Women’s Self-Defense Classes in Bozeman, Montana

Every 98 seconds an American is sexually assaulted. That statistic comes directly from RAINN – The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network. It’s extremely difficult to get accurate statistics on sexual assault and rapes as so many go unreported but RAINN estimates that 1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime. Below are some additional statics from RAINN:

Young women are especially at risk

  • 82% of all juvenile victims are female. 90% of adult rape victims are female.

  • Females ages 16-19 are 4 times more likely than the general population to be victims of rape, attempted rape, or sexual assault.

  • Women ages 18-24 who are college students are 3 times more likely than women in general to experience sexual violence. Females of the same age who are not enrolled in college are 4 times more likely.

  • Ages 12-34 are the highest risk years for rape and sexual assault.

  • Those age 65 and older are 92% less likely than 12-24 year olds to be a victim of rape or sexual assault, and 83% less likely than 25-49 year olds.

Gallatin Valley Martial Arts (GVMA) offers free Women’s Self-Defense classes in Bozeman, Montana. Seminars are taught by a qualified and experienced female instructor. The seminars are specially designed and include statistics, safety tips, and awareness training as well as an interactive streetwise self-defense workshop. Gallatin Valley Martial Art’s program was designed to teach women how to achieve empowerment through knowledge, awareness and confidence. Our goal is to share information to give you a better chance of never being attacked and in the event that you are that you have the best chance of surviving and escaping. The seminars we offer are not a substitute for continual training but they are a fun, educational and interactive introduction to self-protection and defense. No experience is necessary to participate in the seminars, but space is limited. During this workshop attendees learn:

  • Recognizing and avoiding potential threats

  • Situational awareness

  • Safety tips

  • Vital parts of the body that are vulnerable and easy to attack

  • Basic strikes and kicks

  • Defenses for the most common attacks on women

  • Plus a whole lot more!
