Inspiring, caring, understanding, strong, and self-assured.
To my surprise, I found the verbal parts of the class the most beneficial. Instead of just preparing us for the chance of an all-out attack, we learned skills that have been helping me to navigate more assertively through everyday situations. You helped all of us to view self-defense holistically, and asked us to question our role in making this world less violent.
The teachers are nonjudgmental: they are not going to tell you that what you are doing is wrong.
Everybody needs this!
This class opened a door for me that I didn’t know existed. I know exactly what I would do if I needed to. It was the first time in my life that I felt that. Even if something happened, I would still feel safe in myself.
I feel more confident, yet not complacent. I am learning to incorporate no into my everyday life.
I wish other women/girls could experience THIS feeling of girrrrlpower, instead of listening to Cosmo and Glamour to tell them where their power lies.
What an empowering, enlightening class! You gave me a wonderfully empowering gift – the ability to speak! You helped take away some of the fear that I had by having me realize that I have some power within.
Her calm, steady energy felt reassuring.
Thank you for a wonderful class. I will spread the word around my high school and to every interested girl/woman I know!
