A bit about the One Light Self -Defense Team:
The One Light self-defense team has traveled to the poorest slums in Nairobi, Kenya, where girls face physical attacks EVERYDAY. Using simple self-defense techniques, girls and community leaders have been empowered physically, mentally, and emotionally.
An awareness of existing and growing physical violence compelled the team to offer self-defense workshops in the U.S. Since 2009, school staff, students, realtors, corporations, women’s groups, churches, and families have seized the opportunity to prepare themselves for a world that faces bullying, domestic violence, molestation, rape, and human trafficking.
