At KYUP! Project, we believe just like you don’t need to be a lifesaver to know how to be safe on the beach, you don’t need to be a black belt to be safe on the street.

Our self-worth and self-protection programs and workshop offer a fun, safe and practical approach to boosting self-esteem and replacing fear with confidence for all ages and physical abilities. No matter a person’s size or strength everyone will be able to fully participate.
