Self Defence Workshop

***This will be Women's Only class***

This workshop will outline the basic principles and practices of self-defence including:

  • awareness and avoiding dangerous situations
  • body mechanics (where you are strong and your opponent is weak)
  • grabbing and principles of movement
  • blocking and striking
  • questions and demos
