Women’s Self-Defense Trainings

November 30, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - December 2, 2017 @ 3:30 pm


In today’s politically charged environment, Muslims have increasingly become the target of hate crimes. Our women’s self-defense trainings provides an opportunity for women to learn critical skills to protect themselves as well as identify and respond to threatening situations.  Additionally, participants will be provided with FREE pepper spray and taught how to safely and appropriately use it.

Trainings are conducted in an Islamically appropriate manner. Pepper sprays will be provided, but availability is limited so please register in advance.
