Self-defense classes are run in 2-3 hour workshops by trainers who have been taught the principles of Krav Maga by True Krav in Cape Town. These principles are used to create workshops geared specifically towards teaching women how to disarm gun and knife attacks. We also incorporate anti-rape tactics in all classes.


Fight Back SA runs a free pepper spray distribution programme, and ensures that women living in dangerous communities are provided with this deterrent mechanism. To date, FBSA has donated over 4000 pepper sprays to women in need.


We also connect women to the resources they may need, should they have undergone a traumatic experience. We are able to assist victims of Gender Based Violence with free legal advise, should they choose to proceed with placing charges against their perpetrators.
