At the core of the program are basic skills, such as situational awareness and boundary setting. In addition we teach “street smarts” – safety information for everyday living. You’ll also learn very effective physical self-defense techniques.

While learning these, participants gain critical skills, increase confidence levels, and learn to recognize and avoid potentially dangerous situations they may encounter.

“Unlike martial arts, which is great but doesn’t actually prepare you for real life street situations, Rebecca teaches very simple, effective moves and provides a practice session.”

“We learned how to be more alert to the environment around us, what type of situations can be dangerous, how perpetrators think and pick victims, and, perhaps most importantly, how to physically defend ourselves.”
