SHARP - Self Defense Classes

Sexual Harassment And Rape Prevention is a unisex self-defense course that is founded on statistic-based research and focuses on what is real and what works.  By emphasizing the principal that less is best, SHARP material is kept simple so it is easy to learn, and more importantly, is easy to retain and use.  Focus is placed on identifying threatening behaviors and avoiding them while providing physical skills in case avoidance fails.
