Ass-kicking lessons in Seattle: Looking for personal recommendations.

I have a female friend who will be embarking on a year-long solo world tour visiting several somewhat politically and socially unstable regions. I would like to get her a gift certificate for a full-contact self-defense workshop or short series of classes. I'm looking for recommendations for specific self-defense styles and especially for specific class sites/schools that can give her a solid grounding in situational awareness, moves to use on an assailant, etc. We're both in Seattle.
She'll be leaving in a few months, so I'm looking for a quick-and-dirty here's-how-to-incapacitate-someone-in-six-sessions-or-less type of thing.
I'm willing to spend up to $200 - $300. Cheaper is, of course, better.
(Yes, I know that the goal of these classes is to teach you to identify and remove yourself from a bad situation before ass-kicking is necessary. I'd just like to give her some extra skills. And it takes no packing space!)
