Introduction to Self Defense

June 19, 2019


Pretty Deadly Self Defense is a self defense program designed for real-life situations based on simple, powerful techniques, strategic thinking and situational awareness in a warm, safe environment. No screaming, no competing, just kicking *ss and having fun. Designed by women. For everyone.

In this 2-hour workshop, we will introduce

• basic, effective self defense techniques (beginning with: how to make a fist)
• situational awareness (how to “read a room” … or bar, or street, or subway car)
• strategic thinking (how to get out of there!)

Pretty Deadly Self Defense was founded by Susie Kahlich in 2009. Based on her experience as a violent crime survivor and subsequent martial arts training, she has used this experience to sculpt Pretty Deadly into a self defense program that addresses the practical concerns of those most vulnerable to violence.
