Strategic Living

One Day Seminars

If you have only a few hours to spare, spend it here. You'll learn the most important lesson: that you have choices. In a single session you'll learn about real risks, assailant tricks, crucial targets and how to create an impact, and releases from the most common grabs. You will learn about recognizing and dealing with manipulations and ploys used by people you may know (including in domestic violence) as well as complete strangers. EmPOWERment has never been more fun.

"Great class that not only taught basic physical defense, but also how to recognize people/situations that may lead to assault."

"Excellent mix of class discussion and hands on work. Joanne is a wealth of knowledge on the subject and her practical style was perfect for the subject."
