This year, tens of thousands of Americans will report being assaulted and many, many more will find themselves in potentially dangerous confrontations. Many of them will be women.
Our Women’s Self-Defense Class presents a comprehensive and systematic approach to feeling in control in a world that sometimes seems out of control. From early prevention to last-ditch physical resistance, this class gives you the tools you need to deal effectively with situations ranging from uncomfortable to life-threatening.
In this class you will be given the tools to be able to look at someone without giving him or her permission to speak to you.
You will be provided examples of how you can mantain your personal space and boundaries even when “a friend gets too friendly”.
You will learn how to create and establish a presence of being strong, to look strong, even when you may not feel strong.
And while this class does not teach weapon use we can provide information on carrying weapons that will allow you to make an informed choice.
The goal is for you to leave with self- confidence; the assurance that comes from knowing that you are equipped to face an emergency.
This program is presented in two parts on two different evenings. Part One will discuss middle ground self-defense. Part Two is hands on and is physical. You must attend Part One to participate in Part Two. You may participate as much or as little as you want on the second night.
The instructor for this program is Chris M. Smaby, training specialist for the Cedar Rapids Police Department and chief instructor for the Japan Karate Association of Iowa.
