Self Defense Seminar for the Sorority Girls of UTA - September, 2011

Self Defense Program Information

Chamberlain Studios of Self Defense is committed to providing people with the skills they need to remain safe in today's modern world.  Since 1981, our instructors have offered complete training seminars starting with introductory 2-3 hour sessions all the way to specialized 4-6 week programs.  Our scheduled sessions at the Dallas Headquarters School are in January and just before school ends in May of each year.  In addition, we have other opportunities for training (some free of charge) that come up during the year in conjunction with private groups and these are frequently open to the public.  Further dates and information is available through our newsletter, for which you can sign up below.

What is Self-Defense?
Self-defense is a set of awareness, assertiveness, verbal confrontation skills, safety strategies, and physical techniques that enable someone to successfully prevent, escape, resist and survive violent assaults. A good self-defense course provides psychological awareness and verbal skills, not just physical training.

Why Self-Defense Training?
Self-Defense is more than knowing how to fight back against a physical attack. Participation in self-defense classes encourages you to think in terms of options and choices, develops your awareness and assertiveness skills and provides practice for physical self-defense techniques. A good self-defense class will expand the way you think about violence prevention, help you deal with your fears and enable you to feel more empowered in your life.

Womens Self Defense at SMU

Smu Wsd Self Defense Class 2 2012

We had a terrific turnout at the Womens Self Defense workshop at SMU on November 5th!  Approximately 150 girls from various SMU sororities took part in the event and roughly 15 instructors from CSSD showed up to help out!  In case you missed it, we appeared in the news last night on Channel 4, 5 & 8.  We'll work on getting links to those segments up on the website so you all can see them.  In the meantime, check out the group picture taken at the end of the event (roughly 1/2 the girls had already left to go to class).

Thank you again to all the volunteers who showed up to help make this event a success!
