About the Event


The StrongHER® Initiative is thrilled to present this uniquely-developed woman-led workshop in partnership with Krav Oz that goes beyond teaching just the physical components of self-defense and approaches self-protection from the mindset of the attacker. This research-based seminar includes insights from law enforcement officers and mental health professionals that will help you be better able to, not only physically defend yourself, but to better predict and prevent violent encounters through a better understanding of predatory behavior.

The two-part seminar begins with a guided research-driven conversation that gives insight into an attacker's mentality and develops our ability to recognize pre-attack indicators and predatory behaviors. Participants will leave with a simple model that they can use to evaluate behaviors and feel more confident in their ability to avoid and dissuade unwanted and predatory behavior.

Second, participants will learn the foundations of self-defense, from striking and blocking to defenses for common grabs and attacks. In addition to learning individual techniques, you will have the chance to employ them in fun, challenging application drills that will have you asking for more!

Participants have the unique opportunity to participate in this widely acclaimed program endorsed by several area universities, including Georgetown and American University, where owner adn Lead Instructor, Chantell regularly teaches the principles of self-defense and self-protection to students, faculty, and staff. Come prepared to learn and ready to have a great time training with other women in this safe and welcoming environment.

Be sure to wear comfortable athletic attire to get the most out of this seminar!
