SheFighter is the first Self-Defense studio and program for women started in Jordan in 2012, and expanded to 35 countries.
SheFighter’s mission is not just to empower women in Self-Defense, but to also empower them mentally and psychologically.
SheFighter is raising 20,000 dollars to expand in North America and run a total of 6 courses (6 to 8 hours each course) for women and girls, focusing on Black communities, refugees and schools.
If we reach 50,000 dollars the Funding will also help us build a studio in LA as a HQ expand our operations in training of trainers, and to keep working with girls and women to reach our vision to end violence against women globally.
SheFighter was born in the mind of Lina in January 2010, however the legal registration and formal birth of SheFighter was in April 2010, in Amman, Jordan.
After starting training women at the basement of her parent’s house, Lina managed to start her own and first SheFighter studio in 2012.
SheFighter Studio is the 1st Self-Defense Studio designed to empower women both mentally and physiologically through Self-Defense Techniques.
By learning SheFighter’s Techniques women will feel more confident, secure and strong to defend themselves from different violent situations.
The Idea of SheFighter about women’s Self-Defense has come from its founder about violence against women by which Lina describes it as “I didn’t find one real solution for violence against women”.
Lina has more than 17 years of experience in practicing Martial Arts like Taekwondo, Kick-Boxing, Kung Fu and Boxing.
As well, the founder holds the black belt in Taekwondo 3DAN, and has represented Jordan in many competitions and championships (National and International).
