UPPER EAST SIDE —  Women at Asphalt Green on the Upper East Side are getting fit and learning self defense moves that could save their lives.

“Women’s Self Defense & Fitness” is a new class taught by third-degree black belt Chad Simon.

Unlike typical one-off self defense seminars, Asphalt Green’s class is ongoing, and is just as much a calorie-burning, muscle-toning workout as it is a self defense class.

Women hone defense moves designed for a variety of real-world situations.
