What we're about
This Meetup was started because some of my women friends had become concerned for their personal safety after a series of attacks in the Mission. They no longer felt safe going out to their favorite hang outs.
I had taught women's self-defense classes before and asked if they would be interested. Obviously they said yes.
We will focus on 3 main areas of self-defense: awareness, evasion and escape. Where escape is the worst case-scenario in which you have to physically engage an attacker.
There will be 2-3 hour workshops in how to stay safe in the streets of San Francisco (or anywhere else). No experience or athletic ability is required.
Though this group is focused on self-defense and safety for women, men are welcome to attend and participate.
As the group grows we will have some social functions too.
