Zero spam. Promise.
I’ll go out on a limb and take a few guesses:
- You don’t like violence. (Neither do I.)
- Traditional self defense classes look scary and uncomfortable to you. (Yep, to me as well.)
- You could use a bit more badass energy in your life. (Don’t we all.)
For most women, the idea of taking a self defense class brings up resistance, and legitimate questions such as: Will I have to hit people? Am I fit enough to do this? Is this really going to help me stay safe?
Allow me to address what may be going through your mind, and point out a few things you may not know about self defense – yet:
You don’t need mega muscle to defend yourself.
No matter your size, age or fitness level, you can keep yourself safe. Self-defense is less about strength or speed, and more about awareness and leverage. You’ll learn how to use your unique build, what you wear, and items you carry with you every day, to get out of dangerous situations.
Flashy moves are for movies.
Complex techniques that require years to master? Even martial artists only practice those to hone their craft. The most effective self defense techniques are super simple, so you can actually remember and use them, even when your adrenaline is pumping. That’s what you’ll learn here.
You can repel trouble with a badass mindset.
When you feel and act like the badass you already are, trouble tends to stay away from you. You can avoid many iffy situations simply by turning off victim mode and activating your inner badass. I’ll show you how to do that.
Self defense is not just for when you’re mugged in a dark alley.
Have you ever wondered how to handle that guy who puts his arm around you at a party without your permission, or the co-worker who likes standing too close to you? Even if you want to be polite, there are better options than simply enduring unwanted advances. You will leave this workshop armed with elegant ways to maintain your personal space.
It’s not about fighting.
It’s about avoiding a fight and, if a fight should start, ending it quickly and with the least amount of damage possible. For the record: I don't like to fight ...

What other gentle badasses are saying about working with me ...
(Names have been omitted to protect my clients' privacy.)
I left the session already feeling more confident and empowered.
Lisa sensibly and thoughtfully takes you through a series of simple, effective strategies for becoming an empowered and kind Badass.
I loved that it combined both the mental and physical aspects of dealing with conflict.
Lisa calls upon her experience in Kenpo Karate (as a first-degree black belt!) and as a 500-hour Registered Yoga Teacher to teach you the biomechanics of maintaining your personal authenticity. The physical dynamics of how to hold yourself to silently telegraph to others that you stand in your own power.
I was surprised to recognize how many possible solutions there could be to resolving a difficult or awkward situation, whereas before I only saw one or two possibilities with less than ideal outcomes.
I find I am calmer and more centered, and less apt to get riled by people or things that previously set me off. I highly recommend Badass Base Camp to anyone whose struggles with being assertive lead to bouts of belligerent anger or fearful retreat, as well as to anyone who merely wants to establish a more powerful presence without becoming antagonistic or hostile.
I was reminded how much of a practice it is to speak and move with confidence and grace, how it might not always feel natural but I can keep getting better at it, and how many avenues there are without being an aggressive bully, a scorned cynic, or a passive pushover.
Thank you for reading all the way to the end!
I look forward to helping you activate your inner badass.
