My daughters truly enjoyed the class. They talked about it all the way home and have continued the conversation. I think it has opened up communication about safety and being able to protect ourselves in a way that isn’t scary or frightening, but instead is common sense. We highly recommend this program to all families of younger children.

I loved this class. I was cornered on a train platform earlier this year and had no idea what to do. It was terrifying!  If I had known about fighting back and shouting for help, it would have been a way different story. I was worried and freaking out about that when I went against the Blue Man because I am on the smaller side. I was amazed at how strong I was – it was thrilling to get away from him. I would have loved to have been able to do that on the train platform.

I realize that my kids are stronger than I thought. They both managed to escape the big Blue Man far quicker than I thought they would! Its hard as a parent to watch that attack role play but it was good for me to see they could handle themselves. The instructor packed a lot of great information into the two hours, and she was so much fun. My kids learned a ton today, I will be sharing this program with our school.
