure more incidents of verbal and sexual harassment.
Women's self-defense here at LJJA includes methods for preventing a confrontation from turning physical in the first place. Learning how to steer away from a threat may not sound as exciting as ripping out an attacker’s heart, but as they say in every beginner’s class, evading an attack is always superior to blocking an attack.
Note: This program is for adults (16+*) only.

Women's Self-Defense FAQ
"Personal safety is about choices and circumstance," says Don Seiler, owner of Kodokan-Seiler Dojo in Minnesota and author of Karate Do: Traditional Training for All Styles. "And while you can't always control the latter, you certainly can control the former. You need to have a complete personal protection strategy and embed that into your lifestyle so it simply becomes habit."
Other self-defense experts agree. "Knowledge is power. You will have more confidence if you know where and how to strike if you need to defend yourself," says Robert Fletcher, MMA strength and conditioning coach and founder of America's Next Great Trainer.
At LJJA, we understand the importance of self-defense for women. In fact, we emphasize it. We’d love to see you take part in this movement!
