I really enjoyed your "no pressure" approach and it allowed me to actually try the techniques without feeling uncomfortable.
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.
The scenarios... all felt very real for me. As a survivor of intimate partner violence, I thought those situations were much more helpful than many of the stranger-rape cases in past self-defense classes I’ve taken.
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 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.
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 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.
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.
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 believe this seminar should be a requirement for every senior in high school! It would be an awesome investment.
