This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is image-84.png

Living in a world where women are increasingly in the wake of the dire risk of being grabbed, harassed, molested, and raped in front of a crowd, they must learn a martial art and prepare to protect themselves.

On the other hand, any women’s martial arts will work like a miracle on the road; if you have been trained in it for a long time, some types of martial arts will be more effective and more appropriate to you than others.



There is more than one reason why the Reitenbach Institute of Taekwondo should be the first stop for women wanting to start martial arts for self-defense.

Most martial arts rely heavily on striking and it is not feasible in reality to think a smaller woman can knock out a much larger man. Also, most attacks on females are hands on attacks like being grabbed, thrown to the ground, or choked.

Reitenbach Institute Certified Taekwondo covers all of these scenarios and more.

At the Reitenbach Institute of Taekwondo in a very short amount of time you will understand how to use self-defense-based techniques which you will commit to muscle memory.

The Reitenbach Institute of Tae Kwon Do is one of the few, largest, oldest group of Olympic Style Taekwondo schools in the San Francisco Bay Area that is based on TRADITION and REPUTATION as recognized by the Kukkiwon, the World Tae Kwon Do Federation and the USA Tae Kwon Do.

It represents over 50 years of Olympic style world-class Tae Kwon Do experience headed by world renowned masters.

Reitenbach Institute of Taekwondo does not just have an advantage because of techniques that are designed for a smaller weaker person to dominate a stronger person. You will also get to inoculate yourself to the shock of an initial assault of being attacked.

Eventually women who train with Reitenbach Institute of Taekwondo will train with all different body types, sizes, and all genders in a controlled environment rolling/sparring.

You will be put under pressure out of your comfort zone to practice your techniques with a completely resistant opponent, developing reflexes and a mindset of weathering the storm for survival and to naturalize your training partner.

The confidence instilled from just being able to get to this stage even at a beginner level reduces the risk of becoming a target in the first place.

We can tell you of so many stories where ladies at our Institute have not been training long and were assaulted or threatened and were able control themselves emotionally to not freeze up but, to stand-up for themselves and set boundaries.

Every Woman Should Add Taekwondo Martial Arts to Her Fitness Routine

Reitenbach Taekwondo martial arts can sculpt your body, sharpen your defense skills, and make you feel pretty freakin’ almighty. 

“Reitenbach Institute Martial arts help you learn powerful new ways to use your body,” says Michael Kissinger, a former US Army Special Forces Member, 4th Degree Kukkiwon Certified Blackbelt and personal trainer in San Francisco, who routinely incorporates Taekwondo into his Personal Development sessions with clients. “

Here is why you will want a piece of the action.

The benefits of enrolling in their classes include physical fitness, character development, and acquiring self-defense skills.

1.    It is cardio that is a cut above.

Expect to drip sweat as you are pummeling a heavy bag or flowing through fight combos-but time will fly by. “It’s constant movement,” Grand Master Reitenbach says. “You just lose yourself in it.” Plus, mixing it up on the mat is a low-impact way to reach high intensity. (Try this in Yoga or…) 

2. You will sculpt strong abs and lean legs.

You are not really chopping and punching with your arms. “A punch’s power comes from the core,” Grand Master Reitenbach says. “You also need core strength to stabilize your body when you kick; otherwise, you’ll fall over.”

Meanwhile, your legs benefit from all that kicking too: Firing up a kick takes multiple muscles, including glutes, hamstrings, calves, and various stabilizing muscles.

3.    There is a big mental bonus.

“Reitenbach Institute Taekwondo Martial arts are just as much about building character as about learning to fight,” Roberts says. “They reinforce being humble, disciplined, and respectful.” Those virtues translate to other areas of your life too, like fostering solid relationships. As Roberts says, “The benefits are beyond aesthetic.”
