The Girls Who Fight Self Defense Program for Survivors of Human Trafficking

Fight For The One is the Girls Who Fight self defense program for female survivors of human trafficking. Our mission is to foster such a powerful change in each woman's self-image that they present themselves, advocate for themselves, protect themselves, and believe in themselves more confidently— and in turn become less likely to be re-victimized. From victim, to someone who is stronger than their past, excited about their future, and prepared, willing, and able to defend their life.

The biggest predictor of future victimization is past victimization

80% of trafficked/exploited women who leave their situations end up back on the street without a safe recovery home

There are currently an estimated 300,000 victims of human trafficking in Texas, including 79,000 minors, per year

The Self Defense Course

Our 12-class self defense program teaches survivors how to defend common attacks with techniques from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts.


This program was developed with the help of human trafficking survivors who identified the threat scenarios they faced most. Lessons include defending strikes, chokes, grabs, hair pulls, being pinned to the ground, and more.

Women also learn strategies for detecting, deterring, and surviving violence. Upon completion women receive a course certificate to acknowledge their accomplishment!
