Here is just a sample of the feedback and testimonials we've received about our many women's self-defense seminars and training programs.
All testimonials are on file for review.
"“College Safety For Her” program benefits not only college bound students but women of all ages. Angie engaged students right away by using humor to teach a topic that is not easily spoken about. Her enthusiastic style captured her audience of high school students, parents and faculty. Angie’s program covered the prevention piece through her hands on techniques. Her use of acronyms and examples will help any woman to be more observant of her surroundings and to understand the importance of having a plan.
Having Angie come to Central High School gave students and mothers the opportunity to learn strategies to protect themselves in a non- threatening environment. Those who participated left the gym having the self confidence and reassurance of knowing what to do in most situations that may arise. Feedback from students, parents and faculty was exceptionally positive. I highly recommend her program to any women especially those in the 16-24 year old age group."

Angie shared a lot of great life-saving tips and tricks, presented in a way that was fun and memorable. Thanks for protecting our most valuable resources - ourselves!"

"The university staff and student participants of Angie's empowerment class in February of 2008 had a wonderful experience. Angie made all feel comfortable and, by the end of the program, had participants clearly feeling more knowledgeable and attuned to the resources we as women have to protect ourselves. We'd love to have her come back and build upon the foundation of empowerment she fostered in participants. This program was a wonderful component of our Women's Wellness Week."

"I wanted to give a sincere Thank You for coming out to train our staff here at Triple C Housing... The Empowerment Series was excellent.
I cannot even begin to tell you all the positive feedback I have received from the staff who attended. Just about every person is interested in continuing training in your RAD program or simple having you return for a refresher course.
What made your training so great is that not only did you present necessary physical moves for protection, but dove into the psychological and physiological differences between men and women and, moreover, the criminal mind vs. the victim persona.
Furthermore your high energy, knowledge, and deep devotion to women’s safety and empowerment was very evident and only added to the enjoyment of the experience.
The training was by far the most interesting, fun, educational, and USEFUL training the agency has ever had. We would love to have you back! Thank you so much again from all the staff here at Triple C Housing!"

"I would recommend this to junior high or high school age as a first introduction (or ealier) beacuase I think by the time women reach college and beyond, they have already encountered a bad or unsafe situation. Awareness is 90% of preventing an attack. Angie was very animated and knowledgeable. She was enthusiastic about teaching.
