Meet The Speakers
Lisa York will lead a crash course in self-defense. She has a diverse, comprehensive background that provides a solid foundation for all that she does. She has over 11 years combined experience in coaching, teaching, and training people in self-defense, basic gun training, conceal carry training, and protection in/out of home.
Lisa is the founder of Midwest Personal Protection. She is a high energy, entertaining seminar presenter and self defense instructor. Her offerings include a variety of assertiveness, conflict resolution and self-defense training for females ages 11 years old and up in the form of group seminars, private trainings, workshops, ladies night-ins, home parties, college safety presentations and more in the St. Charles, St. Louis and surrounding areas.
Lisa is passionate about teaching and training personal protection, mostly because it is very personal to her. Lisa was abused at a young age, and as an adult continued to engage in unhealthy relationships. In 2012, Lisa was raped by an authority figure, she knew. She took that experience and vowed that she would teach as many females she could how to protect themselves and to believe in themselves.
