Say About Action Self Defense?

Lilly K

Taught me that small and mighty can be better than big and stupid. I feel more prepared to go to college as a woman now.

Family Compass

Our staff had a blast yesterday learning some powerful self defense techniques with Diane at Action Self Defense. Given our focus on home mentoring and educating families personally in their homes we want to always promote safety for our staff and the families we serve.

Lisa Wacker Clawson

We had a private class in our home for six girls going off to college this fall. I can't recommend Diane enough. She covered some difficult and sensitive topics professionally, while not hiding the facts. Not only has she opened their eyes to living outside their suburban bubble, but she has given them the tools to potentially avoid being a target. But if they still become a target she also gave them the knowledge of how to survive. All six were much more confident and ready for College after their University Safety 101 session. And given the statistics, this class may have saved one of our six from becoming one of those statistics. Best investment in our daughters safety we will ever make.
