"Assert Yourself" Workshop Series
IT’S TIME TO FIGHT THE PATRIARCHY - LITERALLY!
You’ve shared – and we’ve listened.
Our “Assert Yourself” workshop 2023 Series addresses questions inspired by the most personal fears you shared with us.
Each workshop focuses on one of the scenarios you asked us about, i.e. what can be done when grabbed from behind (on hair or clothing); controlled on the floor between legs or on top of torso; pushed against a wall and choked; attacked with punches; etc.…We focus on the most effective responses that can be done by a beginner, and also address the mental skills and attitudes required to deal with these kind of situations.
Workshop Dates 2023:
Jan 28th, Feb 25th, Mar 25th, Apr 22nd, May 27th, Jun 24th, Aug 26th, Sep 23rd, Oct 28th, 1-3pm

What Separates Us from the Fitness Franchises?
Personal Challenges = Personal Growth
Most of the boxing/kickboxing geared towards women is basically an aerobic workout. There’s nothing wrong with those type of classes, but many women want more. Our classes are going to challenge you physically and mentally as you learn technique and how to spar. You don’t need to get hit, but we train every student like they’re preparing for the ring. Read testimonials from our members about how empowering boxing is.
Grow Your Skills and Grow Your Rank
Similar to Martial Arts dojos, our boxers also have a color ranking system. As you build up your skill set, you will be invited to attend our color band tests. It’s a fun way to come together and celebrate the success of all the women at the school. Plus we go out to breakfast after!
Women-Led Classes for Women
It’s important to us to create a space for women to try something new in a supportive community without sacrificing a real boxing experience. Learn more about our awesome all-women group of US Boxing Certified coaches.
Beginners Always Welcome
Most of our students have never boxed before. We make sure beginners feel welcome and are integrated into classes from Day 1. Check out our beginners boxing workshop.
