Self-Defense for Women Classes by Aikido of Nebraska and Madonna ProActive #LNK

Lincoln is comparatively a safe community, yet a number of reasons still exist that a woman — trail user, college student, late-night grocery shopper or movie-goer, etc. — should have basic self-defense knowledge.

 In this light, Madonna ProActive and Aikido of Nebraska will be presenting a series of Self-defense for Women classes.  

Class details

Option 1

  • One, two-hour introductory/overview class
  • Monday, Feb. 15 (6:30-8:30 p.m)

 Option 2

  • A four-week, one-hour class
  • Held each Monday, March 1-22 (time TBD)

 Both options will be presented at Madonna ProActive, near 55th & Pine Lake Road, by Aikido of Nebraska LLC  instructor Todd Alan Roberts. Fees vary; see website links for details.


Actual statements made by members of the Lincoln community:

 “I unknowingly encountered a man on one of our more beautiful, but wooded trails. This guy popped onto the trail from “nowhere” and his odd behavior caused a pit-in-my-stomach reaction. A week later, I learned that very man, who was a repeat sex offender, was arrested for an attack on the trail. It still makes my arm hairs stand up.”

 ”I told police the man grabbed my neck and tore my shirt.  It was around 1:30 in the afternoon. I was just walking on the path. I was so scared.  The man ran away after I kneed him in the groin and stabbed at him with a stick.”

“Police are looking for a man they say broke into a home, then attacked the woman who lives there after she discovered him standing over her.”

“I intend to participate in this class and just recently started thinking about self-defense in a new way. From now on, I’ll regard it as CPR. I hope I never, ever need the skill, but if I do, I’ll have the background to put the lessons to good use.”
