I'm never more courageous than when I'm embracing imperfection, embracing vulnerabilities, and setting boundaries with the people in my life

Boundaries are a prerequisite for compassion and empathy

Brene Brown

Bespoke self-defense courses for women in the professional giving fields to learn tools to establish boundaries and to feel empowered, grounded and strong.


Boundaries can be especially challenging for people in the helping professions:  therapists, health care workers, teachers, and others, precisely because of professional expectations to accommodate all their client’s needs.


I will teach you how to set boundaries that protect your mental, physical, and emotional well-being to help you be able to continue to help others, and prevent burn out and over extension.


Nice to meet

I’m Tamar Frank, an empowerment self-defense instructor, clinical social worker MSW from Tel Aviv U, and black belt in karate. 


Thanks to the combination of these worlds,  I have created unique self-defense and boundary courses, tailored specifically for professionals in the giving fields such as  therapists, educators, health workers and others. 

Stemming from the deep understanding that your work with these clients brings with it its own challenges,  I teach specific comprehensive practical tools  -- physical and verbal -- to help you recognize, assert and uphold your boundaries. 


WHEN  (not if)  your boundaries are tested, I will give you the tools to be able to effectively and confidently and safely reestablish boundaries for a continued productive professional relationship.     

Professional Background

  • Self defense instructor in the Empowerment Self Defense community  3+ years

  • MSW Tel Aviv University Clinical Social Worker and Gender Studies.

  • Black belt Karate with 20 years experience in “Tora Dojo”

  • Taught these tools to a diversity of people including battered women, elderly, children, and more.

I Believe

Knowing how to set boundaries is one of the most essential yet untaught skills. 

Therapists are expected to constantly give and to ‘hold’ everything that comes up in therapy, creating challenges when there is ‘acting out’.  You don’t have to ‘hold’ everything – making you feel bad/unsafe.    You are allowed to feel safe.  You are allowed to feel strong, even while being a good therapist and helping others.  It is not “either/or”. 

Healthy boundaries are the limits you place around your time, emotions, body, and mental health to stay resilient, solid, and content with who you are. These empowering borders protect you from being used, drained, or manipulated by others.


In short, boundaries empower you to take charge of your life.  I help you find, connect and express your inner voice in your role as caregiver.

Dear Tamar! We just wanted to say thanks! Thank you for conducting a self-defense workshop for the girls of the class. Giving the Bat Mitzvah girls an active and meaningful workshop that included both verbal and physical self-defense, tools for self-preservation, personal empowerment, and all in an active and fun way! The girls both learned and received added value... I have no doubt that we will recommend you for these types of workshops. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything
