Every woman should know how to defend herself

The world is getting CRAZIER and more violent.  Statistically, 1 out of 5 women have been, or will be assaulted in their lifetime.

On Friday, April 29th, at 6:15pm,  Innovative Martial Arts Academy Instructors, Charles and Katherine Falk, want to help you avoid danger AND give you tools to fight back should DANGER come to you. 

Have you ever wondered what you would do if someone pulled a gun on you?

This Women’s Self Defense Workshop is going to cover what to do and what not to do if this situation ever arises. We will discuss options, strategies and statistics to give you a better chance of escaping unharmed. Disarming your attacker is a last resort but we will teach you basic disarms that you will have an opportunity to practice in class. This is the fun part! This will be hands-on training, working through different scenarios with plenty of time for Q & A. Don’t worry, we use rubber training guns that have no moving parts, make no sound, and cannot shoot.

After the workshop we hope that you will stay for some wine or water and light hors d’oeuvres. Space is limited for this one so sign up now for a kick ass ladies night out!

The cost is ONLY $30 and registration is limited to 20 participants. 

Following the classroom portion, we will have a question/answer-social time with light HORS D’OEUVRES and WINE!  Talk about a perfect ending to a really good time!

Meet Your Expert Instructors

We’ll cover Red Flags, Environmental Safety Do’s and Don’ts, Victim Avoidance, Strategies of a Predator, and Tools of Self-Preservation.  These tools consist of effective techniques you can use right out of the gate.  This is NOT a martial arts class, so you don’t have to be in great physical shape, extremely flexible, and be able to kick over your head.  You can learn these techniques in this ONE class and become FORMIDABLE to an attacker.

Here is a list of reasons to take this class:

  1. Defend yourself and your loved ones
  2. It’s a really FUN class.  Sign up with your significant other.
  3. It’s a GREAT way to get to know other people and make friends
  4. There is wine and cheese after the class!
  5. You can get good advice from professional self-defense instructors

Our Reviews

Great school with wonderful teachers. My daughter has a great time learning and everyone is friendly. There is even an adult class that allowed me to try to see if I liked it and everyone was very patient with me. I am thankful to have my daughter be a part of the Innovative Martial Arts Academy in Wake Forest and know she is benefiting from it in more than one way. It amazes me how fast she is learning and how hard she is trying. They have her trying to develop at her fullest with her mind, body, and spirit. I would recommend this school to anyone interested in martial arts.

This place is great! Charles and his team have fantastic programs for kids. When we started our 3.5 year old son, I didn’t know what to expect. He quickly adapted to the classes and now loves going. Our 2 year old son loves watching and will start as well as soon as he turns 3. Innovative Martial arts also hosted their birthday parties. The kids had a blast doing different activities throughout the birthday party. Can’t say enough good things about this place, and what they teach!

Wonderful place for not only skill development but also personal development. Owner and instructors genuinely get to know students and families and care about them. The lessons learned will provide character growth as well as martial art skills. The owner is also a long time student of many different martial arts, he didn't just buy a franchise, and tries very hard to live what he teaches the students. Proud to have been in this dojo family for 6+ years and proud of the friendships we have made there!
