Self Defense in Las Vegas
in Las Vegas
There are several schools that teach self defense in Las Vegas. While self defense starts with situational awareness, we feel self defense should be simple, yet functional.

1 in 3 women in the US have reported being stalked, physically abused, or raped by an intimate partner in their lifetime. Our last Women’s Self Defense class is tonight at 6:30pm. Free to the public, so bring a gal pal and join us!👸🏼🦹🏻♀️ . . . #womensselfdefense #selfdefense #lasvegasselfdefense #selfdefenseforwomen #selfdefenselasvegas #lasvegasmoms
Simple in that techniques shouldn’t contain more than one or two steps. In a life or death situation, it will be unrealistic to pull off a 6 step defense against a certain attack, especially if you have not been training and drilling the defense into your body mechanics.
Self defense should be functional in that the scenarios taught against should be realistic in nature. You will not learn spinning, jumping, kicks.
Emphasis will be placed on more likely scenarios. How do you prevent a bigger, stronger, man from choking you when he’s in a top position? How do you defend against a big hay maker punch?
We do not have a regular class that is strictly for self defense. Here at The PIt 702, our self defense is ingrained into our Hawaiian Kempo (MMA) class. The only difference being striking surface and area.
For instance, instead of a four punch combination, a more effective strike would be a palm strike to the nose or an eye gouge. When it comes to self defense, there is no such thing as a fair fight. You should do everything in your power to survive.
If you are interested in self defense classes, you can try one of our Hawaiian Kempo classes. They are tailored for beginner and advanced students alike. We can also organize a self defense seminar, either here at The Pit 702, or your workplace or school. Our Self Defense for Women have always been popular.

Thanks to everyone who came out for our first "Make Mom Proud" weekend event! . . We hosted a self defense class, participated in Run For Life's mile/5k/10k (our very own Makayla was 2nd overall female in the 5k!), followed by Yoga and picnic in the park...all to help out a great local cause! . . Whether it be a Jiu jitsu tournament, obstacle course race, tough workouts in class, or other competitions...the most important thing is staying active, healthy, and surrounded by cool people👊🏽💥🤙🏽 . . #thepitohana #runforlifehenderson2017 #thepitmakemomproud #angelalonzoyoga #lasvegasselfdefense #lasvegashiking #lasvegasfitness #lasvegasoutdoors #lasvegaskickboxing . .
