Self Defense Training for Women and Girls

Hit with Power! | 34 Alamo Square Dr, Alamo, CA

Due to the pandemic we are not holding in-person classes. Please contact us for our online options. Thank you.

Our mission: 
To empower women and girls to use their voice and physical power without reservation when confronted by a person who intends to harm them.

Seminar Offerings

Hit with Power seminars are run by 2nd Degree Kung Fu Black Belt and World Champion Full Contact fighter, Michelle Brown. Kung Fu is a Chinese system of Martial Arts that helps potential victims understand how to use the attackers force back against them. This is critical component of self defense for women and girls,  as attackers are often much bigger and stronger than those they choose to attack. Scott, our live male “dummy” assists with the seminar in order to give the ladies a “real world” idea of what it will take to fend off a large male attacker.

“I highly recommend Michelle’s private self-defense classes. All three of my girls enjoyed Michelle’s approach and really listened to what she has to say. She provides a nice balance between talking to the girls and giving them sound, practical advice as well as physical training and practice. I’ve had her come twice so far and will definitely ask her back for several more sessions. Hopefully our girls won’t ever need to put into practice what they’ve learnt but I’d rather they are prepared just in case!” – Emma B., Lafayette, CA
