Self Defense for Women
In this self-defense seminar for women you'll learn the most important lesson: that you have choices. In a single session you'll learn about real risks, assailant tricks, crucial targets and how to create an impact, and releases from the most common grabs. You will learn about how to recognize when someone is looking at you like a victim, and how to prevent attack -- but, if attacked, how to fight back and escape.

Joanne's expertise has been featured on KIRO Channel 7 TV, Q13's Washington's Most Wanted, KUOW 94.9 FM, and The Seattle Times Magazine.
