We are putting all of the content for our 8 hour course into one weekend for our first “Summer Self Defense Camp”. There are two sessions included in this class, June 24 from 2-6pm and June 25 from 10am-2pm. At the end of these classes you will have the opportunity to participate in our optional live simulation against a “real attacker”. All graduates of this course will have free entry into all of our future Smart Defense classes as well as access to our online video library to further their training. The cost is $250 per person.

The Smart Defense program uses Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Krav Maga, and Muay Thai kickboxing techniques. Each technique is selected to give women the best chance to fight off their attacker and/or create an opening for escape. Each of our instructors has extensive experience in at least one of the above martial arts and goes through specific Smart Defense technique training. Additionally, due to the nature of the subject matter, all of our self-defense class instructors have received survivor advocacy training through the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault. We hope to provide trauma-informed self-defense to all of our students, especially those who are sexual violence survivors. If you would like to learn more about the program please contact us today.
The program includes 8 hours of content and will be held in 2-hour blocks over the course of 4 consecutive weeks.
In addition to our normal course, we offer private sessions, small group sessions, and corporate sessions by request. Inquire for availability and pricing.
