Awareness, recognition, and avoidance are major focus points of Escape Alive. But when there is no option you need to know what to do and how!
We are always looking for new locations and new opportunities to spread the Escape Alive Women’s Self Defense program. If you are interested in organizing a class in your area we can work with you...

"If you want to learn Self-Defense, this is the company to go to!"
-Claire Bullock, via Face Book
“This was the best class I ever went to, I feel empowered. I wish I had taken my daughters. Great Job!”
-Ann Cianciolo, Escape Alive participant, Wilby HS, CT
"Nothing is more precious in this World -- than the life of our loved ones, especially our children. Do something for your children and take the Escape Alive class so that YOU CAN protect yourself. The harsh reality is that an attack CAN happen to anyone and each of us must be responsible to prepare ourselves. I did it for my children so that I can be here for them!"
-Nora Mason, Escape Alive Participant, CT
"This class not only taught me many great ways to escape from a dangerous situation, but also how to avoid those situations all together by being aware of my surroundings. I have also brought my 18 year old daughter with me to a couple classes. I worry just a little bit less knowing that she has some really great self defense tools to carry with her everywhere she goes."
-Sandy Kearney, Multiple Escape Alive participant, CT
"I attended the Escape Alive/Jane Doe No More session in Thomaston. I have urged all of my female friends and family to take at least one of these courses a year. I intend to make it at least an annual class for myself. The class was well run. The women that shared their stories made the class all that more realistic. I especially wanted to say thank you to them.
-Carol Grosso, Escape Alive participant, CT
I am very excited to have experienced this program and am looking forward to taking the class again and again. I think twice a year will work for me, keeping me in tune with the World around me and feeling powerful enough to avoid or escape from a threat that may come along."
-Michelle Callahan, Escape Alive participant, CT
"This class is amazing. I can’t wait to start coming to classes once a week. You guys really made me see that its a serious thing to know how to defend your self and you never know how strong that person maybe so to keep practicing and attending classes is (definitely) in my future!"
-Morgan James, Escape Alive participant, CT
"I just wanted to tell you that I thought the Escape Alive course was incredible. I can't stop talking about it. I will make everyone I know take a course soon or later. My friend Lyn and her daughter Krista loved it too."
-Carol Wilton, Escape Alive participant, JDNM Administrative Coordinator, CT
"As a practicing martial artist I make an effort to attend self defense classes as often as possible and the Escape Alive was one of the most professional, realistic and helpful self defense seminars I have ever attended. I would highly recommend the class to all women, regardless of their backgrounds, ages or skill sets. If Escape Alive comes to your area attend it!"
-Casey Etter (Bobb), Escape Alive participant, NY
"Learned a lot today at class. Both my girls said that they thought they could protect themselves before the class. After taking the class they said they wouldn't have been able to protect themselves before this class. What they thought they should do before was not the best option. Now at least they have some tools to protect themselves. Thank you again for all you do it was an eye opener to me."
-Christi Pace Burkman, Escape Alive participant, CT
"I also had a brilliant time - my daughter and I learnt a lot from you guys today. We will definitely be signing up for the next course when in our area. Thank you."
-Claire Bullock, Escape Alive participant, CT
"Thank you so much for today for the mother daughter self defense course! Everyone should take their daughter to this. We both learned so much and had fun doing it! I will be telling many of my friends about this fantastic program! Thank you again you were all wonderful!"
-Erin Gervais Tani, Escape Alive participant, CT
"This was a great class! I highly recommend it!"
-Lisa Nelson Lind, Escape Alive participant, CT
"My daughter Laura and I took the class on Sunday (3/11/2012) and we (were) very, very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed it. All the instructors were fantastic, well-trained and exhibited so much patience. They truly made this experience a very positive one. I feel very confident with what I learned at this class. Once again, thank you so much."
-Jean Kirk, Escape Alive participant, CT
"I attended this class yesterday in Naugatuck, CT (4/11/2012). The East Coast Training Systems team was professional, informative, and made sure everyone got a chance to be hands on. To the women from Jane Doe No More who shared their stories... THANK YOU. I plan on taking my girls to a class, this is need to know information!."
-Rhonda Hoxie Lord, Escape Alive participant, CT
"The women who shared their stories were amazing and inspiring! And their stories prove it could happen to anyone - all women need to take this class!"
-Heather Anderson, Escape Alive participant, CT
"I attended your class on March 30, 2013 at the Beacon Falls Senior Ctr. The info, training & eye witness accounts of the reality of what is happening out there were great. I am spreading the word & website to all my friends, too many people especially young girls are not taking this seriously enough. Thanks for all you do.”
-Marsha Kendall, Escape Alive participant, CT
“Thank you for such a great class (4/13/2013)! So happy to have been able to attend!! Definitely came away with some valuable escape strategies!! Thanks again for offering this free great class!!”
-Tina Dambowsky, Escape Alive participant, CT- via Facebook
“The Escape Alive team is AMAZING! Thank you for coming to our school to help our girls learn the importance of awareness and how to defend themselves! Words cannot express our gratitude!"
-Isabel Nunes-Siraco, Wilby High School, Escape Alive participant, CT
“The portion with the man in the suit was especially eye-opening. It's one thing to watch self defense demonstrated as a passive observer, but I had absolutely no idea what it felt like to hit or kick another person, or how much effort it requires!"
