This class has affected my life in many ways. I am now able to deal with many suppressed feelings. This is an opening for me. I finally allow myself to feel anger without blaming myself. I now realize I have the right to happiness and I will fervently fight whoever tries to take this.
Everybody needs this!
This class was a springboard. Now I know where I need to go in the rest of my life.
I feel more confident, yet not complacent. I am learning to incorporate no into my everyday life.
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 wish other women/girls could experience THIS feeling of girrrrlpower, instead of listening to Cosmo and Glamour to tell them where their power lies.
The teachers are nonjudgmental: they are not going to tell you that what you are doing is wrong.
Inspiring, caring, understanding, strong, and self-assured.
Her calm, steady energy felt reassuring.
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.
