Success stories

"I grew up in a home that taught me to fear everything, everyone. All my self-defense skills have come from fear. Here I got to learn the skills from a place of empowerment."

Age 42

"I am in a WhatsApp group for a course. Someone started making jokey comments with a nasty undertone about a guy in our course who isn’t in the group. I posted that it’s not appropriate to make comments about any course member in the WhatsApp group. People apologized and lots posted they too had felt uncomfortable. Feels good to be an upstander and not a bystander."

Age 18

"I was sitting on a bus and there was a man staring at me the whole ride. When I got off the bus, the man got off too. He grabbed me and wrapped his arms around my head. I elbowed him and he fell. I ran away."
