Women’s Self Defense

The JSD Womens’ program was specifically designed to prepare women for real life threatening situations. The core techniques taught in a continuing 25 class curriculum provide the knowledge and skills for any woman to ESCAPE from her attacker.  

This course is unique because it does not rely exclusively on punching and kicking, as do many other forms of martial arts.

Punching and kicking alone do not represent an effective strategy against an assailant who is bigger, stronger and who is hitting back. In addition, they are useless on the ground, which is where an attacker is most likely to assault a woman.

We teach a principle-based approach that includes strategies using leverage to escape from an attacker. This includes striking, joint locks and choking that lead to rapid mastery with practice.

In addition to empowering women through effective self-defense techniques, the regular practice of our curriculum represents one of the most complete forms of exercise. Students quickly notice an increase in flexibility, muscle strength, endurance and general well being that leads to improvement in confidence and self esteem.
