Kym Rock is a former victim of domestic violence and cancer survivor who created the Fight Like A Girl program to change the statistics of violence in our world and teach women and kids personal violence prevention.

A nineteen-year proven program of unique techniques and skills developed by Kym Rock to teach women and girls to think smarter and get away from an attacker, abductor or abuser.  


Our mission is to make a difference in the horrendous statistics of violence and abuse around the world through the teaching of escape techniques and life skills.  


The program encompasses seminars and on-going classes that empower women and kids to have greater self-esteem through knowledge of these physical and mental life skills so they can grow to their full potential.  


Fight Like A Girl is fun, always active and creates a vibrant community of people who can make a difference through personal violence prevention. 


Because her life has had a significant impact on changing the way women and girls learn self defense and what she overcame in her life to be where she is today.. her life is being depicted in a Hollywood Feature Film called “Fight Like A Girl!” The true story of a real female karate kid.
