Self Defense For Women And Girls

Women and girls have to defend themselves differently than men. We aren't as strong so we have to be smarter.

The element of surprise is our strong point if we have to fight. Staying out of bad situations is key. Staying alert and aware of your environment is vital.

Being fit is necessary if you do find yourself in a situation where you have to fight and fight hard.  is a new website I just launched to help women and girls have the information you need to defend yourselves.

I've been teaching self defense for over a decade. Since my surgery I've not been able to teach so I got stir crazy and developed this website. I just filmed the youtube videos and had to be very careful of my neck. I'm still healing from my spine surgery.

I'm almost a year into recovery but have another year before I'll be able to teach and then I'll need an assistant. Self defense classes do and should get very physical.

Hope you enjoy the website. Let me know what you think!

  1. This is such a great blog! And I agree, all women should definitely learn how to defend themselves. I have a website,, and would love to hear from you! ShareWIK (share What I Know) is a website devoted to bringing together women from all different situations and backgrounds (as well as a few men!) to talk about their experiences and learn from each other. We have a group on ShareWIK called "Weight Loss/Body Image" that could really use your input. Hope to hear from you!
