Become an instructor in our world renowned Women's Self Defense system. Stay up to date with the latest certification classes as we travel around the country making new instructors.
Thousands of women have benefited from the unique teaching method used by the Women's Self-Defense Institute. Our guiding philosophy is set in the very real differences in the self-defense needs for women vs. men. The nature of the conflict is, on so many levels, hugely different. For us, this means using a woman's strongest weapons against a man's weakest points. The self-defense modules are designed to interlock in developing techniques and skills which have been proven to work for the non-martial artist female against full power attacks from men. We teach awareness, avoidance, space management, and a system of resisting assaults using simple to learn gross-body movements that take advantage of your natural instincts which are easier to remember under stress.
In addition to being a high level martial artist in arts such as Kyu Ku Shin Karate and Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Kardian is also a long time law enforce veteran and media personality.
Working from Phoenix, AZ Brad began Defend University with Steve in the early 1990s.
