Women's Self Defense

***Self-defense classes have been suspended until further notice. Thank you for understanding.*** 

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

Our instructors are UCF police officers who have been trained by the National Self –Defense Institute (http://www.nsdi.org). 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 women.

There is no cost for the class. S.A.F.E self-defense classes are created specifically for women, and S.A.F.E. training certifies our officers to only offer this course for female students. The minimum age is 14 and you do not need to be a UCF student to attend unless otherwise indicated.

Registration is required and opens 30 days prior to the class. To sign up, please fill out the form below. Please note, there is a limited amount of space available.

If you have a group of 12 or more and would like to host a private self-defense class for your group, please email policecr@ucf.edu . We are happy to accommodate large groups and can come to you or host at the UCF Police Department.
