At Valley Self-Defense, we believe that the people who need self-defense are often those who may feel uncomfortable in a more traditional martial arts setting. Keeping that in mind, our queer instructor and co-owner Danae Hudson started a class where those who are part of the LGBTQ+ community can feel safe to both be themselves and learn the things that affect their lives.
We also understand that learning self-defense can be anxiety producing. This class takes place on its own and we welcome people to watch before joining. If you want to speak with the instructor beforehand, we're also happy to meet you at our site or at a coffee shop/neutral space to discuss who we are and what we do before you join.
