Our Young Adult "On Her Own" course is geared to the young woman (age 17-22) who is recently out on her own, attending college or starting a first full-time job. The focus is on preventing stranger, acquaintance and relationship physical and sexual violence. This course gives students the opportunity to practice full-force self-defense on instructors in well-padded suits who play the role of an assailant. By practicing techniques full-force our students experience the benefits of "muscle memory" so their bodies will remember the techniques in a crisis situation. Verbal and physical boundary-setting is also practiced to de-escalate situations before they become physical. We teach in an emotionally supportive environment conducive to learning and healing.
Scholarships and Payment plans are available.
Note: This class is usually offered only in August and December.
