8th Annual
fodada International Women’s
Self Defense Day - November 17th, 2019

We are very excited to announce the 8th Annual fodada International Women's Self Defense Day. This program aims to empower women by providing and facilitating free self-defense classes in communities around the globe.


In the past seven years, we have reached milestones in this movement. We’ve expanded our locations from right here in Southern California, to as far as Pakistan, Israel, South Africa, India, and more. We have provided these self-defense classes to over 6,000 women in 30 US cities and 15 countries around the globe at no cost, and we are excited to expand our program further this year.

From schools, to community centers, business board rooms and to open fields, fodada partners with individuals, groups, companies and organizations like yours that recognize the importance of women’s empowerment, and are interested in becoming catalysts for this powerful message and movement. There is no cost for the program and our facilitation.

To inquire about additional information or partnership please contact fodada at anna@fodadawear.com
