Empowered Strategies, LLC provides self-defense classes that teach simple and effective strategies to help anyone feel prepared and confident in uncomfortable or dangerous situations. Our format is empowering, supportive, and fun – and can be tailored for students of all experience levels. We specialize in women’s self-defense but can provide training and resources for a variety of groups. We work with small businesses, corporations, schools, not-for-profits, community groups, churches, and private groups.

We teach Empowerment Self-Defense (ESD) and Krav Maga techniques to provide a comprehensive strategy for increasing your safety. Our goal is to provide every student with options and choices for how to respond in any situation where they feel uncomfortable or threatened – from verbal harassment to physical assault. We help you feel empowered and have greater confidence instead of feeling fearful or vulnerable.
