Rebecca, Defense-ability's owner has a genuine passion for women's safety and it's evident in her training.
She volunteered to teach a free class for the women in our townhouse complex in downtown San Jose, and exceeded our expectations.
From the beginning of class and up till the end, she kept our female participants of various ages (15 y/o to 60+), ethnic groups, life experiences, and fitness levels engaged. Not to mention, pumped! Her use of videos and real life examples were real eye openers on how important it is to be aware of your surroundings.
Class participants were able to practice their newly acquired self defense skills on "Dave the dummy," and also enjoyed getting the opportunity to learn how to use both a stun gun and pepper gel. Rebecca also gave us recommendations on what to look for when purchasing a stun gun and showed us an ingenious smartphone app that can help us if we are in danger.
Rebecca has transformed a tough topic into one everyone felt comfortable talking about and asking questions.
The class was a real confidence booster!
Be prepared to get involved, learn a lot and have a great time.
No sitting on the sidelines!
It's hard to believe that this class was only three hours.
Time sure does fly when your having fun.
Thank you Rebecca and Defense-Ability for your support of our diverse communities within Silicon Valley.
