I am Strong, I am Capable …. and it Makes a Difference

Self-Defense Program Coordinator and Teacher

Are colleges doing enough to combat sexual assault? This was the topic of a recent City Club forum broadcast on OPB (Fri. March 27). Why would women argue against self-defense training as an important part of sexual assault prevention?



OWH Tip of the Week: Talking to your trainer

Always make sure to talk to your trainer if you have an injury. We won’t know that you have a problem unless you communicate with us. We don’t want to injure you more and we can always give you alternative exercises that won’t bother the injury.

My son came to me afterwards and said, “I have to have that music and I want to be able to do what she just did.” I walked out of One With Heart that night and have to admit, I had the exact same thought.
