OUR PHILOSOPHY

"​MISOGYNY HAS NO PLACE IN THIS WORLD."

OUR THINKING.  We started this program of service because we know without any doubt that women are fully and equally deserving all of what life offers. The ignorance and stupidity of some people should not hold back the amazing potential of women. We whole-heartily think and feel women should no longer be in anything but equal positions as men. We are tired of seeing fear, harm and unfair restrictions on women. Our mothers, sisters, daughters and friends deserve gender balanced environments.  Enough is enough. We have seen too many women abused physically, emotionally and sexually often in very violent acts. The time to stop this insanity is now.

OUR INSTRUCTORS. Include men and women. Instructors have varied belts in variety of martial arts, street fighting and other fighting forms. All instructors have been fingerprinted per the State of California under the Live Scan Service.

FOUNDER AND LEAD INSTRUCTOR: ELLIOTT DERZAPH.   Elliott has been instructing Self-Defense for 11 years. His extensive background includes boxing, wrestling, Judo, Kung-Fu, Tae-Kwon-Do, Jujitsu and currently holds a brown belt in Aikido. Elliott's techniques are simple and easy to use. Become your own Defender!

"Life long training has taught us that size does not matter in self-defense though awareness, training and focus does.​" Elliott Derzaph
