I had the fun privilege of working with high school women last week at Crenshaw High School in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, statistics indicate that 1 in 4 women from high school to college age will experience a sexual assault. Annia Forte, a dedicated student at the Gracie Academy and teacher at Crenshaw High School, helped us bring the Women Empowered self-defense program to the school, free of charge for the school. It was a fun evening, the girls learned a ton, and everyone had a great time! Thanks to our Gracie Academy students and assistant instructors who dedicated their time to helping these young women learn some self-defense and boundary setting principles. Our hope is that we can bring this to the school, and many others, as an after school program!
