“Known Men or Criminals don’t follow rules of Martial Arts, nor allow you to execute self-defense tricks or spare you afterwards.”

Lack of knowledge of why crime on women happens makes us desperate to cling to solution of Women Self-Defense / Martial Arts Tricks. My methodology is ‘Start with the Crime, Study the Criminal Psychology’ then expose the raw reality of Why, Who & What makes Crime, Harassment & Sexual Abuse on women.

  • Violent Unknown Attackers – Ninja Kubtaon Pressure Points & Krav Maga Israeli Military Self Defense.
  • Deceptive Known Attackers – Educate & Empower the women to help Avoid, Prevent, Diffuse & Escape.

With a stranger or serious crime, use a gun, knife or Krav Maga Israeli Self Defense! With 94% known attackers, blind use of Women Self Defense (punch & kick) will just invokes more violence & even after the incident, she still has to deal with same or different issues from the same office, house, locality & city. This is a social problem & by acknowledging the seriousness of the issue, we can start working on it’s solution.

Call Frank @ 9886769281 for men, child or women safety & psychological empowerment workshops in school, college or corporate.

One of the biggest regret some rape or sexual abuse victims have is – if someone had told them the truth about crime, violence & sexual abuse, and got them prepared – maybe to help prevent, avoid & escape before threat become real.

Leaving a secure respectable Creative Director job for being a social entrepreneur is still tough on my family.

  • I am glad Franklin Joseph uses his years of experience working for children and women from the NGO world as the base of the workshop and constantly learns how not to be a man or a martial artist in his sessions.

  • Instead of being a pepper spray wielding insecure girl, after Power to Women workshop, I have emerged more alert, better informed, prepared to walk the street, relying more on myself being a women instead of a man.

    Anusha Suresh

    Participant in Power to Women Workshop

No matter how the media reports, it’s not men against women! Global change on women safety can only start from within ourselves – the greatest enemy is within us – our mind not willing to change from older mentality to new one.
