I completed the online course because I travel solo all around the world and have found myself in places or situations where I feel vulnerable to my environment.

I consider myself confident and capable but at times you become hyper aware of your surroundings and I was left feeling especially insecure after being robbed while travelling.

The course has been an awesome tool to help me develop a mental checklist that I now use for managing my presence in all new situations as I travel. I now feel so much more in control and prepared for arriving in new places and handling myself. With that, I worry a whole lot less and am able to really enjoy myself without feeling intimidated.

Tina’s Girls Kick Ass course made me feel more comfortable and confident traveling on my own and thanks to her step-by-step advice and instructions, I have the tools to be aware of my surroundings, make smarter decisions and recognize when something doesn’t feel right.

This course is a must for women who thrive on independence and adventure and want the peace of mind of being able to protect themselves in dangerous situations!

Girls Kick Ass really helped me becoming more aware: Aware of myself and my own body as well as aware of the surroundings!

It changed my whole mindset and raised my self-confidence. I want to learn more about it and already recommended the course to all the women in my family and my girlfriends, specially to my sister who will definitely benefit from it, I’m sure about it.

It will be fun to go through the course again with them.

After a period of ignoring my real feelings; I realized emotional and physical abuse by my ex was influencing me more than I expected. When a friend told me about Girls Kick Ass, it made perfectly sense to me this was going to help me, because of the abuse I had lost self-esteem and didn’t feel safe anymore.

My ex had broken into my house on several occasions, waited hours in front of my house and checked my phone regularly without asking. Although all the things he did, I couldn’t get angry with him. I always stayed calm and asked him kindly to leave. I am a person that stays away from fights and walk away from situations before escalating.

Only one night it went different. My ex pushed me to the floor and hit me several times in my face and tried to choke me.  That night was an emotional rollercoaster. I had never thought that someone ever would hit me. My face was full of blood and one of my eyes got more colours than a rainbow counts. It was there and then I decided something like that would never happen again to me.

It took me 2 months to finally open the Girls Kick Ass course. I didn’t want to pity myself and said that I would be ok again. If you read this and you can resonate with it; don’t wait. Girls Kick Ass gave me technics that makes me feel stronger. It gave me the right skills of self-defence and confidence to know that in the future I am well prepared.

Craig Ma’Har gives this course. He explains that self-defence are technics to get out of physical situations, not to fight back. The course is easy to follow and the short instruction videos make it understandable. I did the course alone, but it is a great thing to do with friends. As you can practise the technics directly.

I travel to many places around the world and I feel a lot saver now. I got my self-confidence back and know better how to set boundaries.
