Lynseys brand new DVD Taking Control is designed to teach women how to combat attacks from violent crime. Fuelled by a fierce attack by a stranger, Lynsey received training from a 9th Dan Black Belt Ju-Jitsu masters and an American Crime Prevention Officer with 20 years in the US Police Force.

This was so successful, now a self-help booklet and new DVD Taking Control have been released to inform and train women of all ages in the basics of self-defense, showing vital skills that are required in 21st Century life. The central message in Taking Control is that women need to unlearn being ladylike, and act vocally and assertively in times of crisis.
