Due to the high rate of sexual assault & teen pregnancy, SHIELD Women's Self Defense was hired to visit the Same District in Tanzania, Africa. Classes were taught daily for 2 weeks for various groups of teachers, school principals, students, police department, survivors of gender based violence, community educators, and the Maasai tribal women. SHIELD Women's Self Defense program is currently a part of the curriculum for 19 schools in Tanzania.

WE OFFER CLASSES FOR KIDS, TEENS AND ADULTS
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!

"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)
