Self Defense

Tuesday, September 24, 2019

Today’s seniors are the fastest growing population in the world. They are living longer, healthier lives. But the truth is as we age our bodies do become more fragile, we naturally slow down and we can look as if we are an easy target for criminals.This course is designed to teach seniors how to avoid being a victim of an assault or an attack. Students will learn how to avoid an attack, and how to respond during a bad situation. They will learn what to look for to avoid trouble, how to draw attention to themselves in a fast, safe and efficient manner and, if the worse happens, how to get out alive.We’ll discuss how men and women differ in their reactions to high stress scenarios and how that can change your reaction.Students will learn hands on techniques to free themselves from physical attacks. The course is 90 minutes long and is safe for everyone. All techniques can be modified as needed. Most important, it’s fun and it’s vital to your safety.
