Description

Haven House has partnered with the Wayne Martial Arts Center to host the "NOT TODAY!" a self defense class in Wayne, NE!

ADMISSION COST: We are just asking that you donate laundry detergent OR a household cleaning item for attending this class. These items will be donated to Haven House to help survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Learn how to keep yourself safe in all types of situations. You'll get the opportunity to learn from trained instructors on using everyday objects as weapons, self-defense moves, tactics to keep yourself safe, and how to fight off a potential attacker. Sometimes the best defense in a situation is self-defense.

BE TRAINED. BE PREPARED. BE EMPOWERED.

The inspiration from the name of this class came from the story of this female jogger. She had just been through a self-defense class when an individual attempted to rape her in a park bathroom. She was prepared with the lessons she learned in the self-defense class she had recently attended. As she fought off the attacker, she also screamed out "NOT TODAY (expletive)!!!!!". Check out the video below to learn her story and see what happened.
