SPECIAL COURSES AND ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR UPCOMING COURSES

Defense Midwest is developing a continuing training program designed to assist women who have been victimized in their lives. While this program is equally applicable to all women, it is specifically intended to address physical and psychological issues that may result as a consequence of a violent interpersonal attack. This will be a structured course of laddered training that will be offered on multiple occasions throughout the year to allow individuals to progress at their own pace and or to retake portions as needed. Please keep an eye out on our Lioness Program page for details. We are currently in construction of the curriculum and plan to unveil it in the coming weeks! This course's intent is to help women retake control of their lives, their bodies and their minds by allowing them individually to determine what they need and how far they want to go with the training. We believe so strongly that a program like this can make differences in our communities we are only charging $30 per 4-hour session and we are working on a partnership that might displace most of, if not all of that cost for women who can't afford it.
