NOT ME! (Defensive Safety Program for Young Ladies /Teens/ Women) Together we can stand and say, “NOT ME, NOT NOW, NOT TODAY! The “NOT ME! Defensive Safety Program,” is designed to make you more aware, prepared and ready for any situation that may occur on any given day. Most selfdefense classes start from the point of attack. This program differs, as I believe an attack actually begins before it becomes physical. The goal is to teach you how to recognize a threat, avoid the attack altogether and if avoidance is unobtainable, how to survive. You will learn more than self-defense and more than safety. The courses in this program are designed to be simple and non-technical. Many young ladies / women feel intimidated in taking such a course. The courses are engaging and enjoyable, not intimidating. I want you to feel welcome, safe and at ease. You will complete these courses being more confident, emboldened, and mentally stronger, feeling more in control of your own personal safety.

NOT ME! (Defensive Safety Program for Young Ladies /Teens/ Women) Together we can stand and say, “NOT ME, NOT NOW, NOT TODAY! The “NOT ME! Defensive Safety Program,” is designed to make you more aware, prepared and ready for any situation that may occur on any given day. Most selfdefense classes start from the point of attack.

The goal is to teach you how to recognize a threat, avoid the attack altogether and if avoidance is unobtainable, how to survive. You will learn more than self-defense and more than safety. The courses in this program are designed to be simple and non-technical. Many young ladies / women feel intimidated in taking such a course.
