Self Defense

Self DefenseSeven Star has provided self defense training in the Seattle community for 30 years.  We currently offer specialized workshops for community, private, and corporate groups.

We specialize in practical self-defense that relies on verbal, physical, and emotional strategies. In our workshops and classes students learn how to protect themselves from potentially dangerous situations in a safe and supportive environment.  We provide training in basic self defense skills, including awareness, de-escalation, boundary setting,  fighting techniques, and access to resources for survivors of violence or abuse.  We serve all populations including women, teens, girls, LBGTQ, deaf, men, seniors, and the homeless.

Our classes and workshops include the following self-defense tools:

  • Gaining a confident demeanor
  • Vulnerable targets on an attacker
  • Discovering your physical power
  • Where and when you are most vulnerable
  • Grab releases
  • Using your intuition
  • De-escalation skills
  • Information on weapons
