Self Defense For Women

We are very excited to offer this 8 week module at the Hub in Hickory, 375 Main Ave NE.  Sessions are each Wed from 5:30-6:30 PM from Jan 5 - Feb 23.

This class is designed to teach participants how to use their strongest weapons against the weakest part of an attacker.  


Each week will incorporate fun new drills that will engage you physically and mentally.  The class format is to learn by doing - lots of fitness, activity, and hands-on.  You will learn various boxing, kick boxing, and muy tai techniques.  We will also practice simple escape techniques for various types of grab attacks.

Self defense is fitness, personal empowerment, focus training, and body awareness all in one.  Sign up today!  The class limit is 10 females (sorry gentlemen - let me know if you are interested and we'll set up another class).

Take your training to the next level with private lessons.  Private boxing, kickboxing, or custom designed self-defense classes are not only fun and empowering but you will also get a great workout.  The training is designed for your fitness levels so don't be intimidated.

Remember my biggest goal is that you have fun!
