    Learning the moves with a partner is the best way to learn how to execute them reflexively, especially when you have to react quickly. However, if you don't have anyone to practice with, it's still valuable to simply watch the lessons, so you can at least mentally learn the techniques in case you're ever attacked.

    Great video, and very educational. However, the only thing i noticed was Rener and Eve kept referring to the supposed assailant as "he" instead of he or she. Obviously sexual assaults against males, are in the minority of cases, Yet they do occur. "He or she" would of been better phrased. Thanks.

    I love that you invited your sister & female student to demo…I'm not a large woman and always felt that Jujitsu was out of my physical range. When I watch your videos, I feel more empowered…. I look forward to learning more. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this safety information.

    @ValkyereHowie The course is VERY detailed. I had the priviledge to watch the course in person when my g/f and sister attended it at the Gracie Academy in Torrance, CA. Unlike other women self defense courses, the Women Empowered course does not rely on stirkes that have the potential to miss the target and it sure does not rely on power and strength. Anybody of any size can perform the techniques!

    It's very interesting here, I find that the "Stranger" attacker likes you to fight back, from what I've gathered so far. While the "Known" attacker uses the path off least resistance. He doesn't seem to "get off" on the physical control, but more the mental.

    But when the barriers laid down are crossed the known attacker should be treated just like the stranger, with the techs. you've learned.

    The Verbal Jiu Jitsu here is clutch. I loved it in Bulley proof, but here, it's even more imp.
