Event description

Description

While it may be a rare occasion that you run into someone who would want to cause you harm, knowing how to carry yourself while out and about, verbal cues to establish boundaries and physical techniques will give you the confidence you need to react.

Women and young girls can benefit from self-defense courses for a number of reasons. It improves confidence but it also helps them to level the playing field against an attacker who may be much larger than they are. This course is excellent preparation for girls going off to college for the first time or women of any age.

This class is intended to increase your options and help you prepare responses to avoid, slow down, de-escalate, or interrupt an attack, and also empower one to prevent violence.

Join us!


The method of stun and run will be taught with an emphasis on locating different pressure points that can help a woman get away from an attacker including easy practical defense. Dress in comfortable work-out type clothing (no shorts please). Wear soft-soled, closed toe shoes and remove all jewelry.

A waiver must be completed prior to participation - we ask that you arrive 15 minutes early.

This class is taught by Master Al Shuman of ATA Black Belt Academy.

(Must be a Charlotte County resident)
