This workshop series will focus on self-defense situations at different settings (home, street, college campuses, etc.). The workshops focus on developing the right mindset, confident body language, verbal self-defense skills and physical preparedness to maintain one’s personal safety.
We take you step by step through a variety of real-life scenarios pulled straight from the headlines and teach you how to defend yourself against the most extreme and violent events.
This learning experience is a MUST using practical self-protection strategies in an easy and cooperative learning environment. The workshops are taught by female and male instructors featured this season on “Good Morning America” and the “Daily News.” Each workshop takes different scenarios as the Krav Maga Experts instructors teach you Krav Maga self-defense techniques that will help you be your defense.
We are taking an in-depth look at news stories of violence against women and addressing how you can change the situation. Even if you’ve taken our workshop series before, this round will take you to a new level of training, and to some new locations! This series is open to women ages 14 and up, even if they’ve never taken a Krav Maga class before!

Rape Prevention – Jogger Attacked in Public Bathroom
5/14/2017 From: 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Whether you’re reading a book, hanging in the park with friends, or training for the next marathon as the weather gets warmer spending time outside becomes more and more common – which means spending time in public restrooms or confined waiting spaces is inevitable. As Seattle jogger Kelly Herron learned, joggers are not the only ones who plan to use these areas – Kelly’s attacker hit both her knees and legs immediately taking her to the ground where the fight continued on the bathroom floor…
In this outdoor (weather pending) workshop, you will learn how to defend yourself against a multitude of real-life attacks that might occur while you’re relaxing, walking or running in the park because “this doesn’t have to be a fair fight”.
Rape Prevention – Date Rape
5/28/2017 From: 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Women are conditioned to understand from a very young age that the most important thing is…to be nice, to make others comfortable, and to avoid conflict. For many of us, our value as women is tied up in being polite, unobtrusive peacemakers even at an unacceptable physical and emotional cost.
7/10 survivors of sexual assault know their attackers prior to the assault!
In this workshop we will learn how to respond to a situation in which the attacker is someone we know, maybe even someone we love. We will also learn the characteristics of an “ideal victim” to ensure that we NEVER fall into that category. We will cover multiple sexual assault scenarios based on true life events of one of our own. This installment is NOT TO BE MISSED!
Rape Prevention – Invasion
In Brooklyn, a woman was followed into her building by a man waiting for access to her building.
In California a teenage girl was followed into her home and fought off her attempted rapist in her front hallway.
The safest place is home. Until it’s not.
We will focus this session on teaching you, step-by-step, how to protect yourself from an attack happening in your own home, apartment or dorm room. We understand this topic can be challenging for many, but we fully believe in the necessity of learning to focus and fight through the worse case
