Our mission is to empower women and teach them self-defense in a safe environment so that they will be able to defend themselves against an attacker. Our mission is for women to have the skills and capability to protect themselves in any situation.

It’s an unfortunate reality that women are susceptible to random acts of aggression, from sexual harassment to physical assaults and rape. But women CAN learn to protect themselves by Fighting LikeAGirl. LettheseNorwoodParkMartialArtscertifiedwoman's self -defense instructors walk you through easy-to-follow, simple steps for taking charge of your personal safety.
The paradox of self-defense is that the more prepared you are, the less likely you are to need it. When you can recognize and respond effectively to potentially dangerous situations, you are more confident in your every day activities. You are also less likely to become a target of crime.
Students will learn which situations are best avoided in order to stay safe. F.L.A.G. provides clear and detailed instruction in the most modern methods for actually fighting off an attacker.

Fight Like A Girl was developed by an Arizona police officer after reviewing over 3,000 actual cases of sexual assault or rape. It is not just a course in awareness and avoidance, but rather an interactive "hands on" program that teaches women the physical skills and techniques necessary to escape these violent situations.
Fight Like A Girl is taught by a team of certified instructors. The training includes practicing techniques full-force on a padded instructor. It emphasizes close-range fighting using a woman's strongest weapons to target the attacker's weakest points. It also includes every day safety skills, which focus on awareness and prevention.
Students are closely monitored as they practice what they have learned. Fight Like A Girl seminars are a safe space for women to learn practical and effective self-defense.
