Do you want to learn to be competent to defend yourself and your family against violent attack? But, have little or no experience in unarmed self-defense or firearms as a self-defense tool; this class is for you. The class begins with an element on the mindset and the level of situational awareness that is required to correctly read the situations around you. In so doing, you will automatically make yourself a less appealing target for violent attack. We then move into an element of fundamental empty-hand or unarmed self defense. DO NOT BE AFRAID OF THIS KIND OF TRAINING. We are experienced at working around any kind of disabilities you may have, giving you the best options you may be capable of. Remember, not everyone can do everything, but everyone can do something, and we are experts at helping you maximize your defensive capabilities within your physical abilities. Keep in mind, the reality is, without the ability to see an attack coming, and react to it correctly, you will not be able to buy yourself enough time and space to either escape or get your handgun into the fight. WITHOUT THESE SKILLS, YOU ARE NOT SAFER EVEN IF YOU CARRY A GUN. Once we have established the foundational skills of mindset, situational awareness, and basic unarmed self-defense, we will build on those skills as we teach you pistol safety, and proper stance, alignment, and grip. These fundamentals will build tactical accuracy. By the end of the day, you will be tired, but you will have learned some valuable and perhaps life-saving lessons. You will have established a fundamental skill set at a level that will allow you to build on those skills as you continue down the road to self-defense competence. You may decide to train further and enhance those skills or be content knowing that you have already dramatically increased your ability to successfully meet many threats. One way or another, this is peace of mind that you can't put a price tag on. 

What do I need for this class?

  • An open mind and excitement for starting your journey to self-defense competence.

  • Comfortable hiking boots or tennis shoes that can get a little dirty. (No heels or wedges on the boots please)

  • Short Sleeve T-Shirt with a crew neck. No V-necks as there is hot brass that can go down your shirt. 

  • Jacket and/or gloves in the winter. 

  • Cooling towel for your neck and sunscreen in the summer.

What do I get from this class:

  • One-on-one instruction with Louisa and Amber!

  • A ton of really valuable information on how to defend yourself and your loved ones. 

  • Proper information that will help you decide how you want to continue on your journey. After this class, you will be able to make an informed decision about how you want to train. ie. conceal carry and/or empty hand defense.

  • A certificate of completion. 

  • A personalized Modern Woman Warrior Academy Notebook to take notes and a pen. 

  • Special discounts on internet orders and special on-site merchandise.
