Love Family

Signed up for a class for myself and my daughters. The class was both informative and empowering. Really enjoyed the instructors, they were professional and really encouraged the group of ladies in the class.

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.


Love the class! Super fun.

Took a womens self defense course with my younger sister and mom today and it was amazing. Left feeling more confident in protecting myself than I have ever before. 10/10 definitely recommend others take the course. It was a 2 hour course but we learned so much in such a short time. Wonderful!!

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.


This was really fun and I feel 10 times more confident 🙂


I think it was a fun way to learn how to defend myself and I feel better about protecting myself.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for teaching me in self-defense class on Saturday. I really enjoyed learning from you – you are so good at what you do and you make it so much fun! I love how you themed our class on empowerment.

What a great class to help my book club feel empowered and more confident. This same instructor has also written two books and is an integral part of the community

Girl Scout Leader

Our Girl Scout troop attended a self-defense personal safety class at Action Self Defense. The owner Ms. Reeve was great. She taught at the girls level and gave them plenty of opportunities to practice the skills they learned. They couldn't stop talking about it. The girls loved it!

Rebecca Hain

Diane was so wonderful! She was kind, welcoming, and I feel so much safer now. It was all about real life situations and deescalation, so it was super helpful!


Loved the class so much and learned so much and feel so much safer.
