About A Fighting Chance

Chances are one in four women will be attacked during her lifetime.

Chances are she will know her attacker 80% of the time.

Chances are women who resist effectively are twice as likely to escape injury as others.

Are you willing to take a chance? 

Give yourself

A Fighting Chance!

Although no one, not even men, are exempt from a violent or sexual assault,  A Noblesville Indianapolis Fishers zionsville tiptonFighting Chance is for women only.  Women have a particular disadvantage being typically lesser in size, weight, reach, and strength than most men, so A Fighting Chance teaches women techniques that emphasize a woman’s strongest “weapons,” against an offender’s weakest targets. The key; however, is to fight effectively before becoming exhausted. Studies have shown that 50% of attackers fled from a woman who even showed a willingness to resist.

This is not your typical safety course.  We understand that learning self defense is a very personal and emotional experience.  With the prevalence of domestic violence and sexual assault, many women seek out safety programs after being victimized, experiencing a “close call,” or knowing someone who has been victimized. The instructor is prepared to assist those who need extra emotional support during the class. Woman are able to gain a sense of strength and confidence that comes with learning to protect themselves.

Our rape prevention and self-defense program women's self defense classesbest suits women ages 12 and up due to modest sexual content regarding the most common rape scenarios, escape techniques, and emotional effects that may be experienced; however, the program may be modified to suit a group of younger students.  The classes are taught by a woman, but our male “Bad Guy” wears ap protective padded suit to allow participants to practice and experience kicking and striking using full-force against a stronger, larger attacker.

The program addresses ways to avoid an attack; escape if  you can’t avoid it; and survive if you can’t escape. Participants will learn what steps to take in the event of a completed attack, as well  as,  understand factors that influence trauma and recovery.

A Fighting Chance is thankful to Professor Greg Eldred of Indianapolis Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy for allowing us to hold our classes at his facility,  located at 1764 E. 116th Street, Carmel, Indiana.  This location makes A Fighting Chance convenient to Fishers, Noblesville, Indianapolis, Carmel, Westfield, and other surrounding communities. Participants may join an open class session listed on the calendar, or organize a private group self-defense class.

Key words: self-defense, women’s self-defense classes, a fighting chance
