Women's Self Defense

Mighty Knights - Personal Defense Program

Our instructors are UCF police officers who are experienced and knowledgeable on topics of personal safety and threat awareness. This course primarily focuses on topics of mindset, preparation and safety awareness, but also utilizes defensive tactics instructors, certified by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to demonstrate basic physical defense techniques. Our courses are designed to provide attendees with information, tactics and options which we believe may be useful for various types of crimes perpetrated against victims.

There is no cost for the class. As an inclusive, public institution of higher education, UCF offers the Mighty Knights classes to all students, staff, and faculty within the UCF community. A valid UCF affiliated e-mail account must be used when registering for this course.

Registration is required to attend this course. To sign up, please fill out the form below. Please note, with in-person sessions there is a limited amount of space available. Virtual courses are taught through Microsoft Teams and have a larger attendance cap. You will receive an e-mail with class information prior to the course date.
