Lauren is very encouraging and patient. An excellent teacher, she makes everyone feel comfortable.
I feel more confident, yet not complacent. I am learning to incorporate no into my everyday life.
Thank you for such an empowering, confidence-inspiring class. When you first announced that the class would teach both verbal and physical defense, I was a bit hesitant – I presumed I already knew how to verbally defend myself, and thought I was ready to get down to more hard core self-defense moves.
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.
Inspiring, caring, understanding, strong, and self-assured.
This class not only showed me how to defend my body, but it taught me how to express myself as well. It nurtured my soul and showed me that to be a woman does not mean that I am physically helpless.
This class was a springboard. Now I know where I need to go in the rest of my life.
When I took my [previous self-defense] class, I learned how to fend off physical attacks, but it took me much, much longer to learn how to develop and maintain healthy relationships. I spent too many years in an abusive relationship . . . Now I’m a lot more careful about defending myself – which is why your class was so important to me.
The teachers role-modeled being strong women.
The teachers are nonjudgmental: they are not going to tell you that what you are doing is wrong.
