Self Defense

Taking a self-defense course is our response to fear, helplessness, and the sense of powerlessness caused by the pervasive violence that surrounds us all. A variety of classes have been designed to educate people on the philosophy behind self-defense, through physical techniques such as, combinations and floor work using releases, strikes and kicks.

Personal Safety

Working to end sexual violence is the responsibility of all of us. Society plays a vital role in this endeavor. Everyone can help by taking a hard and painful look at the attitudes and behaviors that perpetuate sexual violence, and then assess how these behaviors and attitudes support rape and/or child sexual abuse. The Women’s Center of San Joaquin County offers a comprehensive prevention education program which strives to empower children and adults by teaching them to recognize potentially harmful situations and what skills to use for self-protection.
