How it works

Participants will select a date through an online survey. All participants pay a $10 reservation deposit in advance that will be refunded after attending the workshop. No-shows that do not cancel their reservation 48 hours in advance will not be refunded.

About the course

All equipment is provided. Approximately 50% of the class is physical and 50% is lecture/discussion oriented. It isn’t entirely technique based; I teach more about Tools, Targets, and Tactics. I address many of the unpleasant realities of common assault situations such as when a man grabs a woman by the hair or when an assailant tries to bring a woman to the ground.

Much of this course focuses on the prevention of an assault and therefore never having to get physical.

Whichever physical technique is taught, we practice it slowly and safely, gradually building the intensity in a controlled, supervised environment. The methodology I teach is a simple format to remember. It is designed so that it can easily be passed on and shared with other women in your life: daughters, girlfriends, and mothers.

For six years I was a corrections officer and court transporter for juvenile offenders so I have a unique perspective on violent crime, predatory mindset, and the legal ramifications of use of force in self-defense. I also earned state certifications as a Defensive Tactics instructor for law enforcement agencies.

I can customize this course to any needs you would like addressed. I’ve taught this course to companies, which aids in team building, and I’ve provided it to groups of girlfriends, where it became a confidence booster and bonding experience.

What’s been said about this workshop:

“It supports and encourages a person’s own common-sense approach while showing simple techniques that build confidence.” – attendee

“We not only had a great time but also learned many skills that could help if ever threatened or unsafe.” – attendee

An ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure.

Testimonial

I was impressed, my first day of class, by the informal atmosphere. Everyone is introduced to the program at their own pace according to their abilities and background. There is lots of encouragement, not intimidation. The class time is well structured and makes good use of the time. The instructor uses a broad range of effective but basic and easy to learn techniques that a student puts into action much more quickly than “traditional” schools. My personal reasons for going to this school is that I can get a brisk workout (about as much or as little as I put into it) and learn a skill at the same time. There are no pressures to get to that next rank level. You’ll know if your skills are getting sharper without a new rank to show your friends. After a bad day at work, this is an excellent way to get out those frustrations and get a good nights sleep.
