women's self-defense

Defensive Fighting Systems is proud to offer self-defense training designed empower the women of our community.  The Women’s Self-defense program will build confidence, improve both physical and mental strength, and will teach skills that will help protect against a violent attack. The program is based on the combat system of Krav Maga.  Krav Maga is not a martial art and considered by many to be the best system for realistic street self-defense.  This foundational self-defense training program is designed to be taken by learners with no previous experience in a supportive, encouraging group environment.
