What we're about

This meetup group offers training and support to women and young girls who want to protect themselves from attackers, bullies, and predators. Weekly meetings are taught by professional martial arts instructors who specialize in women's self defense. We discuss real-world scenarios in which Self-Preservation training will protect you and even save your lives. We introduce specific skills and techniques that apply to situations women face every day, such as sexual harassment, intimidation, bullying, rape prevention, sexual assault prevention, domestic violence, street crime, home invasion, abduction, and college campus crimes against women.

We serve women all over the San Francisco Bay Area including Mountain View, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Cupertino, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, San Jose, Los Gatos, Aptos, Watsonville, Santa Cruz, San Mateo, Redwood City, Fremont, Milpitas, etc.

Non-profit organizations are welcome to schedule on-site seminars. In the past, our volunteers have conducted self defense workshops for Asian American Recovery Services, Girl Scouts of Los Altos, Women's Support Groups in San Jose, Quota Club, etc.
