  • Do you ever return to your car during evening time?

  • Do you walk while looking at your phone?

  • Use a parking garage?

  • Jog on a trail alone?

These are all scenarios where women have encountered violence.

Women, don’t be a victim. Learn to protect yourself!
— Jim Cambell

In this seminar you will learn:

  • SITUATIONAL AWARENESS STRATEGIES

  • HOW TO ESCAPE FROM COMMON GRABS, HEADLOCKS, AND BEAR HUGS

  • HOW DEFEND YOURSELF FROM BEING CHOKED

  • HOW TO ESCAPE IF CORNERED OR PUSHED UP AGAINST A WALL

  • SCENARIO BASED TRAINING

 

Now is the time to learn simple & effective strategies for self-defense.

Your self defense strategy can mean the difference between, life and death or catastrophic injury.

Most self-defense strategies taught by amateurs focus on defending force with force. They are missing pragmatic strategies for successfully defending herself from a bigger and stronger opponent.
