Description

ENCORE! OUT PROFESSIONALS PRESENTS ‘TWO HOURS OF POWER,’ A SELF-DEFENSE DEMONSTRATION AND WORKSHOP WITH MARTIAL ARTS’ KATHY UNGER.

On Wednesday, Nov. 15, Out Professionals offers an encore presentation of “Two Hours of Power,” a self-defense demonstration and workshop with Kathy Unger, an accomplished First Degree Black Belt. These days it’s smart to be empowered with the confidence and practical skills to create boundaries and respond effectively in an emergency.

When your skilled efforts at prevention and avoidance fail, will you be prepared with self-defense strategies and striking techniques? “Two Hours of Power” aims to help you trust your awareness, assess situations rapidly, and protect yourself.

With Kathy, you learn to recognize and respond to threatening behavior with strong, assertive body language and verbal self-defense skills. Role-playing and pad drills train you to strike with power, speed, and commitment. Wear comfortable clothing and active footwear.

Open to all, this Out Professionals series aims to contribute to the safety and well-being of the LGBT community.

Kathy Unger is a First Degree Black Belt in the Poekoelan system (Indonesian martial arts). Poekoelan employs fast, whip-like strikes and leverages biomechanics to gain advantage in fighting situations. Kathy has led seminars for Fortune 100 companies and educational institutions including American Express, Bank of America, NBC, NY Presbyterian Hospital, NYU and Baruch. She is also a certified personal trainer and Licensed Reiki Master Teacher.
