Classes: In Person & Online

Some poor phoneless fool is probably sitting
next to a waterfall somewhere totally unaware
of how angry and scared
he’s supposed to be.
– – Duncan Trussel

Here is the page from our website with a few videos on it https://earthmedicineinstitute.com/programs/boundaries-self-defense/

This work is full-force scenario-based high-adrenaline training in a safe and emotionally supportive environment. One of the many things that we do is train women to bypass their freeze response when in a potentially dangerous situation. In technical terms, we instill healthy responses into what is sometimes termed “Implicit Procedural Memory”… i.e. we essentially condition unconscious habits that can help people stay alive in dangerous situations.

The essence of this work is not “the man in the suit”; it is the andragogy, the teaching style that allows the conditioning to happen. Deep conditioned imprints, both positive and negative, can occur in high adrenaline states. Because we train women in these high adrenaline states, adrenaline becomes their friend rather than their enemy. In this situation, instead of it causing them to freeze, the adrenaline acts as fuel to help them to survive. In essence, it creates healthy, situation-specific responses that trigger simple powerful techniques and engage large muscle groups. Students rapidly develop the skill and confidence to navigate difficult situations where their life may be in danger.

However important the physical skills may be, most of the class is focused on how to avoid danger and, if needed, how to deescalate dangerous situations. The vast majority of assaults can be avoided with verbal responses alone. We spend a lot of time on body language, non-verbal cues, the dynamics of sexual assaults, and situational awareness as well as the legal issues in Hawaiʻi of needing to defend oneself in the home, at work, and in public.
