Fairfax County Law Enforcement Foundation
November 20, 2012

I found out about this foundation from going on the Fairfax County website. I saw that they offered Self Defense classes for women, so I signed myself and my mom up. Although she had a bad arm, the volunteers worked with her to help her learn the techniques while keeping her from getting hurt. I feel a lot more confident in my ability to protect myself and I cannot believe the class was free. I saw many mothers and daughters there and the commitment the volunteers have towards empowering us is evident. I have told my friends about the class because we will all be leaving home soon and it is nice to know how to protect ourselves. The class also teaches ways to prevent the worst scenarios and my mom and I use these tips daily such as not walking too close to the side of a car at night. This non-profit is doing a great service to individuals like me. It truly was a life-changing experience and I recommend the class to any woman of any age. This class does not discriminate.
