In this class you will learn:

Defense against the most common strikes

Situational awareness
Recommendations to prevent attacks

Classes are free of charge and no prior experience is necessary.

The next course will be Jan 14, 21 and 28 (Tuesdays) from 6-9pm. Location to be announced upon registration.
