Women's Self Defense

The focus of the training is on the importance of awareness, prevention, streetwise precaution and most importantly, self defense. This training is both lecture and hands-on. Physical activity is encouraged, but not required.  During the hands-on portion of this training you will literally be “hands on”.  Many women have found that signing up with a friend makes this portion of the training a bit more comfortable.

Participants are asked to wear athletic type clothing, with no buttons or zippers. Socks and long sleeve shirts are required. Participants are encouraged to bring a water bottle and a light snack.

Enrollment is open to females 13 years of age or older; however, anyone under the age of 17 must be accompanied by an adult. The course is FREE, but you MUST pre-register. To register, call 816-413-3500 or email

Most class sessions are 8 am to noon.

This course is limited to 50 participants.
