Please join us at our studio as we hold another "Intro to Women's Self-Defense Workshop" to benefit our local non-profit "Alexandria House" (  Cost is $25/pp. All proceeds from this event will go towards helping women and children find safe and permanent shelter. Last time we raised $450 and we hope to do more!

 Participants will learn and practice some simple but effective standing, striking, and ground techniques. The event is open to ages 8+. We recommend comfortable clothing and no jewelry.  

Come support this community effort to help our neighbors in need!    Space is limited to 20 participants.  Please reserve your spot by prepaying below.


Founded in 1996, Alexandria House is a transitional residence and house of hospitality providing safe and supportive housing for women and children in the process of moving from emergency shelter to economic stability and permanent housing. Located in the densely populated and ethnically diverse Mid-Wilshire area of Los Angeles, they also serve the broader neighborhood community by providing educational and enrichment opportunities for neighbors as well as residents.

The goal of Alexandria House is to be a community-oriented transitional house and neighborhood center. They are intentionally multicultural and anti-racist, and the needs of women who are economically poor are at the center of their commitment.

More than 92% of the women who have moved through the Alexandria House program have succeeded in securing financial stability and permanent housing.
