Women Self Defense


To provide every woman and child an opportunity to learn confidence, awareness, and self defense.

"Learn today, Remember tomorrow"

“I brought in Claudia and her team at Defense Project 88 to do a class for our Midland Softball team.  Their ability to teach and connect with our girls was amazing.  Their knowledge and common sense approach was high level.  Claudia and her team have a true passion to get the right message out, and the ability to do it in a way that was both enjoyable and educational.  I highly recommend Claudia and her entire team at Defense Project 88.”
~Coach Mike, Midland University

Omaha's unique self defense program for women!

Created by a woman for women, these self defense classes are designed to instruct practical self defense to women of all ages and skill level. We will dispel common self defense myths as well as teach basic tips and techniques on how to avoid becoming a victim.

Rather than teaching a person to thwart an attack by punching and kicking, we demonstrate small joint manipulations and how to pinch sensitive parts of the body for a quick release and escape.

These self defense classes are a practical and easy approach to safety and empowerment. Rooted in Aikido philosophy and principles, all techniques are simple, sound, easily remembered and very effective. Instruction caters to all ages, sizes and abilities.

Instruction will include but not limited to Escapes from Grabs ( Front, Behind & Hair) Choke Holds, and Sexual Assault / Rape Escape Techniques.

Each participant will receive a certificate that entitles 3 free continuing Self Defense Classes to further ensure comprehension and practice!
