Safety & Self Defense Class

Safety & Self Defense Class

Wednesday, June 21, 2023
9:00 AM - 10:00 AM (CDT)

Event Details

We all have preconceived notions of what a dangerous situation looks like. Is it a dark alley late at night with no one around? Is it a crowded street during a celebration? Or is it your local grocery store on a Tuesday afternoon? The truth is you never really know. It is important to prepare for negative events but it is equally important to practice good safety habits regardless of the situation. This course is a great intro and overview on self-defense, safety habits and practices that can be implemented by anyone. While this course is perfect for on-site personnel, the content will be extremely beneficial and valuable to anyone!

This program will include information on:

  • Prevention:  Body language, verbal self-defense, and awareness
  • Prevention in Specific Situations:  Being grabbed or held, choked, picked up or dragged
  • When to fight and how to win:  When you assess the situation and choose to fight back, do so with the full commitment to win. Anything less diminishes your effectiveness. 
  • Self-Confidence:  Self-defense begins with self-confidence. You must believe that you are worth fighting for, that you are a unique, worthwhile person. Respect yourself, and others will respect you. No one has the right to touch you without your consent. No one has the right to hurt you.

Space is limited to 25 people.  A light continental breakfast will be provided.  Class starts promptly at 9:00 am so please arrive early.
