Empowerment Self-Defense

The unique self-defense programming of Arundel Aikikai places participants or students in charge of their experience.  The goal of our self-defense programming is the empowerment of participants to recognize what challenges or threats they may face and empower each person to become their own best defender.

Our self-defense curriculum follows students' realities: the content and curriculum matches the needs and situations of the students taking the class. The challenges of violence, abuse, fear, and hatred are immensely complex; no single person or instructor has "THE" answer.  You Defense is the belief that students, not instructors, are experts in their own lives, and instructors are guides journeying with the student. You Defense empowers you to call-out what threatens you, and challenges you to discover your answers.

Group sessions, educational seminars, and private or semi-private training sessions are available. To begin a conversation about bringing You Defense to your community, contact us.
