JUNO CREATOR & CHIEF TRAINER

SYNTHIA
STOFFER

"I want to create a safer world for women."

JUNO founder Synthia Stoffer was the first female Krav Maga instructor in the Netherlands in 2005. After a career as competitive swimmer, Synthia made short excursions into Free Fighting and Boxing until she found what she was really looking for: Krav Maga (Hebrew for "contact fight") a sport that would enable people to defend themselves regardless of gender, height or strength. Synthia was trained in Israel, Switzerland and the United States. Today, she is one of very few women worldwide to hold a 3rd degree Black Belt, and she is the highest ranked women in Krav Maga in Europe.

“Not that many women have the determination and strengths to go this far in a Martial Art. Usually at this level its all men. To have any woman involved at this level is impressive…and if that women is then also extraordinary good that’s even more impressive…and that’s Synthia” (John Whitman, Founder of Krav Maga Alliance/ U.S.).

The fact that women are attacked differently than men requires a new approach to common Women Self Defense Training. The female psychology works different, we are raised differently and therefore we need to defend ourselves in different ways. JUNO is a unique combination of mental & physical Self Defense training. More than just physical combat moves, it’s a holistic approach that trains body, mind and emotions”.

Key Facts:

  • Synthia achieved her 3rd degree Black Belt in March 2017.

  • She created JUNO in January 2017 and set up the biggest Self Defese Center in Central Netherlands in same year. The only one run by a woman.

  • Synthia is Member of the Elite International Krav Maga Alliance Trainer team since 2014 and certified by the Wingate Institute, Israel.

  • In September 2017 Synthia has won the "Power Woman of the Year" award by Dutch magazine VIVA400.

JUNO OPRICHTER & HOOFD TRAINER

SYNTHIA STOFFER

"HET IS BETER OM DE VAARDIGHEDEN TE BEHEERSEN EN ZE NIET NODIG TE HEBBEN DAN ANDERSOM."

JUNO oprichter Synthia Stoffer was in 2005 de allereerste vrouwelijke Krav Maga instructeur in Nederland. Na een carrière als wedstrijdzwemster maakte Synthia uitstapjes naar Free Fighting en boksen, totdat zij haar roeping vond: Krav Maga (Hebreeuws voor ‘contact gevecht’) een methode waarmee iedereen zich kan verdedigen ongeacht geslacht, leeftijd, lengte of kracht.

Synthia is opgeleid in Israël, Zwitserland en de Verenigde Staten. Zij is nu één van de weinige vrouwen ter wereld met een 3de Zwarte Band Krav Maga. Ook heeft zij de hoogste kwalificatie Krav Maga van vrouwen in Europa.

Weinig vrouwen hebben de vastberadenheid en kracht om zo ver te komen in een Martial Art. Op dit niveau zijn het bijna alleen maar mannen. En dan een vrouw tegenkomen die zo bijzonder goed is, dan is dat heel indrukwekkend… Synthia is zo’n vrouw. (John Whitman, oprichter vande Krav Maga Alliance in de V.S.).

Synthia weet dat ongewenste intimiteiten en seksueel geweld iedereen kunnen overkomen. Niemand vraagt erom. Vrouwen worden op andere manieren aangevallen dan mannen. In 2017 heeft JUNO ontworpen, een nieuw zelfverdedigingssysteem voor vrouwen, gebaseerd op Krav Maga.

CO-FOUNDER & BRAND CATALYST

Eva
Sutter

“If we don't put ourselve in challenging situations, we don't see what we're capable of'‘.

Eva is an internationally experienced marketing professional who thrives on building brands with a deeper purpose.

With a passion for sports and a wealth of experience having worked for global sporting good and consumer electronic brands, Eva joined forces with her partner Synthia in 2016 to bring JUNO to market.

“2 years ago, when I met Synthia, I had no idea of what Krav Maga was and the thought of traditional women self defense brought up images of victimized women, scary dark photos and dull classes lectured by men in old fashioned gyms. Immediately, I was fascinated by Synthia’s idea to build a new program for women powered by women that would focus on the positive strength and mental self-awareness in a new and inspiring way. I had no idea how rewarding this work would be. Bringing JUNO to life is one of the most meaningful things I’ve ever done in my career.”

JUNO TRAINER

MIRIAM VAN HOVEN

"The power of JUNO is the combination of
physical and mental strengTh."

Miriam started teaching
self defense in 2016. She likes cycling, running and fitness training where she can test her own limits. As a social worker, she has been confronted with a lot of aggression and behavioural issues. She teaches self defense as a way to control emotions, setting own boundaries, as well as increase confidence and fitness. What inspires Miriam most is to see the positive effect that
self defense training has on people and that women are usually stronger than they think they are.

Van Hoven

"DE KRACHT VAN JUNO IS DE COMBINATIE TUSSEN FYSIEKE EN MENTALE KRACHT."

Miriam geeft les in zelfverdediging sinds 2016. Daarnaast houdt ze van rennen, fietsen en fitness, waar ze haar eigen limieten in opzoekt. Als sociaal werker is ze vaak in aanraking geweest met agressie en gedragsproblemen. Zij ziet training in zelfverdediging als een manier om te leren je emoties te controleren, grenzen te stellen, en zelfvertrouwen en fitness te verbeteren. Zij raakt geïnspireerd door het zien van de positieve effecten van zelfverdediging op mensen, en de bewustwording van vrouwen dat ze zoveel sterker zijn dan ze vaak denken.
