As self defense is not really a martial art unto itself, there really is no organized history of self defense. In many ways, the history of martial arts as a whole can fill the need, since most self defense courses utilize techniques and forms from a variety of martial arts disciplines.
If there is an art of self defense, a large part of it is simply being aware of your surroundings at all times. If you can see a potential danger area, stay away from it. Don't put yourself in to bad situations. If you find yourself in one, try to get away or de-escalate the situation itself. These are all primary tenets in most self defense courses these days, as prevention and avoidance are seen as primary goals for students.
Actual self defense protection techniques normally deal with two different concepts: how to deal with armed and un-armed aggressors. There are different techniques in use for both, with a completely different style needed for someone armed with a knife than for someone simply attacking you with no weapon at all. All of the various techniques taught in personal self defense classes form a series of tactics to escape from a bad situation, and to deal with it if absolutely necessary as a last resort.
All types of self defense classes are offered through ClassClassifieds, including children’s self defense classes, women’s self defense classes, and men’s self defense classes.

Another great way to learn self defense is by joining a self defense club or by attending a self defense camp (perhaps a self defense summer camp?), which you can find on ClassClassifieds!

Self defense lessons offered through teachers on ClassClassifieds are typically with a private self defense instructor or at a self defense academy, although online self defense classes may be available. What are you waiting for? Take a self defense class and learn self defense today!
