SHIELD Women's Self Defense will be taught in TANZANIA!

Over 20% of women over the age of 12 have been raped in Tanzania. SHIELD Women's Self Defense has been commissioned to provide women's self defense training in Tanzania. 


The trip will focus on self defense training of the implementers of the 4 Empower Tanzania health programs: 


Improving Women's Health Program (IWHP) - has 33 women Community Health Educators (CHEs) who do presentations to their fellow community members on various topics. They present to over 20,000 people per month. 


Community-Hospital Alliance Program (CHAP) - has 34 Maasai women Community Health Workers (CHWs) who present health education topics, but are also trained to provide basic triage, healthcare and hospital referral services to their fellow Maasai in the remote villages where they live. 


Beyond Gender-Based Violence (BGBV) - These 99 women are survivors of gender-based violence selected by their communities for this program. 


Reproductive Health and Relationships Program (RHRP) - This program trained 38 teachers in 19 schools on comprehensive sexuality education and relationships topics to be presented in a one-year-long curriculum. The 38 "champion" teachers will train 365 additional teachers educating 11,000 students using SHIELD curriculum and lesson plans.

SHIELD Women's Self Defense System ®

Since 2003, SHIELD Women's Self Defense System ® empowers women and girls by training them on how to fight back a much stronger opponent in close-range situations. Unlike other self defense or martial arts, SHIELD emphasizes on using leverage and lower body strength to generate power.  Based on a mixture of martial arts principles, self-defense and street  fighting skills, SHIELD Women's Self Defense System was created exclusively for women & girls. 


The logic is simple, to get used to something, we first have to experience it. We can't swim without going in the water. The difference between fear and terror is in knowing what to do. When we know what to do, fear is a motivation ally. When we don't know what to do, or have never experienced it, we will freeze in terror because we have no clear goal on how to respond. The difference is in the TRAINING!

Student's Testimonial - Kristen, FOX Entertainment Group

"Right from the first class, we were immersed in drills that gave us first hand experience about what it was like to be jolted (off balance) and attacked. No part of our bodies was safe; throat, hair, sneak   attacks from behind, being lifted off the ground. All of these scenarios sound terrifying. Yet Nelson helped us to experience and free ourselves from discomfort and anxiety. This went far beyond  mental  preparation. My body quickly adapted to aggressive physical  contact, and instinctively “knew” how react in order to defend and free myself. And how to turn the tables on an attacker. No situation left me frozen in fear or pain.  This was remarkable feeling for me!


I have been urging friends to take this  incredible course. The moves  are so basic, so easy. This is the only  self defense course that has  been so liberating for me....(con't to Endorsement page)
