Question: Is this class just for “young” or “in-shape” women?
Answer: Absolutely not. Women of all ages and physical ability can attend this class and benefit greatly. If you feel that you have old or current injuries/ailments we do adjust to each woman’s situation. We have had ages from 18-65 attending our program.
Question: Why can’t I attend the class if I am under 18?
Answer: AWARE ND is based on real life. Scenarios are enacted from situations that occur to women such as rape, attack, and face to face confrontation. Due to the intense scenarios and language we feel it is in the best interest for all women attending to be at least 18 years of age.
We realize there is a desperate need to teach younger women and girls safety and self defense, however, this program has been initially designed for adults. Our hope for the future of AWARE ND is to create a program for kids and young women under 18.
Question: Why is the class so expensive?
Answer: We understand that the cost of the class is expensive, but we want to be transparent in letting you know that 100% of the money goes toward renting the training space and purchasing equipment.
Some of our graduates can attest that you can’t put a price on having the tools that will save your life.
