Mighty Knights Self-Defense Program

Our instructors are UCF police officers who are experienced and knowledgeable on topics of personal safety and threat awareness. This course primarily focuses on topics of mindset, preparation and safety awareness, but also utilizes defensive tactics instructors, certified by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to demonstrate basic physical defense techniques. Our courses are designed to provide attendees with information, tactics and options which we believe may be useful for various types of crimes perpetrated against victims.

There is no cost for the class. As an inclusive, public institution of higher education, UCF offers the Mighty Knights classes to all students, staff, and faculty within the UCF community. A valid UCF affiliated e-mail account must be used when registering for this course.

UCFPD offers several opportunities throughout each semester to participate in Mighty Knights, and all upcoming dates are listed in the form below.

Registration is required to attend this course and you must fill out the form below to sign up. Please note, class sizes are small to ensure each participant is able to get the most from the class, so there is a limited amount of space available. You will receive an e-mail with class information prior to the course date.

If you have a group of 11 or more and would like to host a private self-defense lecture/demonstration for your group, please email .
