OUR PHILOSOPHY - OUR THINKING

We started this program as a service to women, based on our understanding that women move differently through public space and are often less able to experience freedom and self-expression without fear for their safety. We believe that women are fully capable of self-defense and equally deserving of all life has to offer. The ignorance and stupidity of some should not be allowed to prevent women from realizing their full potential or from feeling safe in private or public spaces! 


It is our sincere belief that women should experience true equality with men. We are tired of seeing the negative impact that fear, threat of harm and constant vigilance have on women. Our mothers, sisters, daughters and friends deserve gender balanced environments. Enough is enough! We have seen too many women abused physically, emotionally and sexually! The insanity needs to end now and it can if women get the proper training!
