Contact Info: Abi Smith, 310-506-4303,

The aim of this club convo is to provide students with the tangible tools to achieve the peace of mind and confidence that comes from learning to defend their bodies from physical evils. There will be a focus on the way that Biblical healing encompasses physical, mental, and spiritual health. Specifically, we will work to understand the way that physical health and protection intersects with and supports our relationship with Jesus.

Students will meet at Tapout Woodland Hills at 7:30 pm, beginning Monday, March 12th to participate in a series of six weekly, 45 minute self-defense classes led by Coach Ryan Trujillo (NASM CPT, Corrective Exercise (CES), and Fitness Nutrition (FNS), personal trainer). Classes will include Biblically-grounded discussion of the physical-spiritual connection (1 Corinthians 6:19,20) and the importance of honing our ability/willingness to protect and care for our own bodies.

Students who attend all 6 courses will receive official Tapout Self-Defense Certification. Each student is responsible for paying an instruction fee, which is being offered at an extremely discounted rate with payment plans available. We want this group to be accessible to all students, so please contact if cost is a barrier for you. Students must register with Professor Smith for Convocation and call 747-226-3033 (Tapout Fitness Woodland Hills) to register for the class by March 1st in order to get the discounted instruction rate.
