The core of our After School Program is SHIELD Women's Self Defense training and Character Development Program. Our self defense training is a very practical self defense training designed empower a smaller person against a much bigger opponent.

SHIELD After School Program will teach your daughter how to have confidence and how to be safe around bullies and strangers! They will learn how to do: Palm Strikes, Elbow Strikes, Knee Strikes, Kicking, Blocking, Takedowns, and Grappling in our after school program!
The drills we do are fun exercises that are designed to increase your ability to move and change direction and body positioning, quickly and effectively, while under control. It increases quick reflexes, coordination, balance, speed, and agility.
Our after school program includes Character Development workshops.
Good character is a person’s most valuable possession. It is the essential key to success in school, in work, and in one’s family life. There are many things in life that we cannot change, like our height or who our parents are; our character, however, is one of the things we can change.
Students will discover the connection between character and habits, understand the difference between individual acts and habits, and learn the seven-step approach to habit formation and habit elimination. Our Character Development workshops are held in our after school program throughout the school year.
We conduct various mini workshops in the after school program:
I have to say that SHIELD women’s self defense after school program and the summer camp helped Liana gain so much confidence. It was really the best thing for her.
She is really a different little girl. She is thriving in her new school and is not being bullied like she used to be.
Her confidence and ability to speak up for herself are skills she learned at SHIELD and she has not forgotten the skills she was taught. We miss you a lot.
I just wanted to thank you on behalf of myself and Hannah.
The topics discussed and skills they learned are crucial for their upcoming years in middle school and beyond. You and your staff have a very important job and you all do it with grace, humility, and intelligence. I will be recommending you to all our friends. Keep up the good work!
I am grateful to SHIELD Women's Self-Defense for giving my daughter the confidence she deserves to move freely in the world, knowing that she has the power - and the permission - to defend herself, should a situation arise that demands it.
