When can I take my classes?

After you sign up, you can take your 4 classes anytime within 8 months. If you do classes 1, 2, and 4, but miss the third week, check our online schedule to complete class 3 in a different month. Our course does move locations around the GTA, so you can either wait for it to come back to your preferred location or you can join at a different one.

Do you have a referral program?

Yes! If you sign up with a friend, or sign up more than one person, you will get $25 off each registration. Please email us for the code for this and provide the names of participants!

What about after the course? 

Every student gets 50% off any future courses by SYG. We recommend taking the course again at least twice to review the moves and get more practice. Self defense is like anything, it takes practice to be effective. 

Who are the instructors?

Our instructors are all accomplished female martial artists who have years of experience training and competing in martial arts of kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and/or wrestling. Beyond martial arts skills, our instructors are selected based on their positive attitude, engaging personality, and ability to connect with women. 

What martial arts do you teach and why?

We teach the most effective moves for real life street self defense.  These techniques are taken from the sports of Mixed Martial Arts, and can be seen in action by professional fighters who only use the best techniques to win fights—and defend themselves. Most of our program is developed from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, a ground based martial art, which is known world wide for its effectiveness in real situations, especially against bigger opponents. We also use kickboxing techniques to teach students how to defend themselves from standing. Our program was developed by MMA fighters and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belts who have over 10 years experience in martial arts and professional fighting.
