Review for Impact Personal Safety, SoCal, Los Angeles, CA, USA
I recently took the Women's Basics class with a group of moms from my child's school. Classes such as this are so important, and in today’s climate, particularly relevant. We can now protect not only ourselves, but also our children. This knowledge and confidence alone allows us to navigate our lives and our environments in a much different manner. Because of this class, we are more aware of our surroundings, we can assess situations differently, we have verbal skills to diffuse situations, and if needed, we have the physical skills to protect ourselves. Can you imagine a world in which every woman and girl had that same confidence? We can, and it’s a magnificent vision—one where sayings like #metoo and #timesup are no longer necessary.
This was also the second time taking this class for me. I first took it about 9 or 10 years ago. I was so surprised and impressed at how much muscle memory I had. Taking the class the second time, I thought it would have all been forgotten over such a long span of time. I was glad to learn that it was all still there and readily accessible.
