Hi, I'm Rachel Mahloch, aka Battle Mom®. I am a personal safety coach and self-protection expert.

I founded Battle Mom® in 2015 with a mission to help women become confident and feel safe. Since then, I have added Battle Girl®, Battle Woman® and Free From Fear to the family of Battle Brands.

I have nearly 20 years' experience in multiple martial arts disciplines, earning two second degree black belts. I currently apprentice under Rogue JKD which teaches skills in unarmed and weapons combat, anger management, crisis communication and situational awareness.

Everyone is affected by sexual violence.

Violent situations happen more often than you think. We can change these statistics by preventative practices and real-time defense skills and strategies to remain calm and controlled in the face of physical and mental harm.


One in three women globally, around 736 million, have been subjected to physical or sexual violence in their lifetimes, according to new analysis by the World Health Organization (WHO).


Campus Sexual Violence:
Women ages 18-24 are at an elevated risk of sexual violence.



1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime (14.8% completed, 2.8% attempted).

This class is AWESOME!! You will learn some great self defense techniques that can be used in common real life scenarios. You'll also walk away feeling empowered, confident, and able to de-escalate situations and set boundaries to prevent them from happening. This class has it all!

Isabel Lopez

Had the best time taking this self defense class with Rachel! It was such an empowering experience and I feel much more confident about handling myself when situations may arise. Love the work she's doing for women and this community. Highly recommend taking class from her!
