"Empower yourself with the skills you’ll need to defend yourself. This self-defense program will empower you with a greater awareness of yourself and your surroundings, with tools that keep you safe in the real world. We cover common sense behaviors, avoidance, basic strikes and kicks, defense against grabs and chokeholds, and basic ground techniques*, time permitting*. By learning how to protect against danger, and developing the confidence that these skills bring, you will walk away with both peace of body and peace of mind."
