Registration for all of our Pellissippi State classes is through their website,  Click on Continuing Education and then go to Course Search and type self-defense (it must have the hyphen).   We do our best to include links straight to their registration pages, but at times we post class schedules on our website and/or Facebook pages before they are officially posted to Pellissippi’s website. If you are having problems with registration or cannot find a class we have advertised, the best number to call is the Pellissippi Business Office at (865) 539-7167.  Please feel free to contact us for more information about the classes themselves.  We look forward to seeing you in class!

Current Class Schedule

Pink Diamond Defense is growing and evolving in order to address the needs of women here in the East Tennessee Area.  We are currently offering two basic self-defense courses for women, as well as some for female teens and children at Pellissippi State Community College’s Hardin Valley campus. We are currently working to add some six week women’s and female teen classes to our Pellissippi course offerings.  In the future, we hope to make use of David’s military intelligence experience in the U.S. Army as well as his civilian experience in Informational Technology with some computer and internet/social networking safety classes for parents and children.  As we have the opportunity to continue our own training at the New York campus of the Women’s Self Defense Institute, through which our instructors are certified, there will be additional course offerings.    

Need a self-defense class that can come to you?   We have mats and the ability to travel in order to reach even more women, teens, and children. In fact, if you have a space large enough and would like to sponsor an event, please let us know.  Group rates are available. 

Do you have a specific topic you and your group is interested in?  We can adapt our program to meet your needs.  For example, one organization contacted us because they were located in a not-so-great part of town and wanted us to address parking lot safety with their female employees.  Classes for Girl Scouts and Heritage Girls troops are also available.

​In addition to technique based classes, we are also available for informational based speaking engagements. Faith based organizations might be interested in our Defending Purity program.  For more information contact Michelle by phone (865)898-4573 or e-mail
