In this empowering episode with Susan, we covered some new areas of keeping yourself safe. I asked Susan why she thinks we need to be empowered. Interesting answer.
Here's some interview highlights:
- Why you need to set boundaries that send a clear message and head off sexual harassment, sexual assault, tough challenges, unwanted flirtation or invasion of your space
- How you can set up situations properly to prevent arguing about your boundaries, rules, or standards
- Responding appropriately--and effectively--to intimidation
- How Susan found Akido a key to empowering herself and the girls she teaches
- Using language as self-defense to prevent an attack
And, she helps you understand how to create physical distance in threatening situations, too.
