Girl Scouts Self Defense Classes

There are 2 age groups for camps. The first class is for grades K-5 and includes anti-bully procedures, anti-abduction, 911 drills, awareness, family communication and more. The second class is for grades 6-12 and includes hand to hand, escapes, anti-abduction, striking, strike defense, ground survival and understanding criminal psychology. The classes are very engaging and parents are encouraged to stay for the class as well as participate. The fee for the class covers both the child and parent so that the family can grow stronger together.

The goal is safer families, strong character and empowered girls.

While there are camps scheduled through the girls scouts organization. COBRA Pinellas also offers troop specific class times for groups over 10. You may choose to meet at one of our facilities in St Pete, Pinellas Park or Clearwater. Our team can also come to you! If you have a space our certified team can come out to provide the training on site.
