Interview with VoyageDenver


Rachel Mahloch, Personal Safety Coach

My mother tells a story about eating lunch in a local restaurant with three-year-old me when an acquaintance came over to say hello. She showered me with unwanted attention – buying me a candy bar and hugging and pinching me. When she turned to leave, I sat up in my chair and very clearly said, “And don’t you ever touch me again!”, as if I had been having a conversation in my head the whole time.

Interview with HerCampus


Recently, I had a chance to sit down with Rachel Mahloch: a mom, a women’s advocate, a self-defense specialist, and a badass. In just under an hour, I gained insight into Rachel’s journey, her love for self-defense, and the advice she has for college-aged women.

Interview with Shout Out Colorado

We had the good fortune of connecting with Rachel Mahloch and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Rachel, how does your business help the community?
My goal is to empower women to be able to handle physical threats of harm and give women a skill set to respond in a variety of real-life situations. When 1 in 3 women are likely to become the victim of gender-based violence, aggression towards women has become pervasive and normalized.   I want to have a positive impact on the safety of women and girls by ensuring that my self-defense method is accessible to as many people as more.
