​​Personal Safety is an issue women think of often. Women have been conditioned to constantly assess her environment. But no matter how vigilant, one must be as prepared as possible. Knowledge is the best defense. Learning how to protect yourself with real and relevant fundamental training is essential. Distinctive instruction is available. Learn about keeping safe, understanding violence, and acquire defensive skills, regardless of ability, agility, or experience.

Self defense is not a skill set, it is far more significant than the physical fighting. it is a legal term and the physical is just a small portion of an overall whole. Exploring things like one’s own personal ethics, comprehending how and why violence happens, what you would be targeted for, along with practicing preventive skills, and knowing what to expect afterwards, are all a part of being as prepared as possible for a confrontation.

And if a physical violent encounter is unavoidable, Subtle Warrior teaches skills that are goal oriented and trained to reflex. In order to give the best chance of avoiding or overcoming an assault, one must realize the context of self defense.

"The best way to prepare for a situation is to have a plan. Remember, you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think"
