At Women's Self Defense Seminars we review situational awareness, attack avoidance, and practice basic, fundamental techniques to escape common grabs, slaps, punches and chokes. The goal is getting you away from the attack and to safety! Cost is $50.00. Time is 1:00pm to 4:00pm on Saturday. Class size is limited to 20, first registered, first served! E-mail us for dates and availability.

We are the 3rd generation of Midwest Karate Academy, a martial arts school in South Bend, IN. It was founded by Hanshi Tadashi Yamashita and Sensei James Ninios over 50 years ago. Kyoshi Jerry Wroblewski ran it for over 40 of those years. Today, Shihan Kris Gravender and Shidoin Brian Bengtsson continue its legacy and tradition as Suibukan of Indiana, an homage to Osensei Yamashita's organization.
