How StreetWise Began
Not only am I the founder of STREETWISE, I am also a victim. I was attacked in September of 1991. I survived the attack because I fought back. I knew what to do.
Before my daughter left for college, I decided that she might benefit from self-defense training. She took private lessons, which were beneficial to her, and gave me peace of mind.
When she was home on spring break, we were discussing incidents that occurred on campus. It became very clear that many individuals lack awareness and often find themselves in unsafe and even threatening situations.
With that in mind, I designed a basic program geared toward individuals, 14 and older. I recruited a team of instructors with strong credentials in self-defense and martial arts training. I knew that this program needed to be both affordable, and convenient.
The result; STREETWISE, LLC was born.
