SHIELD Women's Self Defense Los Angeles

Classes and Workshops
(Best viewed on Desktop/Laptop. Mobile version is coming soon.)

Not all self defense classes are created equal. Not only the techniques are different - the approach, the method used, and the way it is explained can be as different as night and day.

Our self defense workshops are suitable for businesses, colleges, high schools, private groups and private lessons. The training can be at our studio in Culver City or at client's location. The training can be a one time self defense workshop or weekly self defense training. We can customize the training to suit your needs.

Start date is the same for 5-Week or 3-Month program. 

Students completing this course will experience what it is like to be attacked from all sides, being jolted off the ground, and fight back with full force against a padded assailant. Students will learn how to use the core and lower body strength to generate power in striking back.
