Come with me as I chat with Suzanne Jean Director of Fit4Defense who conceived and now operates PowerED, a holistic life program that inspires confidence in participants to be heard, safe in the community and free from abuse through assertive communication and self-defense. The life-changing transformations she witnessed while teaching PowerED inspired her to write her powerful book, “Bullying Stops Here,” in which she shares the true stories of persons who converted fear into confidence, self-reliance, and positive action through the skills acquired in the program.

The program provides information and techniques to gain life and leadership skills, improve communication and manage anger for the purpose of violence prevention, increased safety and risk reduction. It helps to transform fear into confidence, self-reliance, and action.

Over 50 years in social services and Member of Canadian Professional Speakers Association

Suzanne has trained in the martial arts since 1975 and teaches karate, tai chi, and self-defense. . She is an insured member of Karate B.C., holds a National Coaching Certification, and a Nidan Black Belt in Karate.
