Too often, concern about safety stops adults from enjoying life fully. The truth is, a few simple “People Safety” skills can prevent or stop most harassment and violence. Our active, upbeat approach makes these skills easy to learn quickly. Invest a few hours with us for a lifetime of greater confidence in your ability to protect yourself and those you love!

Using examples relevant to adults of all ages, we’ll practice skills to:
Assess situations and respond quickly
Project awareness and confidence
Stop unwanted attention
Use voice as a safety tool
Set strong boundaries
Take charge of emotional triggers
Get help - and persist until you get it!
Deal effectively with verbal aggression
Stop most attacks before they start with a few simple habits
Use powerful physical self-defense skills that need little strength and no ongoing practice. This class includes full force practice with a paddedinstructor.
