Be badass every day.

Empower yourself with the tools to keep you safe.

The word “Badass” is often associated with “being tough”, “intimidating”, and “uncompromising”.

  • If being tough means that I am confident in my skin regardless of my gender, size, age, and/or abilities- Tough I am!
  • If intimidating means that I am situationally aware of my surroundings and hold an imaginary sign over my head that says “picking me would be a bad idea”- Intimidating I am!
  • If uncompromising means refusing to deny my right to my personal space and my body- Uncompromising I am!

The Badass program, previously known as “Fight Back for Women”, is one of the only reality-based self-protection programs in Canada.

"Thanks! I enjoyed it. Changed my perspective because I always viewed self defence courses aimed at women as disempowering and fear mongering. The opposite here."
