MSU Self-Defense Club

The Self Defense for Women program provides self defense workshops to groups and organizations affiliated with Michigan State University. These workshops are sponsored by IM Sports and Recreative Services, and they are run by student facilitators who attend Michigan State University and have received extensive training in self defense and/or martial arts. Although our program focuses primarily on the safety needs of women, we welcome men to participate in our programs. Our workshops are approximately 2 hours long, they’re free of charge, and our facilitators will come to the location of your choice to host a workshop for your organization. Keep reading for more specific information about our programs and how to schedule one for your group.
