Women Empowered Testimonial 2020
"I always thought that my size and strength were blocks in my ability to defend.
Was I was prepared to handle any situation in a fight?
An attacker follows four phases - Identify an unsuspecting target, subdue and isolate the target, control and exhaust the target, and carry out the assault.
What if at any of these points, I could not escape and get to safety?
When I was introduced to the Women Empowered program, all of these “what ifs” became “I cans”.
Not only that, but I've been able to apply these skills to my everyday life.
My favorite part is that I’m not overruled by fear anymore. I feel confident, excited and the people who come in our building leave with a smile and an eagerness to know more.
I’m so thankful to be a part of a community where the safety of everyone is a top priority.
