The Total Confidence EMPOWERMENT programs teach you how to fight with a Women’s strongest tools!

We highlight the difference between self-defense courses for men and women.  When a man attacks a man, he either wants his money or his life.  When a man attacks a woman, he either wants her money, her life OR HER BODY.  The nature of the conflict is, by definition, hugely different. 

A woman brings her particular strengths to the conflict while minimizing the strengths of a man.  She should not attempt to fight directly into the “strengths” of the man who is attacking her.  That’s not silly or flawed reasoning; it is a smart strategy for any fighter.

This shift in thinking is what really sets the Total Confidence program apart.  But it did not originally start that way, it has evolved over the centuries and continues to be amended to adapt and overcome the real world attacks today.

Two main points which are imperative for a successful program are:

Make the technique work within the time frame of 30 minutes.
Remember the technique at the end of the  2 hour session; after 2 weeks or 2 years! 

We travel throughout the United States sharing our extensive knowledge while empowering hundreds of women!
