Don't just say you can take care of yourself,
know you can!
You know how as women, many of us live with the fear of violence against us or our children and don’t know what to do about it?
Well, I teach Women and Moms how to be their own bodyguards by borrowing skills and strategies employed by law enforcement, the military and protection industry experts, to demystify the way criminals choose their victims and the way crime evolves, so women can empower themselves and their families to live safer, smarter, stronger.
...And I make it fun!
Women's self defense has been virtually unchanged
for decades, if not centuries...
JOIN US! and revel in the chess game of life, dismantle fear, use emotions wisely, see conflict as opportunity, raise informed, resilient children who won’t become victims or criminals and... even if it comes to the worst, know you can beat innumerable odds and come out on top!

My name is Teja. I’m a 30-year veteran martial artist with a background in edged weapons, firearms and wilderness survival. I've studied martial disciplines from many cultures over the years. I have been a personal trainer and a certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). I am also the ADHD Mom of an ADHD son.
I've been featured in magazines like Madmoiselle and Black Belt and interviewed on Television for ESPN, Nancy Grace, Good Day New York and Veria Living. I once leaped on a melon in a grocery store for a South West Air Super Bowl commercial.
For more than five years, I managed a martial arts production company that created and performed over one hundred staged stunt performances for major events, movie premieres, pharmaceutical conferences and film festivals worldwide. I’ve been involved in many areas of martial arts from stunt performance and choreography, to high-level training with elite military personnel. I’ve engaged in a number of training exercises I don’t necessarily recommend others try and had experiences I might have been happier (though not necessarily smarter) without - facing down live darts, fighting through pepper spray, feeling the full-body jolt of a Taser, but none of it kicked my ass the way motherhood did.
After months of nausea and sleep deprivation, a third trimester hernia surgery, a blood-born strep infection and post-partum depression, I surfaced in my new role as a mom. My injury and illness made me vulnerable and caused me to rethink everything I had learned about martial arts, self-defense and fighting. When had I ever trained with a baby attached to me or while pushing a stroller? How would kicking, punching or grappling even work with a kid in the mix? What were the survival answers to those disturbing scenarios and why had they never come up in thirty years of training?
I’ve been working those particular questions for more than ten years now. My quest is to find the place where self defense meets common sense, where self and situational awareness, strategy and high-speed problem solving coincide; to create a paradigm of empowerment for women who want to revel in the chess game of life, dismantle fear, use emotions wisely, see conflict as opportunity, raise productive, resilient children who won’t become victims or criminals, and who, even if it comes to the worst, can beat innumerable odds and come out on top.
GO! (Get Offensive) is for you if you want to become the hero of your family and of your own story.

Thanks Teja!"
