The Women's Defense Network Mission
We are a global community service network of instructors with the ultimate mission of empowering women through education and training for self-defense, rape prevention, and personal protection.
The Women's Defense Network Objective
To create an intentionally-formed community supporting women to become more skilled at staying safe in an increasingly unsafe world.
The Women's Defense Network Guiding Principles
This site should be your sanctuary and home base among people of similar motivations, experience and tolerance. This is where visitors can gain knowledge and support and where instructors can better themselves and share new ideas and challenges.
This is your base where you:
Connect with students and instructors creating a training atmosphere of freedom and safety.
Use the full natural ability that you already possess.
Replace the unknown with knowledge.
Replace fear with intent.
Produce confidence and power.
We strive to increase our abilities to communicate and teach effectively with techniques that actually work. We want women's self-defense knowledge to be available, affordable, accessible, and awesome.
The Women’s Defense Network gets back to the old-school perspective you knew under the original Defend University and Women's Self-Defense Institute banner along with the sister site Tactical Studies Group.
