I am SO EXCITED for you to have the opportunity to learn effective skills for preventing and escaping from attacks from our talented trainer, Amanda Golert, who was also one of my own self-defense instructors long ago.

I think you will enjoy Amanda’s engaging and practical style in the new Fullpower Self-Defense Skills video course she has created for our Online Learning Center.

Designed for adults and teens, the course includes 25 short video lessons that make it easy and fun to learn the skills from the comfort of your own home and at your own pace.

Each three-minute lesson includes partner practices so you can see clearly how the skill works in protecting yourself from an attack.

Your course enrollment includes a downloadable personal copy of our book, One Strong Move, with cartoon-illustrated self-defense lessons for your own learning and for teaching others.

As another option, if you want to take a live, online course with an experienced instructor, you can register for our Live Online Teenpower/Fullpower Self-Defense Workshop, which is scheduled on April 21 – and we will give you access to Amanda’s self-paced video lessons at no additional charge.

For both the live online workshop and the self-paced video lessons, scholarship support is available. Please contact us if you need financial assistance. We ask that people pay what they can, AND, we do not want lack of money to stop you or your loved ones from learning these potentially life-saving skills.

I hope these programs will help you and your loved ones gain knowledge and skills for taking charge of your safety. Please let us know if there are other ways we can help – and please share this blog with people who you think might be interested.
