Women's Self Defense

Woman looks at knife while man explains how to defend knife attacks.

Since 1997, thousands of women around the world have attended the Stay Away seminars created by the IKMF.

The Women's Stay Away program teaches women how to defend themselves against the most common attacks they might face - whether that be on their feet or on the ground. Our Intro to Women's Self Defense runs once a month and focuses on awareness-building, avoidance, hitting, kicking, and using your voice to defend yourself. 

Woman kicks man who has grabbed and lifted her.

Our ground seminar focuses on women being able to defend themselves against attacks on the ground and runs once a quarter.
