Personal/Self Defense Training at WOFT

Empower Yourself with Practical Self-Defense Skills

When you think of self-defense, images of martial arts, the Karate Kid, or high-flying action scenes might come to mind. At WOFT, we take a different approach. Our Personal/Self Defense course is designed for everyday people facing everyday situations, emphasizing practical strategies for real-life encounters.


Course Overview

Our unique method focuses on scenario safety and instruction, equipping you with the mindset and techniques to handle non-lethal physical attacks. Unlike traditional martial arts or street fighting, which often emphasize combat and victory, our approach prioritizes escape and evasion. We teach you how to get out of situations you never wanted to be in, fostering a mindset of safety and survival.

Special Focus on Women

This course is particularly beneficial for women, who statistically face higher risks of physical violent attacks. Given the dynamics of often facing physically stronger attackers, our training emphasizes maneuvering, evasion, and escape as the best, and sometimes only, options.

Mindset and Method

The transformative goal of our Personal Defense course is to instill a mindset and method for dealing with non-lethal threats. We prepare you with the knowledge of what to do and how to do it, ensuring you can act decisively in critical moments.
