Pre-Conference Self-Defense Workshop: “Let No One Confuse Your Kindness as Weakness”

Are you longing for a simple safety message that cuts through the non-sense of complicated self-defense tactics and fear-based safety tips? Are you ready to replace nagging “worry” with absolute certainty that if challenged, you and your family members (in your absence) know exactly how to save yourselves - even if an attacker is intoxicated/drugged and armed?

Rooted in the Power of ‘L’ove, learn (and engage in optional, light practice) an explicit 3-word Safety Plan that rapidly teaches:

  • Inner-Fear Control (for surviving any crisis, not just crime)
  • Clever Crime Prevention (size-up & stop trouble fast—be a step ahead)
  • One Sentence Self-Defense Law (know exactly WHEN you can strike)
  • One best place to strike (regardless of your age, strength, size, etc.)
  • One additional response (to survive attacker ARMED with gun or knife)
  • Exact legal justification phrase (to state to recorded 9-1-1 operator)
  • Use of everyday items as effective defense weapons (you already own)
