instructors were with victims. The staff was fun and inspiring!”

- Beatrice

“The hands on practice really helped me feel prepared!”

- Heather D.


"I took my first S.A.F.E. course in preparation for a trip out of the country. S.A.F.E put me at ease, while teaching me to be aware. I found that the lessons and techniques I learned are just as applicable when walking through my college campus as they were to wondering through the medina of a foreign country."

- Carole M.


"I've tried several self defense programs, including RADS (Rape Aggression Defense System). I was very dissapointed when the moves from other courses could still be easily defeated when I practiced with my lanky boyfriend or older sister. As a petite female, techniques that work with little strength are imperative for me. SAFE is the only self defense program I've studied that, when done right, because of the leverage and points of attack used, my partner can NOT muscle out of the moves."

- Carolyn F.

“My overall experience of the SAFE class today?  AWESOME!”

- Gloria


“It was good to practice the technique with the guy in the suit. I have been attacked in the past and it replicated my experience and I was able to face my fear”

– Heather G.


“I think this class is very important, and it was a lot of fun!”

- Lila


“The SAFE program is awesome and very educational!”

- Lexi


“The class taught me how to be more aware of my surroundings.”

- Trisha


"When I took my first S.A.F.E course at American Black Belt Academy, I was hooked. The information, instructors, and environment were outstanding. I can hold my head high when I walk down the street because S.A.F.E gave me the tools to know how to defend myself. I definitely recommend any lady to try it out, it is worth the time to check out the course."

- Megan B.


"Throughout the course, I became more comfortable with myself, started walking taller because I knew I wasn’t going to be just another tragic statistic and made friendships to last. This place did far more for me than just teaching me self-defense moves, and I am honored to be a part of American Black Belt Academy."

- Evette T.


“I want to say thank you to all of the SAFE staff! I’m really glad you’re teaching these important skills!”

- Hazel
