About This Activity

The Excel Women's Self Defense Seminar is a hands-on program that is designed to give you the ability to respond effectively in a realistic attack situation. Professional instructors will educate you on personal protection, environmental awareness, home security and practical self defense techniques. It is a 3-hour seminar from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. 
Our training is based on reality. The participants can actively participate in simulated attack scenarios in a safe and controlled environment. EXCEL instructors wear full protective gear to provide a realistic element that other self defense courses cannot. This method of instruction provides a safe way for women to see just how effective they can be when using proper technique as well as to understand what can happen when mistakes are made in a life-threatening situation. You will learn how to keep you and your family safe inside and outside your home and receive a foundation of knowledge to call upon when you have no other choice but to fight back to survive. 
Class is designed for females 13 years and older.
