We now strive to promote self-esteem and empowerment through self-defense. A woman is attacked every 2 ½ minutes in the United States. Are you going away to college? Do you work late? Do you walk alone? Do you wish you knew how to protect yourself? Through this class you will be prepared and strengthened for any situation. Our wish is for every girl to be empowered.
