The Vancouver Institute of Self Defense is a non-profit community service effort offered to residents of Clark County, WA. It does not compete with store-front martial art businesses. As a policy, we cannot take students under the age of 14, and we require any teenagers below the age of 16 to be accompanied by a parent or guardian - primarily forsafety reasons. Parents who choose to attend with their teenager will be amazed at the good that comes from this effort... for both of you.

If you want to learn self defense in a friendly environment come in and join us on Fridays at our regular class.

We spend the first few minutes warming up by practicing“ukemi” (how to fall safely) which is very important all by itself. After that our Head Instructor, and/or one of our many other instructors, will teach a variety of fun, practical, and important self defense techniques to the group. In some classes we will end by“taking the line” which is a great way to apply techniques in a controlled situation.

We do not publish a price list or collect a monthly fee. Everyone at theVancouver Institute of Self Defense believes in spreading self defense to anyone and everyone that wants to learn. We are a private run class and our dues are something we only discuss in person. We ask all interested students come view a class and speak with our Head Instructor, Jeff Wynn about joining. I think you will be surprised when you do.
