Self-Defense Awareness & Familiarization Exchange Program (S.A.F.E)

The National Self-Defense Institute’s Self-Defense Awareness & Familiarization Exchange (S.A.F.E.) program introduces women to self-defense and to information intended to reduce the risk of exposure to violence. The introductory two-hour crime-victim prevention program aims to educate and train women to prevent sexually violent crimes and to help them avoid, escape, and survive assaults if they do occur. The course is taught by certified instructors on campus.

Why S.A.F.E.?

Somewhere in America, a woman is sexually assaulted every 2 minutes, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

SAFE provides women with solid public safety-awareness information to incorporate into their everyday lives.

"If you were targeted for a violent attack, you are only guaranteed there will be one person there to defend you and that person is... you." You are your best defense.
