Check out #5 in our series of videos showing self-defense strategies to use against harassers and bullies! Lauren and Sarah demonstrate how to use your voice, body, and face to stop harassment in three common scenarios.
I feel more confident and like I can get through anything.
Everybody needs this!
This class has given me a powerful toolkit and the confidence to yell “NO” and know I have every right to say it. It’s helped me rethink my personal boundaries and feel good about maintaining them.
This class showed me that . . . I have every right to defend myself and take care of myself the best way I know how. My first responsibility is to myself.
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.
I feel so much stronger and more confident. Now I feel good about saying no to something I don’t want, where I used to feel bad about it. This is a big change!
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.
I unfortunately had to use some tactics I learned from the workshop, as I was assaulted at the beach this summer. I honestly believe that I avoided a rape because of your training.
Lauren is very encouraging and patient. An excellent teacher, she makes everyone feel comfortable.
Thank you for a wonderful class. I will spread the word around my high school and to every interested girl/woman I know!
