Protective Offense is the new mindset for modern women.
In studying our reactions to fear and adversity, we can tap into our deepest emotional
and physical reactions and learn to have more control over every aspect of our lives.
In a country where at least 1/4 of all women and girls are physically or sexually abused,
there has never been a better time to learn critical life skills to protect ourselves and our families.

Quote of the Month: “If you look to the animal kingdom you will find many a tiny animal scaring away or fighting off larger predators with Attitude and Determination. These are two things you will need in spades. The more of it you have, the more the other guy’s resolve will falter. And you want him busy second guessing his choice, because it will help take the wind out of his sails, turn the tables and give you the upper hand.” ~ Teja Van Wicklen
