Each seminar in this 4 part series will focus on women specific threats and scenarios.
Week 1 - April 8, 1-3pm (Fundamentals: Situational Awareness, De-escalation & Releases from Common Grabs)
In this week’s seminar, we will explore the concept of situational awareness and practice ways to de-escalate potentially dangerous situations. We will also cover the Krav Maga techniques for releasing various common grabs and holds.
Week 2 - April 22, 1-3 pm (Utilizing Common Objects & Self-Defense Tools)
This week's seminar will focus on using everyday objects to assist you in defending yourself. Using objects such as your bag or purse as a defensive or offensive weapon to turn the tables on an attacker. Being able to quickly identify and utilize an everyday object as a self-defense tool is as valuable a skill as striking & kicking.
Week 3 - May 6, 1-3 pm (Ground Tactics)
This week’s seminar will focus on dealing with a predatory attacker who tries to take the attack to the ground and pin you down. This week will also see you work in clothing that you commonly wear out on the town, such as skirts or jeans.
(Please wear Yoga pants under skirts, and wear clothing that you do not mind getting dirty and/or possibly damaged)
Week 4 - May 20, 1-3 pm (Home & Car Security)
For this week’s seminar, we will discuss various safety options if you're in your home during a home invasion or burglary. Also, we'll work on various techniques and tactics inside and around a car and as you make your way to & from you vehicle.
