Self Defense Classes for Students, Faculty, & Staff

We are excited to bring self-defense classes back to Northwest Academy!

Working with Wildfire Self Defense, we have two(2) three-hour workshops available for female-identifying, non-binary, and gender non-conforming high school students, faculty, and staff. 
Please RSVP for a workshop here. Each workshop is open to 20 participants with preference given to high school students. Workshop dates are Tuesday, April 18 from 4:30 to 7:30 pm and Sunday, April 23 from 10 am to 1 pm. Please RSVP by Monday, April 10. If classes fill, we will start a waitlist and let you know if spots open up. 

While these first two workshops are geared toward high school students and older, if you are interested in your middle school student taking a similar workshop, please fill out the form so that we can gauge interest and plan another event.
