ABC Women’s Self-Defense
Anshin Kai Martial Arts is the Maryland Representative for ABC Women’s SelfDefense.
Our classes are a fun, exciting, and critically acclaimed women’s personal safety and empowerment program. ABC teaches self-defense and effective strategies to recognize, avoid, and respond to unwanted encounters or physical violence perpetrated by strangers and/or people you know. Classes are taught by trained, qualified instructors, in a positive and supportive environment.
ABC works to prevent violence and abuse by giving people the essential tools they need to protect themselves and their loved ones, promote healthy relationships, and facilitate respect in their communities and society. ABC classes are designed to teach self-protection strategies that are effective regardless of size, age, or fitness level.
ABC Women’s Self-Defense is the culmination of more than 30 years of training, research, and development and is the premier women’s self-defense and empowerment program in the Capital District. We have taught thousands of women the skills and attitudes they need to stay safe!
One in four women will be a victim of violence in their lifetime!
This means if it’s not YOU, then it’s probably a friend, family member, coworker, or even a loved one. Understanding the risks and learning how to be aware of yourself and your surroundings can reduce your chances of being a victim. Doesn’t it make sense to be AWARE before it’s too late?
You don’t need anyone’s permission to be safe!
NO ONE has the right to violate your boundaries! Unfortunately, society has conditioned people to “be nice”, oftentimes at risk of their own safety! Learn how to establish those boundaries, how and when to say NO, and how to avoid potentially dangerous situations.
You CAN learn to protect
yourself and your loved ones!
Ideally, you’ll never have to use these skills, but just like insurance, it’s good to have them “just in case.” ABC Women’s Self-Defense teaches you easy-to-learn techniques and easy-to-remember strategies to defend yourself, fight back, and buy you the time you need to get away and BE SAFE!
