Women Only Self Defense

We offer FREE women only self-defense classes.  These classes are designed specifically for women, to help them defend themselves in any situation, but with special emphasis on sexual assault / rape prevention.

These free seminar style classes normally take place the 3rd Wednesday of every month at the Alliance Against Violence and Sexual Assault at 1921 19th St.

 We can also set up a private seminar just for you, at our school or any suitable location!  Call for more information!  661-472-1884

We have been teaching this class since 2001.  Our lessons are based on various styles of martial arts and have been developed through research and input from law enforcement officers.  We are always professional and will ensure that you are comfortable while we challenge you physically and mentally to prepare yourself for the world.

NEW - We have just opened a REGULAR class for women only,  Mon thru Thu from 4:30-5:45pm at our main facility inside East Hills Mall!  Come try a class free and if you like it, sign up for just $60 / mo!!!

The women's self defense tactics used are simple, easy to remember, and work against a bigger stronger opponent.  We cover escapes from standing positions and on the ground, from someone picking you up, grabbing your hair, wrist, etc.  We want you to be safe no matter what!


Many women have a tremendous fear of physical violence and aggression.  It is important to overcome this fear and we will help you do just that!  Many women have told me "I can't do that.  It won't work.  It's too hard," etc.  These are all mental blocks that many women face.  The answer to the problem is this:  What if it DOES work?  I can't guarantee anything will work.  However, if you don't try and fight back, I can guarantee you will not defend yourself if you ever need to (God forbid).   Many times just knowing a little something gives you the confidence to fight back.  Even just trying to fight back can mean the difference between life and death, between being a victim or a champion!  Furthermore, showing confidence helps prevent an assault because an attacker will sense that you are not an easy target.


Many of the women in our self defense class, present and past, have changed their lives dramatically.  A few have even been attacked and successfully defended themselves using self defense lessons we taught them.  We are so proud of these women.  We hope they can be an inspiration to you, to give it a try, and to prove that it DOES work.  You CAN fight back.  You can live without fear!
