Self Defense

Self Defense

Our goal is to empower individuals to take responsibility for their safety and well-being

About the Training

Post-COVID (dates TBD), we will offer 2-hour introductory courses, and 2-day (24hr) intensive self-defense courses based on the Model Mugging format. For more information, visit the Model Mugging Self Defense website.

This training is hands-on, full contact (on the instructor) and geared specifically towards all aspects of self-defense against domestic and sexual assault by both known and unknown assailants. Setting boundaries, verbal confrontations, physical confrontations, and incident aftercare are just a few aspects covered.

Training Dates

We hope to have potential class dates posted for the 2021 year. Campus community members can schedule a training session by emailing our coordinator Deborah Douglas-Hammond at ddhammond@ucdavis.edu.
