"The focus of the training is on the importance of awareness, prevention, streetwise precaution and most importantly, self-defense. This training is both lecture and hands-on. Physical activity is encouraged, but not required. During the hands-on portion of this training, you will literally be “hands on”. Many women have found that signing up with a friend makes this portion of the training a bit more comfortable.
Participants are asked to wear athletic type clothing, with no buttons or zippers. Socks and long sleeve shirts are required. Participants are encouraged to bring a water bottle and a light snack.
Enrollment is open to females 13 years of age or older; however, anyone under the age of 17 must be accompanied by an adult.
This course is limited to 50 participants."
