Discover Your Power and Show it to the World

* Explore and express your personal boundaries,
* Learn effective, easy to train and use safety techniques,
* Face stressful situations successfully,
* Plan ahead for them, and
* Maintain your composure and clear thinking even under the effects of Adrenaline.

Space is Limited so Register Early!


There are only 10 spots available, so act fast.

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!
