Select your workshops or take them all!

You’ll learn from the best: our trainers are experts in trauma-informed education, Empowerment Self Defense, Violence Prevention, and De-Colonialization and our programs are Culturally relevant. They’ll show you how to:

  • Identify and avoid potential threats
  • Set and enforce your personal boundaries
  • De-Escalate potentially dangerous situations
  • How to use ESD principles in your everyday life

Whether you come in for self-care, to bond with friends or family, or to answer your self-defense questions and concerns, it will be a night you never forget.

Our goals are simple:

  • Recreate the levels of stress you would experience during an attack of any kind,
  • Do so in a controlled and safe environment, and

Empower You to Live Freely!

This is not a Martial Arts Program! It has a completely different focus and is geared toward the whole family! ASSERT Empowerment Self Defense Courses are centered on the development of the Mind-Set in order to employ the Skill-Set.

Register Early. Space is limited and pre-registration is required! So don’t miss out!
