Jennifer Riis-Poulsen, a London native, is the Founder & CEO and also a 2nd degree black belt, who formed Powerhouse Self-Defense as a response to the ever-increasing statistics on the number of females attacked and assaulted, emotionally and physically, each year. She made reducing these statistics a passion and personal goal and has set out to develop a comprehensive, HOLISTIC personal safety and empowerment program focused on awareness and powerful techniques to build courage and confidence. The curriculum is based on her background in Psychology and her 14 years of martial arts experience. It is designed for individuals from 10 years of age upwards. The Powerhouse mission is to EDUCATE and EMPOWER everyone to live Safe, Healthy and Active Lives.

The Powerhouse Self-Defense Program was established in November of 2011, and is on its mission to empower and educate ALL girls and women across the globe. Of these women and girls served by Powerhouse, the Girl Scouts USA has consistently used the Powerhouse Self-Defense Program as their number one source for education on awareness and personal safety, building courage and confidence. Powerhouse Self-Defense takes a holistic approach to personal safety and empowerment by teaching EMOTIONAL, VERBAL and PHYSICAL self-defense techniques.
