Women’s Self-Defense Class – Sept 28

Taught by women for women, our September 28th Women’s Self-Defense Class is a great class for women ages 13 & up! Scroll down for time, location, and price. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Books for Bikes charity.

Doris Eastbury, owner & chief instructor of NW School of Martial Arts, will be teaching the class. Doris is a 4th degree black belt with over 25 years of martial arts experience–and has a story or two to tell about why women need self-defense skills!

Class content includes:

  • “5 A’s” of self defense;
  • Walking with confidence: posture & body language tips;
  • How to effectively use your voice;
  • Decision-making: thinking through a self defense situation;
  • Simple, effective release & escapes from standing grabs and holds;
  • What to do if you get knocked to the ground;
  • Simple, effective strikes against vital targets.

Protecting yourself shouldn’t be complicated or confusing. We keep the techniques simple, and we break information down into easy-to-remember points (like the 5 A’s and a girl’s best 3 weapons).

My daughter, Julie Holmes, and I would like to sign up/register for the women’s self defense class. How do we do it? How do we pay or can we pay the day of the event?

Hi, Charlene! I’ll send you a more detailed email here in a moment. The short answer is all you have to do is tell us you’re coming, and yes, you can pay on the day of the event. 🙂 –Sensei Caitlin
