Women’s selfdefense Seminar

There is no better time than now to take control and put your life and the lives of your loved ones, first. The #MeFirst program is designed to equip and empower women of the 21st century with a practical approach to self-defense.

The truth is

Women are disproportionally targeted and taken advantage of by opportunists and predators, the two most common types of attackers. We are also more likely to know our assailant and this creates deeper emotional and psychological barriers to overcome before taking action. #MeFirst is designed to equip you with tools to help you navigate those grey areas and put your safety first.

Each seminar focuses on three key elements: communication, situational awareness and realistic, selfdefense training. It’s important to identify effective verbal and nonverbal communication and the effects they have on potential violent encounters. We’ve all had discussions about locking car doors, mace, parking in well-lit areas, and avoiding alleyways. However, situational awareness goes much deeper than that; such as, paying attention to the deeper social dynamics of our personal lives, discussing how to identify alpha males and discern opportunities for predatory behavior; and avoiding or handling those encounters. Each seminar will focus on different physical attacks with simple, principle-based Krav techniques to combat them.

You offer such an amazing program! I left feeling empowered and wanting more! Thank you for all that you do. Hope to see you again.
Ever since I’ve started training with Caity & Alex, I’ve become more aware, more confident, and have had more fun than I have in a long time. Their studio opens soon and I can’t wait to make this a regular part of my life. It’s not bad cross training for my running either! ⁣🏃🏻‍♀️

I’m so proud of my friends, thankful to be surrounded by awesome women, and sore as hell after our 3 hour seminar!⁣
