MAKING AN IMPACT IN OUR COMMUNITY
The epidemic of violence against women is a growing problem, and we are taking action by focusing on healing and prevention. Our program empowers female students with knowledge and skills to protect themselves in violent situations. Some of our female Krav members have experienced violence and have noted significant progress in their healing journey. Along with these members, a significant number of our ladies simply want to learn how to protect themselves although they have never seen violence. Regardless of their history, our women train to prevent being a victim in the future.
THE COMMON BARRIERS
Far too often ladies encounter several roadblocks that prevent them from seeking self-protection training. The most common barriers include intimidation of joining a “fighting” program, finding time to train, and cost of training.
SOLUTIONS TO THE PROBLEM
We have taken steps to remove the most common barriers by providing the following: 1)Private Lessons with a Female Instructor, 2) On ramp training to create a seamless transition to more advanced skills , 3) Women's Only Courses designed to problem solve common attacks and create confidence in their skill set to FIGHT BACK 4) Even working alongside with a local counselors for victims of abuse.

OUR ACTION PLAN
In our eyes it all starts with training to develop a skill set and building confidence. We need to also equip them with information and avenues to rebuild if already broken. This can not be done by us alone so we are assembling a team to assist us with training, counseling, and sponsorships both private and commercial. We need your help to FIGHT BACK for women in our community.
