Women Self Defence Workshop

India is the fourth most unsafe country for women, according to a 2011 poll by TrustLaw. When it comes to women’s safety, we rank just above Somalia. According to a recent study concluded by the Home Ministry's National Crime Records Bureau, Violence against women is the fastest-growing crime in India. Every 26 minutes a woman is MOLESTED; Every 34 minutes a RAPE takes place; Every 43 minutes a woman is KIDNAPPED. Self-defense, especially for women, is of prime importance due to the world of power imbalance that we live in today. Women, usually referred to as the weaker sex, as per the stereotype amongst the two genders, are generally considered easy targets. Especially in a country like India where the cases of gender violence are on rise, while many go unreported, self-defense for women has become imperative more than ever. We teach the basics of the self-defense and also how one should react in an unfriendly situation.

We help with:

  • Prominent and easily accessible vital points in human body.
  • Striking and defensive techniques.
  • Fighting stances.
  • Reaction to deter negative intents.
  • Scenarios based attack defense techniques (how people reacted and how should one react).
  • Techniques to tackle multiple attackers..
  • Pepper spray and stun guns operation

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can attend the women’s Self-Defense classes?

Corporate women’s self-defense classes or workshops are designed for adult women. Young women age 15 -17 are welcome to attend with parental permission (signature on our waiver of liability). Girls ages 12 to 14 are welcome to attend when accompanied by an adult female parent or legal guardian.

What should I wear?

Wear comfortable fitness attire that’s easy to move in, such as sweats or stretch pants with t-shirt; typically what you would wear to the gym. SHOES ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE MAT. You can choose to either go barefoot or wear socks.

How could I possibly win a fight against someone bigger and stronger than me?

You don’t need to “win” the fight in the sense of overpowering the other person. All you need to do is deter the attack long enough for you to escape and get to safety. This is something many women and girls have done, often without any prior self-defense training. Girls as young as 5 and women as old as 101 have successfully used physical self-defense to protect themselves.

Can anyone watch or participate with me in the program?

Due to the conversation, and in order to ensure the comfort of all who attend, the class is for women only. Men, other than male co-instructors, are not allowed to attend.
