Don't be a victim. Ever. Unfortunately, there may be a time when you need to 'speak the language of violence.'

Your life may depend on your preparation - these seminars will equip you in this preparation. It is fun, a great workout, but serious self defense training.

Each B.A.D. Women's seminar stands alone, but together build a great foundation. Each event stands alone, but certain principles and techniques are most always covered:

  • A mindset of aggression when facing violence

  • Situational awareness at all times, particularly in transitional or unknown/new areas

  • Creating a physical and verbal 'fence' to maintain space, practicing this through role play

  • Striking: how to effectively create damage to bad people!

However, each training will also focus on a PARTICULAR common situation in attacks, such as being held on the ground or being grabbed from behind.  You CAN learn how NOT to be a victim!  You will have an opportunity (if you choose) to defend against a realistic 'attack' in the given scenario in a controlled, safe, and encouraging environment with trained instructors to guide and walk you through.

In every seminar we make it clear that each participant is there to have a great experience at whatever pace and 'intensity' they desire. We understand that this subject and certainly this activity could create unwanted anxiety. Our sensitivity to this has been met with appreciation and gratitude.

Carolina Self Defense & Krav Maga is passionate about equipping you!

Wear comfortable work­out clothes and bring a water container. Striking gloves may certainly be used, but are not required. Ages 13 and up. 

We look forward to seeing you there!

I attended the Becoming a Dangerous Woman class this past weekend and it was AMAZING!!! The instructors were so helpful and encouraging. I strongly recommend this class to women of all ages. The class reminded me to stand up for myself again, listen to my intuition and stop being too nice. Our space is our space and we shouldn’t be afraid to protect it out of fear of hurting someone’s feelings. Yes I learned some great techniques but for me it was about making me aware again and building confidence. Can’t wait to try another class. Very welcoming atmosphere and the staff made you feel apart of the group!!!
I LOVED the class and will definitely be back with my sister and friends. We had a lot of practice time and were able to practice with other students as well as the instructors. The length of the class was long enough to teach valuable skills, but not draining or boring. We also got to hear from someone who survived an attack and learned that we don’t have to settle for being afraid, and that we can take charge of situations when our gut gives us a bad vibe.
Loved everything about this class. Instructors were very knowledgeable & incredibly helpful. I would recommend this class to anyone. These are vital skills, necessary, sadly, in this day and age. I felt very empowered when the class ended.
This course was fantastic! It is the 2nd self-defense course I’ve taken and this was FAR more helpful than the course I took in college. I liked practicing in pairs - a little uncomfortable but really necessary and effective. I also thought the focus on becoming aggressive was really important and helpful. Thanks!
I attended the women’s self defense class with a friend. It was amazing! There were several instructors there to help. They were all engaged and their diverse personalities made it even better. They incorporated various ways to teach: video, demonstrations, and hands on. I also liked that if you were comfortable you could practice what you learned on the instructors. They have a lot of feedback and genuinely seem to care. I can’t wait to take another class with them. I would highly recommend this class! I loved how diverse the ages of the participants were as well, great to see some dads dropping of their daughters for this! The instructors went over realistic scenarios and answered any questions we all had. This is a great program.
I’ve never taken any type of self-defense class and came in very nervous and self-conscious. Instructors were great at making everyone feel at ease. I feel like I learned a lot. I’m a runner and often worry about my safety when I’m out running alone. I feel a lot better equipped to deal with potential threats now. Thanks so much for this class!!
I attended the Becoming a Dangerous Woman class today. I was looking for a way to take back control of my life and this class was AMAZING!!! Being overweight and out of shape I wasn’t sure if I could do this but I was so wrong. Every one worked at their own pace. The instructors were so helpful and encouraging. We rotated techniques moving from upper body to lower body. I know that I’m going to be sore tomorrow from this awesome workout and I love it.
A great intro. Informative. Gave me confidence that I could escape an attacker. Made me also want to take more classes so I can learn more skills and feel even more proficient. AND it was a great workout.
I went for the “Becoming a Dangerous Woman” workshop, which was an introduction into basic self defense techniques. I had a blast and also learned a lot of useful skills. I am excited to move forward and really begin my Krav Maga training from here! Highly recommend this studio to anyone, staff are friendly, patient and fun, and the skills are certainly worth having.
Great introduction to self-defense. Loved the practice of turning the “on” switch to beast mode. Practicing aggressive sounds and expressions was very helpful. The hammer punches/kicks into the pads were great - I felt like it was an excellent basic move that we will take away. Also, I had my 13 year old daughter with me and I think this was an appropriate class for her.
I liked that it was a lot of hands-on practice. I think I would need to come more to make it feel more automatic and not freeze in a self defense situation, but this seminar gave me a lot of useful moves that I can work on. The staff made a very intimidating topic/situation much more comfortable as they were all very encouraging and all obviously like teaching this. I found this class to be empowering and exactly what I was hoping for.
The class exceeded my expectations! I didn’t expect to have so much fun learning about this serious skill. The entire class was professional and safe. I will let me friends know to take this workshop.:)
I’ve never been in a fight or taken any self-defense courses, and this was absolutely amazing. The staff is wonderful and the curriculum is truly empowering. I’m so thankful that I chose to come to the “B.A.D. Woman” seminar and will definitely be back for Krav!
I learned that I can trust myself in a dangerous situation. The instruction was basic and understandable - not difficult to remember. This course may save my life someday!
I loved this self defense class! It had the perfect combination of hands-on training, video time and skill training. I feel like I have several “go to” moved that feel natural. I would definitely take this class again to sharpen up my skills.
