About the Instructor – Alex Duncan

Alex Duncan is a graduate of the University of South Carolina. She took her first SASS class at USC, where it was offered as a P.E. course. She found the knowledge, physical skills, confidence, and sense of power that she gained throughout the course to be addictively invigorating and pursued instructorship under the training of the President & Founder of SASS Go, Shannon Henry. Alex achieved her first level of certification in March 2016 and her second level in January 2018. She teaches classes in the Washington-Baltimore Metro Area.

Alex is passionate about lifting up other women. She loves SASS because it helps women replace self-doubt with self-assurance, self-criticism with self-confidence, and worry, fear, and pain with knowledge and power. She loves SASS because it proves that when women lift each other up, they form strong communities that change the world.

In addition to teaching women’s self-defense classes, Alex is also pursuing a MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Liberty University in order to expand her ability to help women and girls who have suffered sexual and relationship violence.
