We're Hiring!

We work with an exclusive team of staff and instructors who believe that self-defense is about much more than physical strikes, and are committed to helping others access their own power. Our graduates describe the experience as ”life changing,” “empowering,” and as an important part of their trauma healing. If you're looking for meaningful involvement in violence prevention in the Bay Area, check out our current openings:
