“I thought it was a great training. It has made me more mindful about my presence in the world. I’ve been practicing acknowledging people (men) when I’m by myself by making eye contact but not smiling at them. I used to feel like I had to smile to “be nice”. I’ve been conscious of my posture as well. Also just being aware of my surroundings. I haven’t actually thought about using any of the self defense methods other than remembering what they are.”
