Event description

Description

Rockford Dance Company is hosting monthly self-defense classes throughout summer 2019. Call 815.963.3341 to gain additional information.

BACKGROUND
Rockford Dance Company (RDC) is aware of the current risks to individuals in the Rockford area related to: (1) human trafficking, (2) robbery, and (3) general safety. According to Rockford Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation (RAASE), Rockford is ranked #2 in the State of Illinois for human trafficking. Illinois is ranked #8 in the United States for human trafficking. These are sobering statistics; however, there are ways to decrease your risks by becoming educated. Individuals with a better understanding of self-awareness, situation-awareness, and common strategies for self-defense are less likely to become a victim of these violent acts due to preparedness.

WHY RDC?
1) RDC is doing what we can to better protect local community members. This ties directly back to our mission of community outreach and community engagement.

2) The connection between dance and martial arts dates back to the conception of Okinawan Shuri-Ryu which was derived from Chinese Kung-Fu. In order for the Okinawa to defend themselves from Japanese Samurai, their practice was hidden through dances. RDC is fortunate to have a black-belt ranked Okinawan Shuri-Ryu trained martial artist that has a passion for the arts in Rockford and the safety of his community.
