Welcome to my first public class of 2024! 

This hands-on, empowerment-based women's self-defense workshop is designed to be a positive and supportive space for women to learn practical safety skills. These strategies can be used for managing uncomfortable or dangerous situations you may encounter with friends, family, partners, co-workers, classmates, and strangers, as you move through the world. This is self-defense by women, for women!
