Pretty Deadly Self Defense is a self-empowerment program through self-defense. Designed for women by women, we've used our real-life experiences to develop a program that’s tailored for the way women actually learn, the things we actually face, and that’s actually fun. We help you find tools within yourself to handle anxiety, stress, and fear by building confidence and self-trust, showing you how to adapt to anything, and be ready for everything!
Pretty Deadly Self Defense was developed by Susie Kahlich, a 20-year martial arts practitioner and violent crime survivor. Susie’s life experience has helped structure the program to be intersectional, inclusive, and non-judgmental. And her experience as a storyteller helps make the course fun.
