Anny Jacoby is the Owner/President of Jacoby & Associates, Consulting and Training. Through the divisions of The Realistic Female Self-Defense Company and Project Safe Girls, she passionately campaigns for every female to have the absolute right to protect and defend herself from mentally to ultimately physical if needed.
After her own assault, Anny took steps to turn her passion to help victims into her life’s work. As a Certified Advocate she founded her companies based on a realistic approach for females to protect themselves, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually, building confidence and self esteem.
Anny’s mission is to reach out to every avenue available to teach these skills at the corporate level, to emergency services, victim support groups and agencies, schools, colleges and health service providers. Her professional programs are designed for every age group from children to seniors, as well as a program designed specifically for the disabled.
Anny added a new division to her company, Project Safe Girls in 2010, which is designed specifically for girls and is used in after school programs, girl’s organizations, YWCAs and YMCAs, to name a few of the target areas. Specific curriculum and training is developed for age appropriate tips and training.
Anny’s program is not traditional “self-defense” nor martial arts or weapons. She has developed her training exclusively for females and teaches them to use their bodies as their weapon to diffuse a violent situation.
Anny’s style is serious, with compassion and empathy, yet fun and empowering. Her training classes and seminars leave her students with a sense of confidence and an understanding of their intuitions regarding safety. Anny has authored a comprehensive training manual for each student to take with them as reference.
Anny Jacoby is available for speaking engagements, lectures, individual consultations and presentations. She became a Certified PDR (Personal Defense Readiness) Instructor in 2008 and has a team of male Certified PDR instructors and coaches with The Realistic Female Self-Defense Company and Project Safe Girls who are dedicated to teaching and training only females.
Anny is also a Child Abuse Authorized Facilitator and Prevention Specialist who trains adults to prevent, recognize and react responsibly to child sexual abuse through Darkness to Light’s Stewards of Children certification program. Anny travels throughout the US bringing this important and vital information to all communities. To schedule Anny to speak or train in your community please feel free to contact her.
