Arizona is a passionate self defense educator, trauma survivor, ex-bouncer, domestic abuse worker, Rape Crisis volunteer, and martial artist with over 10 years experience.
She’s also the 2nd woman in Scottish history to ever receive a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
In 2018 she officially founded Self Defence Project with a mission in mind to empower people to resist (re)victimisation and if applicable, move on from trauma, through a trauma-informed approach to self defense education, which addresses both the mental and physical aspects.
In 2020, she was approached to join forces with the Firebrand Alliance in an effort to broaden our collective impact and better serve the broader global community.
We are thrilled to have her on board!
