Hey everyone this is going to be one you don't want to miss!
Mike Jaqua will be the instructor for this meetup! Like I said in the last e-mail he is an amazing martial artist with tons of experience. Mike started in TaeKwonDo in the summer of 1981 in Phoenix, AZ and soon after worked his way up to black belt. Mike started Judo in 2002 in Michigan and obtained his black belt in that as well. He also has much experience in TangSooDo, Aikido, some weapons skills. Mike is consistently training, working with people from many styles, and most of all is always happy to share what he knows!
-Start off with learning to avoid or defuse confrontations while putting oneself in a simple, unoffensive, but advantageous position in case the defusing doesn't work out.
-Move up to how to respond to low-level aggression from another person. E.g. pushing, getting in your face
-Move up to how to deal with slightly higher level aggression. E.g. striking, grabbing
-Move up to clear intent of serious harm E.g. Mel Gibson off his meds
*Note that great care will be exercised at all times. While participants will "role play" everything will be structured to avoid actual harm to anyone.*
This meetup will have a slight cost of $10, this will go straight to Mike, it's more of a good faith payment more to guarantee that there is value taken from the time he will be working with us. Honestly though if you can't scrounge the ten bucks, come anyway, I'm sure we will be able to work something out.
There are two payment options, there is a secure paypal link, or you can pay in cash/check at the 'door'.
Seriously everyone, the skills that will be taught here are so incredibly valuable. Basic self defense is something that can never be reviewed too many times or learned from one source.
Be sure to bring loose comfortable clothing that you wont mind getting a few grass stains on!
RSVP right now! This one is coming up really quick!!!!
