Self Defense Workshops
Kentucky Grapplers’ Self Defense Workshops are a great way to learn basic self defense without committing to learning a specific martial art. We are aware that many people are interested in learning about protecting themselves without committing to becoming a martial artist. We offer several options to learn basic skills and techniques.
Self Defense and Fitness
Every weekday from 1:00 to 2:00pm we turn the timer on and hit things. Great for conditioning and stress relief. Basic kicking, boxing, knees and elbows are covered and corrected during training. Active rounds focus on repetition of techniques and active rests focus on flexibility and ROM.
We have a daily drop-in rate of $10 or $75 a month for unlimited classes.
Women’s Self Defense Workshop
The Women’s Self Defense Workshop is a two hour class. The first hour focuses on situational awareness, conflict, avoidance and mentally and emotionally preparing to deal with violent conflict. The second hour is physical techniques that are easy to learn and execute. This is a monthly class. Availability is on our Upcoming Events page.

Beginning in 2020 we will begin offering an Advanced Women’s Self Defense Workshop. This Workshop will pick up where the first one left off. It is a more physical class and jumps straight into physical training review and scenario based training. The class is an hour long and more physically demanding.
