Hits Like a girl

program Overview

Hits Like A Girl is our Women's Self Defense program, designed to teach simple and effective defense tactics to empower women with the self-confidence and tools needed to feel safe and secure in an unsafe world. By using leverage, angles, and proper positioning, women will be able to not only level the playing field, but gain the upper hand in a self-defense scenario.

This program is focused on Establishing a B.A.S.E.

  • Boundaries
  • Awareness
  • Survival
  • Escape

Women who enroll will be taught the importance of creating boundaries, how to read conversational cues, how to be environmentally aware, how to defend themselves against the most common attack scenarios, and how to create exit strategies.

program outline

We instruct on a cycle, building up from a simple wrist grab and ending with weapons defense. Since this is an ongoing program, it allows the practitioner to learn at their own pace. Once the student has completed three full cycles of all the techniques, they will be eligible for their test, and can earn their pink belt!

What to Bring

  • Water!
  • A comfortable shirt with sleeves (we recommend Dri-fit, rashguard, or a 50/50 blend of cotton and poly), no tank tops or sleeveless shirts
  • A notebook, we cover many different topics and it helps to have a resource to review outside of class
