In addition we'll give you tools, facts, and insight that will better enable you to survive whatever the world may throw at you tomorrow, such as:
• Introduction to New York State Self Defense Law as it applies to violent situations
• How to recognize suspicious behavior
• How to act and what to do once you realize the person you're with has plans that don't include your consent
• How sexually motivated attackers think
• What do they look for when they are "hunting"?
• What makes them continue an attack?
• What makes an attacker stop their attack?
• And much much more!

EVERY woman needs to have this training! Grab your friends and family and come down for a girls night out!
