Silicon Valley Women’s Self Defense
Defense-ability is changing statistics, one woman at a time. Our goal is to empower, equip and educate women to defend themselves, regardless of age or fitness level. Women’s Self Defense Classes offered by Defense-ability are tailored to the lifestyles of women here in the Silicon Valley and the Bay Area.
My daughter had just graduated from college and was working long hours, traveling on public transportation, and I was really worried about her safety. I heard about Defense-ability from a friend who had attended their safety awareness class, so I signed us up for both of their classes.
I can't tell you how happy I am that we took the classes. Rebecca and Jill are excellent instructors, and talk about self defense in a way that makes it both fun and informational. We learned about avoiding bad situations, and how to defend ourselves against attacks. I also loved the physical training class. It's only a few moves, but they're easy to remember and very effective. They also gave us a printout so that we can re-read the information, and practice the self defense moves at home.
Very satisfied with their service and would recommend them to everyone.
Women’s Self Defense Classes
Students gain critical skills, increase confidence levels, and learn to recognize and avoid potentially dangerous situations they may encounter. Our workshops are small, friendly and relaxed. Our instructors are encouraging and supportive. Our goal is to be sure that each student leaves the class with more confidence in their ability to defend themselves successfully.
Classes are open to women 18 years of age or older (15-17 with parental permission) and designed to be low impact, information packed, and suitable for adults. At Defense-ability you will learn the importance of situational awareness, and how to defend yourself physically.
