We’re here to partner with you in your journey as you move from a beginner to trained and ready to face whatever comes with confidence and competence. And because we realize it takes more than a few classes to get the job done, we’re with you for the long haul, encouraging and spurring you on to higher and higher levels of strength and ability.
By investing a few hours each week, you’re going to take back your confidence, your authority, and your voice. And you’ll protect your loved ones, setting a standard that’ll follow you even after you’re gone.
We may think we sound fierce! But we sound like a lion cub squeaking out a baby roar. We need to learn and practice in a safe place so that when some nasty person comes at us, we’re already taking charge and using our voice appropriately.
Our self-defense classes train the low growl as a high-value technique in our toolkit. We start with a warning. If someone’s getting too close, you calmly, quietly, but firmly tell them to back off.
If we can look past the absurdity of what we’re doing and understand its importance,we can begin retraining our minds in ways we may not have believed possible. Retraining our minds for something better and more productive is difficult, but not impossible. Eventually it no longer feels so absurd. It begins to feel the like the right thing. It begins to feel like second nature. Honestly, it seems more absurd to do nothing and make ourselves vulnerable to a potential attack. Training to defend and protect ourselves is far more valuable as it keeps us safe from potential harm.
Using self-defense as a therapeutic tool is a surprising thing. You don’t expect emotional issues to come up while you’re learning to kick, punch, and do life saving techniques. But they do. It really seems inevitable. It’s hard to deny what’s happening. But if you’ve been harmed in some way, felt powerless, or been exposed to ongoing abuse, there is a very good chance you will find yourself confronted with the resulting pain and emotions.
