Denise Rodriguez
Women’s Personal Safety & Empowerment Instructor for W2 Training & Firearms

Denise has taught thousands of students...mostly women...throughout her 8 years as an instructor, coach, and speaker. Her focus is working with women and women-specific crime prevention, personal security, firearm, and women-specific self defense content. She believes women need to separate themselves from the masses, need to raise each other up, allowing each other to stand on each other's shoulders, and have each other's back...not the opposite of which we see far too often in our communities. She seeks to push the borders worldwide to reach women internationally. The dynamics of how to stay is an international language all women speak.
