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.
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!
I really enjoyed your "no pressure" approach and it allowed me to actually try the techniques without feeling uncomfortable.
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.
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 would recommend this seminar to others because I think it addresses many different angles of sexual assault and how to deal with them not only physically, but also verbally. Because it is more common for people to be assaulted by people they know, I think this program does a good job of addressing those types of problems and how to deal with them.
I also appreciated that we were given the opportunity to try things that we might actually experience in real life with the couches and the beds.
I liked how the different techniques weren't gender specific, and I liked how you could use each of the elemental moves to cater to your specific personality. It made the techniques more approachable. I loved the seminar, it was really empowering!
I believe this seminar should be a requirement for every senior in high school! It would be an awesome investment.
