Women’s Self Defense

Author: Shannon Miller

Women's self defence; a young lady defends her self in a practice class.

I recently took a Self Defense course with a great group of women. I will be writing several articles, including simple tips you can use from Officer Sam Rodriguez and the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office that can help protect you and your family. Watch for this series of articles that will discuss the steps you can take to prevent an assault or burglary and discuss what to do if you become a victim.


If you live in the Jacksonville area and would like to know more about women’s self defense please contact:

Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at www.jaxsheriff.org. JSO offeres free 2 hour seminars to the public and over 75 personal safety brochures.

The next Jacksonville area seminar available will be held:

If you are interested in a series of lessons you can contact the Viden Group who offers a six week self defense course.

If you live outside of Jacksonville, contact your local Sheriff’s Office to get more information on self defense and classes in your area.
