Women Empowered Review

October 7, 2011

Erin W. recently participated in the Women Empowered seminar in Seattle, Washington. Here is what she had to say about it.

I've been practicing a mix of martial arts for about 2 years. Although I've been exposed to many self-defense techniques, this was the first time I had participated in a "self-defense class" specific to women. I have to admit, I wasn't sure what to expect. To my surprise, not only did I learn a few new skills and have fun doing it, the skills I did know were put into a context I had not associated them with before. Rener and Eve did an excellent job of breaking down each phase within a format that was unintimidating and easy to follow. I would definitely recommend this course to any woman, regardless of their age or background. The Women Empowered course helped me realize that self-defense isn't merely a set of physical techniques, it is a mindset that begins with the belief that you are worth defending. Thank you Rener and Eve!
