Q: What will I learn in Self-Defense training?
This program emphasizes easy-to-learn techniques that have been tested in real, life-threatening confrontations. Students learn verbal tactics to keep themselves safe in situations of threats, attacks, and violence or boundary violations - whether with friends, acquaintances, dates, family or strangers. You will learn basic physical techniques to use if verbal tactics are not enough. Students will have the opportunity to practice the use of physical and verbal skills in drills and simulated attack scenarios. While there is nothing flashy about the system, it is highly effective, nonetheless.
