Women's Self-Defense Class Confirmed

It's confirmed: I'll be teaching a women's self-defense class starting in just a few weeks, at a more convenient time that has opened up at Studio 12.

Dates: Six Saturdays from September 21, 2013 through October 26, 2013
Time:  1:15 to 3:15 p.m. (six two-hour classes)
                 2525 8th St.
                 Berkeley, CA
Cost: $95 (no one turned away for lack of funds)

Contact: or 510-842-6243 (Google Voice for the dojo)

The class covers alertness, awareness, and avoidance; escapes from common attacks; basic striking and kicking; how to secure your home, workplace, and other skills. 

The physical techniques I teach are uncomplicated and easy to learn; they are also adaptable to a wide variety of levels of physical ability. 

To sign up, let me know you're planning to attend, by email or phone.

Please feel free to share this information with any women you know who might be interested in this class.

Lisa, I'm very seriously considering this. However, I am really out of shape. Would it still be doable?

Lisa Hirsch said...

Absolutely, Vajra. It'll work fine for you; doesn't require significant fitness. It's a "work with what you have" kind of a class.

I really wish I could send my daughter, as what you are teaching is absolutely just the ticket for a girl heading to college next year!

Vajra said...

I'm definitely doing this!

Lisa Hirsch said...


Sibyl, I'm sorry you can't send her. :(

Vajra said...

Just finished the first class. Fantastic! Thank you, Lisa.
