I’d strongly recommend it. I was surprised to learn how easy it can be to fight back, even with a larger attacker.
Even if you forget the techniques, it’s good to know you, even as a potential victim, can affect a situation to your benefit.
These are good skills for city dwelling women to have.
Everyone needs this skill, practice, and training!
It was a great experience and I will tell my friends!
The unit on asserting oneself verbally is really valuable.
This is an excellent value for the one-on-one training!
You will be surprised at how effective the simplest things can be, and with hardly any training.
We can bring this workshop to your work or social group. Please contact us for additional information.
