Smart Girl Self Defense is designed for girls and women
from ages 14 and beyond (as old as you feel)! We offer one and/or two courses which focuses on strengthening the psychological & physical aspects
of a woman’s ability to defend herself. Prizes and raffles at every class! Once you attend a Smart Girl class, you can come back for a refresher for free
Level 1 focuses on listening to the importance on listening to one’s own gut instinct (the value of intuition), learning why this is so important, developing stand up defense skills, meeting and asking questions of a local female detective and then, taking a final test of your skills!
Level 2 focuses on the the traits of survivors and what we can learn from them. Have you heard of “fight, flight and freeze?” You can learn what to do if you freeze. You will also learn to defend yourself on the ground and how to escape/avoid a knife attack.
We offer Smart Girl every quarter at Wink’s Gym and have special rates for birthday parties and office/corporate safety trainings!
Date to be announced.
Partial payment required to reserve your spot.

Women who learn self-defense gain a 55%-86% chance of avoiding rape (Kleck & Sayles, 1990).
Comfortable! Fun! Smart! Defense!
“Smart Girl Self Defense is a well-designed course that is changing the women that take it. It arms them psychologically and physically, greatly increasing the odds that they will avoid or escape a dangerous situation. It’s exactly the type of course I would encourage my mother, wife, and loved ones take. If you live in the Albuquerque area and you’re 14 or older, I suggest you give it a try.”
