Thank you, Streetwise Women’s Self Defense! Jay kindly arranged to teach a class while he was coming through Boise to 11 of us, including 7 women and 4 of our daughters aged 15 and up. I had been wanting to take a self-defense class with my 19-year-old before she strikes out on her own, and Jay’s class was just what we’d hoped for. Jay was great about covering several topics around safety and self-defense, was great about listening and being open to conversations and questions that came up, and was great about making sure everyone was participating at a level that they felt safe and comfortable with. Jay was very professional, and we had a lot of fun as well while practicing movements and taking the class together. The topic of self-defense, Jay explained, can be difficult and triggering at times, and that is certainly true. We appreciated Jay’s professional, experienced, and kind tone throughout the entire course. My daughter came home with a little boost in confidence as well, which I so appreciated.
