At Center for Violence Prevention and Self Defense we believe that all people have a right to personal safety, regardless of their financial situation.


The Center for Violence Prevention and Self Defense Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance for our students who cannot afford the full tuition. We reserve a quarter of the spaces in each public class for scholarship recipients. We also offer discounts for not-for-profit organizations to host private classes.

Center for Violence Prevention and Self Defense does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical ability, financial circumstances or abuse history.
