These free programs are suitable for women of all ages (13 and older) and abilities and are based upon the following ideas: Violent crimes are crimes of opportunity, and when you remove the element of opportunity, you reduce the risk of attack. Ninety percent of self-defense is mental preparedness and ten percent is physical.
