What Is Empowerment Self-Defense?

Living Without Fear

Empowerment Self-Defense gives us the power to choose how to respond to violence, without judgment or victim blaming. It empowers us to be in command of our minds, body and spirit. It teaches us that we are allowed to live our lives boldly and freely without fear.

Personal Safety

Every person has the right to learn how to defend themselves. Systems of violence are complex, so this requires more than just physical techniques.

Empowerment Self-Defense is a holistic approach to personal safety which teaches tools to combat the whole spectrum of violence, from verbal harassment to physical violence.

Evidence-Based

ESD is an evidenced-based violence prevention system. It teaches individuals how to interrupt violence by listening to their intuition, assessing their options, asserting boundaries, using de-escalation strategies, and deploying tools for a range of mental, verbal and physical responses.
