Number one most important thing I want people to walk away with from my classes is to feel safer walking around the world. I want them feel that they’ve learned something so they can walk without fear.
If somebody can be put in a situation in my class where they feel uncomfortable and they fight out of it, they come out of it with something extra, something that makes them stronger. That’s what I want to give to everyone at every level, to walk out of the classroom feeling like I control my body, I control my environment, I’m a little bit safer than I was before I walked in.
