By using proper technique and leverage, women have the ability to overcome larger assailants both on and off the mats. Unlike most self-defense systems that rely heavily on strength, speed, and coordination, the techniques in the Women’s Self Defense Seminar employ leverage, technique, and timing, so anyone, regardless of age or athletic ability, can make them work against larger opponents. While many women often feel intimidated in joining a close contact sport in a larger group setting, this seminar provides an easy transition for women into jujutsu, a classical Japanese martial art. This Seminar will cover fundamental techniques and is suitable for all experience levels.
In addition, quite some hours are spend on awareness, self-confidence, nonverbal skills, posture, positioning, parking lot safety, domestic protection, and verbal deescalation.
For teenager women ages 13 and up. All participants end the seminar with an exam to earn an Empowered by Happiness ® belt and certificate.
