Now more than ever before, women are becoming victims of assault, rape, kidnapping and domestic abuse.

According to the National Coloration Against Domestic Violence,

“Every 9 seconds in the US, a woman is assaulted or beaten, and 1 in 3 women have been victims of [some form of] physical violence within their lifetime.”

If an aggressor attacked you, would you be able to fight them off and get away?

The answer is yes!

Our flesh constantly tells us that we are incapable of being strong, being courageous, enduring hardships, and unable to overcome, but God’s Word tells us differently.

In Mark 9:23, we’re encouraged, “With God, all things are possible.”

We here at Calvary Chapel South Bay take your safety very seriously and are proud to offer a brand new Women’s Self Defense class free of charge!

This class focuses on encouraging and edifying you as a woman in the body of Christ. You will grow physically, mentally, and spiritually stronger by training your body, mind, and spirit to defend yourself against the enemy’s schemes and evil tactics.

Just as you defend yourself spiritually with the Word of God, you will learn how to defend yourself physically by exercising your body and by becoming familiar with certain techniques and moves.

These classes will teach you effective self-defense techniques and real, practical skills to help fend off an aggressor.

It will also help you increase muscle tone, strength, and flexibility as you learn different strategies and skills.

Not only will you be able to defend yourself from an aggressor, you’ll also improve your physical health by staying active and getting in shape too!

The Self-Defense Ministry meets for 1 hour every Friday evening in the Overflow Room.

Classes are at 7:00 p.m.

You will gain more confidence in defending yourself, get the training you need to fight off your assailant and learn how to be victorious in Christ Jesus!

So come out and join us for a time of fellowship, a fun workout to praise music, and to acquire a basic knowledge of self-defense.

Ages 18 years and up are welcomed. Children’s Ministry will not be available.
