It is our aim to make available to you the knowledge, the resources, and the opportunities for clear-cut, well-defined and rigorously exacting, physical instruction which you will find irreplaceable when the performance of personal defense becomes an inevitable necessity in today’s changing economic, political and social climates.
We are keenly aware of the vital role that attitude and mindset play in the exercise of preventive measures and in the execution of self or personal defensive techniques, especially for women, and our training meticulously addresses this.
In the vast ocean of indispensable resources that exist throughout the worldwide web, we acknowledge the host of valuable associations whose safety concerns and training modalities parallel our own, and we are proud to be a part of an ever-growing network of institutions which are genuinely interested in helping our communities be safer, saner and more enjoyable places to live.

Desert View Middle School, a member school of the Ysleta Independent School District public school system in El Paso, contracted Ms. Myrna Boyer and the Women's Personal Defense Center for mother/daughter Personal Defense Workshops. The events were held April 25th, 2009.
While life certainly seems to hold no guarantees for the personal welfare and safety of ourselves and our children, there are sensible safeguards we can all take. As the old saying goes, "God helps those who help themselves." Please consider attending one of our Women's Personal Defense (WPD) Workshops with your teen daughters (ages 12 and older).
We also offer several programs which are, in most cases, free of charge for children, ages 5—12. Click here for more information.
