In an atmosphere of support, students learn to de-escalate or escape potentially violent situations through assertiveness, confrontation and self-defense techniques. Students will learn boundary assertion skills, physical defenses against grabs, bear hugs, pinned situations, and other types of assault. Class format includes discussions, physical training, and information about support services.

While self-defense is an intricate part of our martial arts program, we also offer self-defense seminars.

Group Self-Defense Seminars:


These 3-hour seminars focus on the importance of awareness and avoidance as well as some basic strikes and escapes.  The focus of each seminar is designed especially to meet your group’s needs.  In the past, we have offered women-only, teen-only, and teens-entering college seminars, just to name a few.

Contact us for more information if you are interested in scheduling a seminar for your group.

Each participant (if not already a WSAMA student) must complete a safety waiver. Please print and bring along with you to your class.
