Self Defense for College Students and Women

Women have to be more aware than ever. Did you know that, according to the U.S. Department of Justice, 1 out of every 4 women will be attacked or raped in her lifetime? Or that 90% of women assaulted knew their assailant? How about that the Women’s Self Defense Institute analyzed 3,000 assaults and found that 50% of the attackers fled from a woman who resisted?

College Prep Defense Course

Safety Sofia specializes in women only self defense training by focusing on empowering women to feel safe any time, any place.

Powered by the Jane Jitsu Women’s Defense Movement, the curriculum of this course will give women a comprehensive approach to remaining safe.

The instruction teaches defensive measures such as awareness training to defend against attacks, on-the-ground defense, escapes, abductions, sexual assault, and rape.

Students will learn to understand the actions necessary to escape from multiple positions of vulnerability, grabs, and chokes.  Students are taught to physically use their own unique strengths against an assailant’s weakest targets and fight out of those assault scenarios.

In addition, this course teaches safety and security best practices to avoid or mitigate the chances of being attacked by understanding indicators of threatening and predatory persons.

Please Note: This is a women focused course that will require hands on physical touch from other participants.
