Testimonials

After this class, I feel more aware, more prepared and more empowered to defend myself, if the situation arises. Thank you!

I have never taken a self-defense class so I really learned a lot and feel much less of a victim. With practice I feel confident that I could use one move to take down the attacker. The workshop was upbeat with lots of laughter, which made the class fun!

The workshop was totally awesome! Prior to taking this class I often wondered how I would respond to being attacked. My husband scared me a month ago and all I did was scream. My confidence level rose after the class. I was so impressed with the real life scenarios. I truly feel that I have learned life skills that would help me in a horrible situation. Great Instructor! Thank you!

I definitely feel empowered. I think I will continue to practice because I do worry that I would freeze and not react in an effective manner.

I feel beyond empowered after this training. So many of the moves are second nature after you learn the techniques. You leave smarter and stronger with a better chance of survival in any attack situation. Simply amazing!”

Well worth the time. Great workshop.

When I did not yell loud enough, you would make me say “NO!” again and again until it was coming from my core and loud enough to scare someone. You taught me to stand up for myself and to not become a victim. I cannot begin to tell you how confident this has made me feel.

I highly recommend to EVERY woman of all ages to take the Powerhouse Self Defense Program to protect yourself. You will build physical and emotional empowerment. You will feel strong. You will be more self confident. You will be safer. You’ll be happy you did!

I had such a great experience with Jennifer from Powerhouse Self-Defense. I learned so many ways to protect myself. I also relearned things that are always great to have refreshers on. Even though the class went by really fast, I know I have the confidence to use any of the skills and methods we learned about. I came out of the class learning way more than I had expected and I am very glad I decided to go. You learn so many valuable skills such as how to carry yourself when you walk to how to protect yourself when you feel unsafe. I would highly recommend EVERY young girl take this class on self-defense

I attended a self defense class hosted by Powerhouse Self Defense and it was awesome! I had the amazing opportunity to not only to learn how to defend myself in any tricky situation but I got to do it with my Kappa Delta sisters. Learning different ways to protect and potentially save myself, in a situation that we don't think would ever happen to us, was eye opening. I learned how to be super observant at all times and how powerful my body can really be. I am thankful my sisters were there with me because it was fun to experience it with them as well as I know that they are also trained to protect themselves. And knowing that is reassuring. Self defense is an important thing that should not be taken lightly and with more and more people learning how to protect themselves, I'd like to think that even more will want to learn how to defend themselves and soon everyone will know how! Thanks for everything Powerhouse Self Defense.

I really have been wanting to take a self-protection class for a while now. The world is a changing place and sadly there are mean people in it. Women are taken advantage of everyday and I can proudly say that I now will not fall victim to that. Through the Powerhouse course I learned great techniques to ward off any kind of attacker in any given situation. I feel empowered and urge anyone and everyone to take a course in order to better themselves and lead to a brighter tomorrow. Thank you so much for coming. What you taught Kappa Delta sorority will protect my sisters and myself, and for that I say thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Jennifer with Powerhouse Self Defense really puts the safety of young college students before herself. She made a two hour drive by herself just to give our sorority self defense pointers for about an hour an a half. Although it wasn't her usual four hour class, I feel as if I got so much out of the lesson. Jennifer was so kind and patient with us and I could tell she was truly passionate about what she does. Her sense of humor and ability to relate to the crowd definitely made me feel comfortable trying the new moves she was teaching us. I learned simple yet extremely helpful defense tactics through her class that I'm so thankful to now know. She not only taught us how to defend ourselves physically, but she stressed the importance of observing your surroundings at all times, and exuding confidence with your walk, voice and actions. Jennifer's passion and ability to teach made me want to take even more self defense classes. I want to be as confident in my abilities and prepared as possible because we never know what could happen. I would definitely recommend taking a self defense class from Powerhouse Self Defense. It's mission to make college campus' safer and to instill self confidence in young girls like the Girl Scouts of USA is unmatchable.

The self defense empowerment program was such an eye opener! Whenever I used to think about knowing self defense, I figured it was something that I would never be able to do or that I would never need it. I understand now that if I were put in a situation with an attacker, I am not helpless. The program was interactive and allowed anyone to participate- even if you're like me and you don't have the biggest muscles. We got to practice in groups, where we took turns being the attacker and the victim. My group had so much fun with this part of the program because we got to encourage each other. It was nonetheless a confident driven, empowering program and I would definitely be interested in taking it again. I had such a great time with my sisters and I'm so glad that, because of this class, we now have the chance to change the outcome of a possible attack!

