Self defense class for women


I’d like to take a self defense class (or classes) to learn the basics of how to defend myself. Anyone have any recommendations? Thanks!

Yes! I can’t say enough good things about IMPACT Self Defense Classes! I took the basic and advanced class several years ago after a good friend was attacked.

I recommend brazilian jiu-jitsu. Try BETA academy at 15th & Columbia Rd NW.

Hi MMK! Please check out Defend Yourself (, this is exactly what we do. We often teach in or near Petworth. Feel free to contact me directly via phone or email (both available on the web site), I’d be happy to talk and answer any questions about what you’re looking for. Best, Lauren 

Defend Yourself is great — practical, real-life information, great classes, awesome instructors.
