As a martial artist and self defense instructor, I have long been driven to equip others with the knowledge and tools to evade violence and when necessary, fight back against it. Above all, I want to help my fellow humankind – especially woman+kind – to understand and believe in their own inalienable rights to be safe, secure, and in control of their own bodies.
Self defense is as much psychological as it is physical. Any training that doesn’t address both doesn’t offer the full picture or preparation. As a smaller woman who has faced such threats and lessons herself, I’m all the more passionate and prepared to make sure no one else has to suffer the same.
