Featured Testimonials

“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.”

“ I have to say that Nicole's class was AMAZING. I had the opportunity to moderate it yesterday and it was engaging, empowering, and impactful. I could sense a noticeable difference in the participants over the course of the hour. Nicole is SUCH A TRUE GIFT to this world - so thank you for giving us the opportunity to share her message with our community. I have never seen so many positive comments at the end of a presentation before - it was really incredible. So, again, thank you!”

"Every womxn should be taking this class… run, don’t walk, to sign up… The tools learned to better equip me for being alone outdoors were invaluable. There were so many AHA moments, the tools are so simple and accessible to all of us - I don’t have to remember a list of 20 things to do - but I CAN take control of an uncomfortable situation by listening to my intuition, using my voice and being assertive. I’d never even considered these as tools… The great thing about the tools we learned is that they can so easily be incorporated into our everyday lives, even off the trail. So here’s looking at many confident and empowered hours spent on and off the trail and if anyone comes looking for trouble… well, this girl is going to be ready to fight back.”

“I'm so happy that I got to take Nicole's "Yes I’m Hiking Solo: Self-Defense for the Outdoors" class. This class was everything I was looking for and more! Nicole gave us practical tools that I feel comfortable using if I ever feel unsafe, whether I'm out hiking solo or anywhere else for that matter.  She reminded me of my strength and my value all while showing me how to protect myself. She reminded me that I already have everything I need to keep myself safe and that was so reassuring! Nicole was a fantastic instructor - she was incredibly supportive, knowledgeable and passionate. She made me excited to learn more about self defense!”

“The program was awesome!  I am very satisfied with Nicole’s presentation – she was super engaging and hit on so many different topics related to self defense and awareness. I liked how she would ask questions and do little activities to encourage active participation. There was enough time for Q&A and she was willing to stay longer until all questions were asked, which was appreciated. I would 1000% recommend  her to colleagues!”
