Empowerment Training

Self Defense Workshops

  • You walk alone at night, or go running by yourself with an ever watchful eye and ear. 
  • You limit yourself, where you go, what you do, how you look and what activities you participate in
  • You find your stomach tightening when you think about your maturing daughter’s safety

Or maybe you feel like a superhero already, but want to throw your shoulders back to stand even taller, take up the space you deserve, speak out more often, or set boundaries that are more unwavering than ever before. 

For all these reasons and more, if you are ready to shake it up, we’ve got a solution, and we’re glad you found your way here!

Ladies’ Fight Night is especially for you if you are ready to feel comfortable walking down the street, running or traveling alone. Be confident as you speak your mind at work, school and home. Have an unshakable “NO” anytime and anyplace with the knowledge that you can back it up with the power to hit and hit hard. 

The classes we offer are intensives for people like you who are looking to get results right now!

Don’t worry, we can modify anything we do to fit your unique needs. If you have any health-related issues, just let us know when you fill out the waiver and we’ll work with you!

Know what to do if you are attacked from behind, choked from the front, or thrown to the ground, which adds to your fierceness quotient!

Private & Custom Trainings

Don’t see a class that fits into your schedule? No problem! Whether you want a private lesson for yourself, or a class designed just for you and your best friends, a preschool class, your rugby or soccer team, a girl or boy scout troop, teen girls or boys, a mom’s club, or members of your family, it’s easy!

Kudos to Naga for a well done self-defense class. My daughter soaked it all up, and we practiced when we got home. As a former US Marine, I’m knowledgable and well practiced in the ways of self-defense. Unfortunately, I’ve found some such classes lacking in certain areas. From what my daughter showed me, NAGA is doing it right.

Silvia is compassionate, a good communicator, inspiring, and attentive. She’s real and genuine and is all about helping people move forward. She is so present.

I’m so glad I came to this class! It was informative and I got to actually practice some moves. You can only learn so much from books. Thank you so much! I will be recommending you to my peeps☺

A few years ago my daughter took the Power Up! (used to be No! Go! Yell! Tell!) class with her girl scout troop at Naga and when I searched for a class for myself, Ladies’ Fight Night came up. It made sense to check it out. I’ve wanted to feel more empowered and learn self defense skills for a while. I liked how dynamic, and effective the class looked, and when I spoke to Silvia over the phone, she made me feel very comfortable and confident, and I knew I could do it. I’m extremely glad I came!!! I left feeling really strong & empowered, and with a heightened awareness of all the ways I can help keep myself safe. I loved the way Silvia taught the class using stories, facts, and physical movements.

At first, I was reluctant to register for personal reasons. I spoke with Silvia and she reassured me that my personal reasons wouldn’t be an issue and explained why.

My friend said this would be so much fun, and I thought it was about time I took a self-defense class. She was right and so was I!

This class is powerful, useful and interesting and I can’t wait for the next one!

After taking this class I feel safer and more powerful! Thank you!
