SAFETY FOR ALL WOMEN: Choose Your Price AND Your Prize!
Our goal is to make self defense training welcoming
and accessible to every woman in Asheville.

Receive:  We’re on a mission and local businesses have teamed up with us in something called the Kunoichi Game, to encourage all women  to take these empowering classes.  For every hour of training (at our studio and other schools too!), you earn 10 Kunoichi points towards awesome prizes like a tree top tour with Navitat or a haircut and style at L’eau de Vie Salon!  It is not always easy to take this time for yourself, so please be sure to join us AND receive and indulge in these gifts.
