Download Franklin Joseph Power To Women Workshops PDF Brochure Well, based on latest statistics, existing Women self defense workshops are not just obsolete but a JOKE on our country! As fueled by media reports, most women worst fears is sexual abuse by a gang on a lonely street, from self defense experts to citizen, happily look for quick fix solutions in martial arts / self defense tricks.

  • Criminals will rarely attack the way, it’s taught in any self defense class.
  • Most women are insecure to use tactics as its based on size & strength.
  • The surprise & violence of the attack would make any brain freeze in fear
  • Knives welding criminals are not bullied by mere punches and kicks

So do you think that these criminals and sexual predators are having the last laugh at our blind ignorance? Power to Women Workshop methodology is ‘Start with the Crime, Study the Criminal Psychology’ then expose the raw reality of Why, Who & What makes Crime, Harassment & Sexual Abuse on women.

  • Violent Unknown Attackers – Ninja Kubtaon Pressure Points & Krav Maga Israeli Military Self Defense.
  • Deceptive Known Attackers – Educate & Empower the women to help Avoid, Prevent, Diffuse & Escape.

Our Power to Women Workshops are

  • ⌘   Fear & Insecurity Management vs Crime & Violence
  • ⌘   Safety & Psychological Empowerment vs Harassment & Abuse

With a stranger or violent crime, we will teach you BadAzz Krav Maga Israeli Military Self Defense which is based on science not size & strength! However, With 94% known attackers or non-lethal threats, blind use of Women Self Defense’s Punches & Kicks will just invokes more violence & even after the incident, she still has to deal with same man / men from the same office, house, locality & city.

Let’s work on a new solution. Let’s change India, one person at a time starting with the person in the mirror.

One of the biggest regret some rape or sexual abuse victims have is – if someone had told them the truth about crime, violence & sexual abuse, and got them prepared – maybe to help prevent, avoid & escape before threat become real.

  • Instead of being a pepper spray wielding insecure girl, after Power to Women workshop, I have emerged more alert, better informed, prepared to walk the street, relying more on myself being a women instead of a man.

    Anusha Suresh

    Participant in Power to Women Workshop

  • The toughest part of Women self-defence training for a woman, therefore, lies not in the physical stress she has to endure, but in overcoming the barriers her mind constantly creates for her. If you want to empower a woman, start with her mind.


    Global Brand Communication Head, Bangalore

  • I am glad Franklin Joseph uses his years of experience working for children and women from the NGO world as the base of the workshop and constantly learns how not to be a man or a martial artist in his sessions.

    Ottilie Kumar


  • No matter how the media reports, it’s not men against women! Global change on women safety can only start from within ourselves – the greatest enemy is within us – our mind not willing to change from older mentality to new one.
