Self Defense Class

Learn the fundamentals to defend oneself from a potential predator in the event of an attack.

The Women’s Self Defense Workshop will not be basic training in martial arts.  Instead, the focus will be on basic self-defense techniques that are easy to implement that can be practiced well after the workshop has ended.

Participants will also be provided with practical tips for personal safety. Knowledge is power!

There will be some physical activity, so dress comfortably in sweats or exercise attire. No skirts or dresses. 


Guest Speaker: Stephanie Spivey, Co-owner of Kuk Sool Won of Rogers Martial Arts Center

Stephanie Spivey and her husband Eric own Kuk Sool Won of Rogers Martial Arts Center. The Center is celebrating its 14th year.  The art of Kuk Sool Won is a traditional Korean martial art. It is a complete martial art system that combines hand striking, kicking, throwing, grappling, joint-locking, falling, acrobatics, animal-styled techniques, and 24 traditional weapons into a “hard-soft” style emphasizing speed and fluidity. Founded in 1958, Kuk Sool Won is a comprehensive martial arts system, derived from the rich and varied martial arts techniques and traditions that have arisen in Korea.  Boasting approximately 1 million practitioners worldwide, there are Kuk Sool Won schools in over 25 states in the U.S., including 5 schools in Arkansas, and several counties worldwide.

Stephanie first began her martial arts training in Taekwondo in the late 1990s. She decided to study Kuk Sool Won after seeing how much Eric enjoyed the training. She took to the training with enthusiasm. Over the years, she has worked to increase her skills and knowledge through Kuk Sool Won seminars, workshops and competitions as much as her very busy schedule permits. As an Instructor and co-owner, she conducts Orientation classes and Women’s Self-Defense Workshops. She also assists Eric in teaching and training all students.  Stephanie is currently testing for her master level in Kuk Sool Won.
