Martial Arts program for 8-18 years old to teach women, children and men how to set appropriate boundaries and to defend them when necessary with training in situational awareness and self-defense.

Book Training: Fight Like A Girl

Human trafficking uses fear, manipulation and control to strip the victim of their ability to make choices and feel empowered. Our karate programs build confidence and self-esteem in our students. We teach them to set and achieve goals while respecting themselves and others. We do so in a safe, structured environment where our trained instructors keep them motivated and wanting more. They will also learn self-defense and interpersonal communication skills that will last a lifetime. Our youth get better grades, make more friends, and work towards their black belts. We build confidence and in the process attendees receive information about human trafficking.

Number of Fight Like A Girl, Fight For a Girl Trainings we have held since 2013

We create ways to bring self-defense and empowerment together while providing skills for immediate use. 
Even during seasons of recidivism these skills save lives!
