Women’s Self Defense Clinics

It’s time you learn to defend yourself

Join us in a safe and supportive environment as we teach you basic self defense techniques that just might save your life someday. You’ll be instructed by high ranking black belts of Yu Martial Arts of Connecticut. You’ll have a great time meeting new women and discovering the inner strength (mental, emotional and physical) that we all have deep inside of us.

“I cannot tell you how empowering and wonderful the women’s self-defense training was yesterday. The women that attended said that it was by far the best meeting that they’ve been to, and I know that was partially because of what you brought to the event.”Lisa Gentile, PepsiCo, Women’s Inclusion Network (WIN)
