Scholarships

Scholarships for Membership

 

SICA MMA offers membership waivers or scholarships for certain situations to Victims of Abuse.  This would include both women and children.  Other exceptions can be made as well.  

The qualifications for this type of program would be a brief letter of recommendation from your local church, women’s center, or from local law enforcement and a short interview with one of our instructors.  Because your safety is paramount to us, no details of your membership will be publicized.  

Let us help you take a stand against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.  If you or someone you know is a victim of abuse, please reach out for help.  Please contact us with any questions on qualifications.
We also offer a monthly Women’s Self-Defense Class ages 13 and up, as well as an Abduction & Bullying Defense Class for kids ages 6-14.

Women’s Self-Defense Class:

- Fears, safety, and situational awareness
- Realities of physical assaults
- Attackers and their patterns
- Techniques and strategies to self-defense

The techniques are designed to be immediately usable and highly effective, regardless of size.
The class will be a 1 1/2-hour block of time with breaks in between segments.  Participants will be taught Self-Protection, Abduction Prevention and Rape Defense.  They will be working with partners throughout the training.  Participants should wear comfortable athletic clothes, no jewelry such as bracelets, long or hoop earrings, rings, or chains.  
For ages 12 and up!
