Any mundane object that can be turned into an instant weapon during assaults is a great equalizer (and a life saver)--especially against a male assailant.

With the right mindset and training, almost anything (almost!) that can be found inside a woman's purse is a potential weapon:
  • Keys.
  • Lipstick tube/case.
  • Pen light.
  • Ballpoint pen.
  • Felt-tip pen/marker.
  • Cellphone.
  • Toothbrush. 
  • Perfume/cologne bottle. 
  • Hairbrush. 
  • Paper-and-binder personal organizer. 
  • Folding umbrella. 
  • Beverage tumbler. 
The question is, do you or would you know how to use any of these to your advantage when the need arises?

These weekend workshops will NOT transform you and your friends into Charlie's Angels, but--at the end of the session--each one should be able to:
  • LEARN simple, non-flowery but incapacitating strikes to strategic body parts (either with or without makeshift weapons).
  • DEVELOP acceptable speed in delivering such strikes (which you can further enhance by practicing them regularly, even on your own).
  • TRANSFORM a long umbrella, tennis/badminton racket, rolled newspaper, culinary spatula, and similar objects into an effective self-defense tool using Arnis/Kali/Eskrima techniques.
  • PERFORM helpful drills that you and/or your friends can practice to improve reflex and develop muscle memory.
  • BUILD awareness of and common sense against impending attacks.
  • DISCOVER instant "life-saving interventions" (which more organized schools will teach you only after many months or even years). 
Preferred participants are health professionals, media correspondents, call center employees, students, and the like who are based in the province and the city of Iloilo.

Appointments are open to at least a group of four participants.

For inquiries, please text or call +63946-871-2222 (Smart) or +63906-871-2222 (Globe).

Women should really be interested in self defense, because nobody wants yo be a part of the horrible statistics.

For me the key fob is more than a personal piece of self defense equipment, it is a great way for me to keep track of my keys!

I like such workshop. Women are considered so weak so most bad guys take advantage of their weakness... Good thing there are already self defense classes, training, workshop or whatever you call it that educate them with some skills in defending themselves against violence. If all women have knowledge on self defense then I believe that there will be no more crimes against women.
