Meet the Face of the Battle Brand: Rachel Mahloch
Personal safety expert, Rachel Mahloch aka Battle Mom® had a vision to create an empowerment brand for every woman that focused on teaching her specialized self-defense and personal safety training method. A holistic approach that combines physical, mental and verbal skills that can be used in a variety of situations.
Rachel has a deeply rich and diverse background - spanning almost 30 years - in corporate business, operatic vocal performance, and extensive martial arts training.
She became deeply aware to the importance of consistent self-care and its connection to personal safety after years of chronic stress, boundary issues and trauma collided, leading to frustration and fear of burnout. It also was the epiphany that led her to create an entirely new type of empowerment practice that helps women release stress, shed trauma, become fit and stay safe.
Rachel holds two, second degree black belts in both Kempo and a hybrid Japanese jujitsu-based self-defense (incorporating Muay Thai, Tae Kwando, Aikido, and Brazilian Jujitsu). Rachel's current training includes Muay Thai, Boxing, Kali, and Jeet Kune Do. She's also an apprentice in the Rogue JKD instructorship program - which teaches skills in unarmed and weapons combat, anger management, crisis communication and situational awareness.
World Health Organization statistics show one in three women globally will experience gender-based violence and aggression in their lifetime. Violence towards women is pervasive and normalized and Rachel’s work centers around shifting and reversing this cultural norm as does her own survival story of assault.
The Battle Woman® program is a scenario-based personal safety method that combines breathing and visualization with targeted technical training to build confidence, and mental and physical strength. Preventative practice is empowering and nurtures healing as women learn realistic defense skills and strategies to remain calm and controlled in-the-face of physical and mental harm. Her classes provide a safe arena for women to learn how to use their voice and set emotional and physical boundaries through role-playing of unpredictable scenarios and flow drills.
In a society that tends to be reactive, Battle Woman® is driven to positively impact women's health by proactively providing the keys to assault prevention: preparation, planning and practice.
A unique approach created specifically for women and girls that anyone can master.
A powerful preventive and healing practice that compliments other self-care routines.
A comprehensive method that incorporates breathing and visualization, along with targeted technical training.
A growing network of women who are transforming their lives through self-defense training.
