The "Iron Ladies Self Defense Program" was developed by Sifu Karl Adhihetty in the early 1980's as a response to a number of attacks on women riding the Toronto Transit System.

Recognizing that Women require a different approach than their Male counterparts, Sifu Adhihetty put together a series of self defense techniques that every women would be able to apply effectively with a minimal amount of training and strength.

While training in a full martial arts curriculum is still highly recommended, this course will provide all women with the Basic skills they require for effective Self Defense.

Many of the techniques taught in this program are not covered in the unisex martial arts programs at most gyms. This course is intended to fill a gap in overall self defense training for women.

This program is designed as a 4 Week Seminar series. It is repeated every 2 months. We recommend that after the inital program is completed, students return for refresher courses once or twice per year to ensure that the techniques and mindset that were acquired in the initial program are reinforced. Refresher courses are offered at a 25% Discount.

Introduction, 5 principles of Self Defense, How not to be targeted, How to use your body as a weapon for Self Defense, What are the target areas on an attacker, Basic striking techniques and target striking.
