Senshido Registration

Senshido Self Defense monthly classes offer women a tool for protecting themselves against domestic violence and sexual assault. Senshido is a self-defense strategy that can be used by anyone, regardless of age, gender, size, or athletic ability. To date we have had classes for children ages 5-12, physically handicapped individuals, women, and the elderly.

The monthly classes are held once a month at YWCA Alaska, 324 East 5th Avenue, Anchorage, Alaska 99501. Anyone is welcome to attend ages 13 and up. If you would like to attend a class with your child under 13-years-old, please contact our office at 907-644-9600.



Classes have been suspended until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience!



Senshido is an economical approach to self-defense!
