Empowering Personal Safety Classes throughout Southern California
Knowing you can handle yourself in any physical situation means you carry yourself differently. If you believe your life is worth fighting for, you’re more likely to stand up and speak up for yourself in all areas of your life.
We offer dynamic, empowering personal safety training. Our classes include assertiveness and awareness skills, boundary-setting, verbal strategies, and full-force physical assailant defense throughout Southern California.
Our training gives students the skills to avoid assault, if possible, and to physically defend themselves if necessary. It puts students in touch with their innate power regardless of size, strength, fitness or (dis)ability level. We are women and men working together to end violence in our society.
A quote from a recent Basics Course graduate on Great Non-Profits:
I am so thankful that my friend Ellen asked me to take this course. I found “myself” in the course. I cannot explain how I walked in the door one person and walked out the door as a different human being. As a woman I walk through life daily being afraid to walk in a darkened garage, being afraid to get in an elevator, for fear that someone is going to hurt me. I left the course realizing that I have a say in the matter . . . I have a voice for myself. I can say, “No.” Not only can I say, “no,” I can deliver consequences when what I say is not honored. Guess what? I might have to hurt somebody … and so be it. That emboldens me to stand tall, walk proud and be fearless. What a gift!!
