Workshops

Partial contact and full contact workshops available.

Self-Defense

I'll show you how to be your own best protector using both your voice and body! Self-defense training has been shown to increase confidence, conquer anxiety and reduce the risk of experiencing violence. In fact, empowerment self-defense education is one of the most effective violence prevention tools available.

Virtual

All of my speaking programs are available as interactive virtual presentations for access to groups anywhere in the world!

Self-defense is about claiming personal power and developing confidence in your own ability to protect yourself.

I'm the CEO of Girls Fight Back, the world-renowned personal safety and self-defense company, a certified self-defense instructor, and an award winning international speaker. Over the past 8 years, I have traveled the globe speaking to and training audiences of various demographics from diverse communities on topics of personal safety, awareness, intuition, violence prevention, sexual assault prevention, de-escalation, boundaries education and bystander intervention. My goal is to empower women and people of all gender identities, from teens to adults, with these life saving and empowering skills.

Let me help your group reclaim their voice and power!

I teach simple and practical safety techniques that are immediately useful for managing both your boundaries and personal safety. I want to help people of all genders, races, ages, sexual orientations and ability levels have the confidence to open up their world and feel self-reliant. My programs focus on empowerment and risk recognition, are backed by the latest peer reviewed research, and incorporate social-emotional learning techniques. There is no victim blaming or use of fear tactics! No one is ever at fault for violence that happens to them. Instead of giving you a list of "don'ts", items to carry, or restrictions on your activities, I will teach you strategies to help you live limitlessly and with more confidence!

Empowerment self-defense gives you a choice in how to respond to situations and recognize danger so you can decide what works best for you!

"I love that her skills are so simple, effective, and practical, and can be applied even if you don’t have a self defense background."

Whether you want to feel increased confidence while handling encounters on the street, on campus, on a run or hike, in the office, on your military installation, in your online meeting, while traveling, on a date, with friends, at church, during a night out, at home, on the road or on the trails, I can show you options for dealing with a range of situations in a safe and empowered way. You will walk away with immediately useful life-skills that are invaluable. You are worth fighting for!

“We were so excited to partner with Girls Fight Back to host a virtual self defense training session as part of our Empowerment Summit Digital Learning Series, which is a program geared towards high school students who identify as female. From start-to-finish the process was informative, collaborative and seamless. Nicole is an absolute rock star and made a virtual event fun, engaging and empowering for all who attended. As a result of the session, young women in our community are now more equipped with practical and empowering options for violence prevention and self-defense.”
