A Fighting Chance, Three Forks self-defense classes teach protection, safety for women” is the title of a recent article by Jodi Hausen in the Bozeman Daily Chronicle. Check out “A Fighting Chance” We enjoyed having Jodi and photographer Mike Greener join us for a recent self defense class. It was also great to reconnect with some of our former students who returned to brush up on their skills, taking advantage of our free return and practice option.

We are now scheduling our June, July, and August courses. For more information visit our Personal Safety and RAD Self-Defense pages. You can also call us at (406) 580-5190 or you can contact us through our website contact forms.

  1. Actually, 95% of our self-defense training is prevention, including risk awareness, reduction, recognition, and avoidance. Effective “self-defense” includes prevention strategies.
    That’s why our comprehensive rape aggression defense training starts with discussions on the dynamics of rape, sexual assault, stalking, and other crimes. We cover myths, alcohol and drugs, issues like social conditioning, options for “by-standers,” and, importantly, the elements of valid consent. We also discuss clear communication and verbal and physical boundary setting.
    We emphasize that for women, based on statistics, stranger danger is much smaller than that from non-strangers. Most women get assaulted by men they know in places they consider safe.
    Systemic change and inclusion of men in the process is essential. Prevention and avoidance strategies are imperative, but when they fail, and until systemic change has become a reality, women’s and men’s safety options can increase with some basic knowledge of physical self-defense.
