Empowerment Self-Defense was created by women Martial Artists who recognized that the "self defense" they were being taught was catered to how men fight men. Therefore, they developed "Empowerment Self Defense" as a means to incorporate the social and cultural contexts specific to violence perpetrated against marginalized populations.
