Ready to be empowered?

👋 Hey girlfend! I'm Lynne and I'm more than just a survivor!

At the age of 13 I was sexually assaulted and for years I blamed myself.

It's taken years to stop punishing myself.

Luckily I met Phil at university who became my self-defence and life partner teaching me Jiu-Jitsu.

This has given me the confidence to inspire others not to be a victim.

I can't wait to meet and teach these simple, fast and effective techniques that transformed my life.
