Women are victims of violent crimes. including sexual assault and domestic violence, on a daily basis. The best way for women to protect themselves against violent attacks is to be prepared. STACT can equip women with the mental and physical skills needed if confronted by the dangers that exist in our world today. No longer are these dangers found in alleyways in the dark of night. They exist in public places, in broad daylight. Our mission is to empower women with self-confidence and the ability to protect themselves and their family. Our program teaches women to instinctively use their natural fight or flight reactions and avoid freezing. Our system includes self defense against common attacks including being tossed to the ground where women actually have an advantage fighting from the ground and we can teach you how. STACT instructors have volunteered teaching at a local battered women’s shelter. These women shared some of their experiences and found the training to be very valuable. Our training program of self-defense skills and techniques are done in a safe environment with instructors that foster positive support and heartfelt compassion.
