Here is the perfect date! Bring a lover, bring a friend, bring your child or just treat yourself. This Valentine's Day explore the Anatomy Of Self-Protection (TM), come train and commune with others who wish to be prepare for "When love don't love nobody". It takes a fool to learn, when it's too late to learn.
LAUGHING RIVER (R), ASP (Anatomy of Self-Protection)(TM) is a method of training in self-protection, where you don't need athletic agility, physical fitness, strength, speed, or brute force to effectively survive a life threatening criminal assault. The human anatomy has 78 points (over 200 counting bilateral points) which are sensitive to pressure. Striking any of these vital areas in succession creates an irresistible "spinal reflex", which can renders your attacker helpless. For when you can't peacefully "talk your way out" of a life treating conflict, this courses teaches you how to survive an attack from, asocial, psychopathic, criminals. This workshop is not a "sport" type of martial art. ASP (R) is great for women, LGBT individuals, and other communities besieged by violence.
This event will be hosted by the Laughing River Martial Arts School's chief instructor Dino Blanche. He is a teacher of Tai Chi, Jujitsu and ASP for over 38 years. Visit the Laughing River website at: www.thelaughingriver.com
