I followed Rebecca's 3 hours session with my daughter (16) and a friend of her.
It was a great experience. We have learned how to better protect ourselves, be aware of our surroundings, how to react quickly and the smartest way possible. We practice basic techniques, simple but efficient, the ones you will be more likely to remember and be able to pratice at home. All this in a fun way! We will definitively go back to refresh this great tips which could save your life.
Do not hesitate to contact her and book the workshop which suits your needs the best, she has the one for you!
Rebecca did such a great job going through the motions of self-defense with us. In such a short span, I learned so much about self-awareness, how to assess a situation you've run into, and how to disable your attacker in many different scenarios. She is so passionate about her work and has so much experience that I believe everyone should go through at least one session of self-defense with her. Thanks for sharing your knowledge Rebecca!
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.

If you can’t find a class that fits your schedule, why not book a private class? Get a few of your friends, neighbors or co-workers to join you! With as few as ten students we can bring the class to you – or we’ll teach your group at one of the private facilities we use.
