Streetwize Self Defense classes are held in a safe and nurturing environment where we provide you with the tools you need to protect yourself in dangerous situations, no matter your size or athletic ability.

Each class will help develop your physical, mental and emotional strength as you partake in real-life scenarios with our trained martial arts students. We don’t believe in over rehearsed encounters with men in padding, we believe in you and your ability to defend yourself.

Sensei Melanie Murphy was recently interviewed on the Nicole Deboom Podcast “Run This World”. She discusses how she came to the Martial Arts, what makes this training different, how to set boundaries, speak from your heart, listen to your soul and trust your body!
