What is the biggest success your business has experienced recently?

In August 2020, we have added ongoing twice per week classes of our certified Women Empowered Self Defense classes. We teach how to neutralize the most common attacks. And beyond the physical techniques, Women Empowered also reinforces awareness principles, risk assessment, and verbal and psychological strategies a woman can use to set safe boundaries with others. At the core of this mindset is the belief that we are worth defending.
