Women’s Self-Defense Seminar February 25th at Smash Gyms!

Smash Gyms presents – Women’s Self-Defense Seminar!

One of the only self-defense seminars in California that uses fully padded mock assailant instructors. This equipment allows the instructors to teach self-defense to students in an safe but realistic adrenalized state which helps them learn how to fight through the “freeze response” that naturally happens when attacked. This also allows the participants to practice real life application of the techniques with 100% full force for a fun, unique and possibly life-saving experience!

Topics will include..

-Full Force Self Defense in realistic scenarios
-Awareness
-Prevention
-Risk reduction
-Risk avoidance; and
-Self-realization of your own physical power

Smash Gyms Instructors

The Smash Gyms Self-Defense program is ran by  some of the most experienced and professional martial arts instructors in the Bay Area. Expert professionals teach every class.

If you want to truly learn a subject you need to see an authority on the matter. If you want to learn how to throw kicks and punches at the highest level you need to find a kickboxing coach. Nothing makes a person ready, aware, ferocious, in shape like taking our self-defense classes. If you want to protect yourself, control and then submit an attacker in a one on one fight you should take BJJ classes. If you want to learn to knife fight then come to one of our weapons classes! None of these fighting styles is an expert in every situation. Every one of them is an expert in many situations though.