Jennifer did an amazing job with the Powerhouse self-defense workshop for Kappa Delta. I had never done any kind of self-defense class before and I really learned a lot of useful techniques. I now feel a lot more confident about being able to take care of myself and it was a lot of fun too. The workshop was really a great experience and I would definitely recommend it.

I recently took a PowerHouse Self-Defense class and it was incredible! The instructor was so great and she really emphasized on avoiding the issue in the first place but then went over proper technique if you are ever in an actual dispute. We were taught what each letter in PowerHouse stands for and then we progressed into hand-to-hand defense. We got to break up into groups and practice both with other people as well as with the pads. It was a blast and by the end of it not only did I know what to do and feel more confident but I was also sweating because I got into it simply because it was fun. I would definitely recommend this class for anyone it really teaches you more than just what to do when someone is attacking you.

Jennifer and the Powerhouse Self Defense workshop gave me the confidence and knowledge I need in order to be able to protect myself if an unexpected situation were to occur. This fun, fast-paced, and interactive session provided me not only with the physical skills I can use to defend myself, but also the emotional and mental resources to prevent an attack from occurring in the first place. I would recommend this program to all women!

I am so glad I took the Powerhouse self defense class. The instructor was extremely energetic, and great at placing the techniques in the everyday situations college girls are faced with. I feel safer with just the knowledge that I am able to defend myself. The class was a fantastic opportunity, and I would highly recommend it to any woman.

I really enjoyed the self-defense class I took with my Kappa Delta sisters! The woman that taught it, Ms. Jennifer was a great teacher and made it fun for us. The class was a perfect way to empower us as women and was a good reminder that the world can be scary place if we are not prepared. Not only did we learn moves for self-defense but it also taught us to use our voices and to be alert at all times. It was very easy to pick on the techniques and even if you do not remember everything, knowing something is always better than knowing nothing at all. This class should be something that every woman takes and I would recommend it to every college as they attempt to make their campus as safe as possible for all their students especially their female students.

As the President of Kappa Delta Sorority at Georgia College, I am so thankful that Jennifer visited our campus and taught the class for my sisters. Partaking in this self-defense class is one of the best decisions I have ever made! The easy to remember acronyms taught during the class helped me greatly to retaining this important information. I felt as though the energetic moves shown were appropriate and effective. I feel empowered after learning the necessary steps to protect myself from any attack. Every person really needs this basic but profound knowledge of protection. One never knows when a situation might occur, especially on a college campus! I definitely feel confident in my self-defense moves and am more aware of my surroundings now too! My sisters and I had so much fun and encouraged each other to just say “NO!” It makes me more confident in the safety of our chapter, knowing that these women are equipped with sound techniques to protect themselves. Our first class was so successful that I plan on having one every semester for the girls! In fact, I was so impressed with the quality of the program that I submitted my resume, hoping to work with their dedicated team as an intern and got the job! I will be working as the Powerhouse Media Specialist in London during the International Scouting Event - WINGS 2014 - during the summer!

My teenage daughters and I took a course with Jennifer last year, and it was very empowering. I had never learned any of these techniques, and was so glad that my girls were learning how to not become victims. This summer, my daughters took part in Jennifer's course for college women. It is wonderful to see them become empowered. They have told me that before learning self-defense techniques with Jennifer that they had never thought about what they would do if someone attempted to assault them. Now, they have strategies they can call on if ever necessary. That alone is empowering! Jennifer is very personable, knowledgeable and fun, as well as tough as nails!! We love her!

Powerhouse Self Defense is a great place to learn about how to stay aware and remove yourself from dangerous situations. Knowing that you don't have to be in tip-top shape and the average woman can learn and successfully use these moves made me feel better and more confident with myself. I am now more aware of my surroundings, constantly paying attention, and not giving attackers a chance to see me as "bait". I encourage anyone who knows about Powerhouse but hasn't signed up for a class to SIGN UP! You definitely won't regret it. These are life-saving skills that can not only help you, but help others!

After attending this class I feel great. I'm always on the look out and watching for signs. I feel powered in myself. Taking this class I promise that you will feel safer. And its not just physical the emotional part is what really got me. Speaking from the core "back-off" really works.
