About Girl Army

Girl Army is a self-defense collective that began in 1994 through Suigetsukan Dojo. We are a community based collective, run entirely on volunteer work and some student contributions.


Anyone who completes the Basics Course is welcome to attend our meetings. Meetings are roughly once a month and half business, half training. Members (anyone who attends meetings) can receive training to participate in classes as attackers (uke training) and to teach classes.


Suigetsukan is a collectively run, non-profit martial arts school in Oakland. For information about classes in Jujitsu, Aikido, or Toyama Ryu Battodo, call 510.452.3941 or visit their website: http://www.suigetsukan.org
