Women's Classes



Women: There are times when females have specific fears and problems which need specific solutions. Our classes can show any female how to protect herself against bigger and stonger attackers, while gaining the self-confidence she needs. At the same time, our self-defense classes are built to be the best workout you've ever experienced.

Men: Men don't need the traditional martial arts that focus on kids, and why should they train with sport arts which won't protect them out on the street? Our self-defense classes are the challenge you need in to succeed in your family, at your job, and in life. Learn the most cutting edge self-defense system ever created!

In addition, we also have specialty classes which focus on specific ranges and areas of defense, such as Boxing, Kick Boxing, Ground Fighting, Weapons, and others.

Students with a lot of previous experience may start in a higher level, please consult an instructor for details.

Youth Classes: Our youth classes go way beyond most regular martial arts programs by teaching not only cutting edge martial arts, but important life skills (listening, following through) and character building attributes (showing respect, increasing self-confidence). Whether you are a parent looking to give your child an edge in life, or help them in a difficult time of development.

Private Group Morning Classes: For those who work in the evening, odd hours, or desire a much more intense pace, private group morning classes may be for you. Class size is usually a fraction of the regular evening classes, however, the fees are much higher given the intense personal attention.

Seminars: EDS hosts a number of seminars throughout the year covering a wide variety of topics. Please check our web site's calendar for upcoming events.

Employee Wellness Programs: EDS can add a unique option to wellness programs by helping employees gain self-defense skills and a new way to relieve stress. Please call for more information.
