If you have only a few hours to spare, spend it here. You’ll learn the most important lesson: that you have choices. In a single session you’ll learn about real risks, assailant tricks, crucial targets and how to create an impact, and releases from the most common grabs. You will learn about recognizing and dealing with manipulations and ploys used by people you may know (including in domestic violence) as well as complete strangers. EmPOWERment has never been more fun.

All participants should be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Masks are still required.

This class is for all cis and trans women, as well as non-binary people who are comfortable in a space that centers the experiences of women.

About the organizer

Strategic Living, LLC, has been helping women, girls, and boys discover their inner super-sheros since 2003.  We have taught self-defense to women from six to senior, from sorority sisters to grandmothers and business executives, homeless  women and those in transitional housing, and just about everyone in between. We have held classes for dorms and sororities, law firms, restaurant employees, manufacturing facilities, medical clinics, YMCA and YWCA groups, Angeline's Center (homeless women's day shelter), Opportunity Place and other transitional housing sites, the Veterans' Administration Medical Center, Providence Everett Medical Center, girl scout troops, book clubs, and groups of families and friends who wanted to be safer.
