Lina Khalifeh founded SheFighter in 2012 and it is the first Self-Defense studio for women only in the Middle East designed to empower women both physically and physiologically through Self-Defense training. Lina had the idea in 2010 and already started training women at the basement of her parent’s house until she had the fund and legal registration to open her own studio. Her goal is for women to feel more confident, secure and strong to defend themselves from different violent situations. Her will to open her studio was motivated by the fact that she wanted to provide women a way of defending themselves because she says “I didn’t find one real solution for violence against women”.

Lina has more than 17 years of experience in practicing Martial Arts like Taekwondo, Kick-Boxing, Kung Fu and Boxing. As well, the founder holds the black belt in Taekwondo 3DAN, and has represented Jordan in many competitions and championships (National and International). Lina got also certified as a trainer in Canada and North America.
