The Women’s Self Defense classes, lead by a Certified Tsun Jo® Women's Self Defense Specialist, will cover the most essential and effective self defense moves.   The curriculum includes a combination of skills and knowledge that is easy to remember and simple to employ.  This can add up to a transformative awareness for self defense.  


How Do I Get Started:

You get started by first attending a monthly workshop offered on the second Saturday of every month.  


Monthly Introductory Workshops are two hours long, while the monthly Focus Workshops are 90 minutes.  If you choose to book private/semi-private lessons, there is flexibility allowing for 60−120 minutes for each session depending on your needs and goals. 


We also offer ongoing training every Tuesday from 7:35 - 8:30p.  This class is offered through membership or may be purchased by session.  **However, all students must first attend an introductory class or Women's Self Defense Workshop before attending the weekly training.  Either of these can be booked at   


The training is very informative and well structured.  Only effective moves are taught.  Each participant will be provided with handouts so that important information can be reviewed again after the workshop.


The benefits of greater peace of mind, preparedness and confidence can really make a difference!

Read what past participants have had to say:


"I attended the Women's Self-Defense Workshop, and having little to no knowledge of martial arts, I had no idea what to expect. Well, this class was a blast! I learned so much, the instructors were patient (very important to strong but uncoordinated people like me!), and I left the session fully energized and armed with great techniques. Highly recommended and fun." ~ Rae


"Great fun and a helluva workout. This also confirmed that I am a lot stronger than coordinated - gotta work on the latter."   ~Arlene


"This was really fun! I'm definitely going back." ~Diane


"Fantastic!" ~Ryan


"I so want to keep doing this! MUCH better than working out by myself on treadmill!" ~Shannon
