Elemental is happy to announce that Grinnell College in Iowa and Edgewood College in Wisconsin have adopted the program for their campuses. Both schools are in the process of certifying instructors and hope to be offering 6 hour seminars and/or full semester classes beginning in the fall of 2018! We are so pleased to have you on board!
I really liked the "uh-oh" moment identifications because a lot of them I would have never thought of and it allows me to look out for them in real life situations.
First and foremost, I would like to congratulate you & your team on what a fantastic program Elemental is. I have been through several different types of programs, and I have to say that yours is one of the best I’ve attended.
Just wanted to let you know how awesome you are. You are making a huge difference! I think you are the only ones who get it.
I really enjoyed your "no pressure" approach and it allowed me to actually try the techniques without feeling uncomfortable.
I believe this seminar should be a requirement for every senior in high school! It would be an awesome investment.
I really liked that it was hands-on and that we had the opportunity to try all the moves you demonstrated. I loved testing the moves on the Creepers, because it gave me an idea of what it would be like in real life versus just seeing someone else do it or reading about the moves. The beds and couches were also a plus for me, because there is no other program that offers such realistic practice experiences. Additionally, you provided both verbal and physical solutions to all the problems which is a realistic approach. No two situations are alike, so it is best to know as many options as possible.
I have recommended the seminar to other because it helped me a lot with confidence in uncomfortable situations, and made me feel like I could defend myself if necessary.
I enjoyed the environment itself, which felt safe and free...It was so hands on, so as a visual and exploratory learner, I was able to retain the information so well because I had practiced the techniques and saw where I made mistakes and how to fix my form and execution. I also enjoyed how easy it became to speak so freely about such sensitive topics like sexual assault.
I think this is a great seminar and I would highly recommend it to anyone, especially freshmen girls. So often we expect that these assaults would never happen to us, so we find it lame to go and learn defense tactics. But assault is a very real and scary thing, and I now feel much more prepared if ever faced with a situation like this.
My daughter is signed up for an upcoming session. I just wanted to say that I think your program is a valuable service to the students!
