Women's Self Defense Class

This is an excellent three hour, hands on, class given by the police chief of Morrisville and a woman who runs a martial arts center. I took it a couple of years ago and learned so much (even though I had read and taken classes before). Chief Jones demonstrates what to do under various circumstances, and you actually practice them during the class. You learn how to use all parts of your body as a weapon of self defense. No matter how small you are, you will learn how to even toss the 200+ pound chief when he has you pinned to the ground (if you so choose). I cannot recommend highly enough for any woman or girl over 16.

There is a modest fee and you must register and pay in advance ($15 Cary residents/$19 non-residents). Class size is limited to 15, so register soon. While helpful for all women, I especially encourage solo adventurers to participate.

Here is the link to sign up online for course 74762: https://classweb.townofcary.org/eConnect/Activities/ActivitiesAdvSearch.asp It is a three hour class. Wear comfortable clothes and sneakers, as you will be practicing the techniques.

Please note: RSVPing 'yes' on this Meetup site alone does not get you a spot, so you must check with the link above to see if there is still a spot for you. You MUST sign up and pay through the Town of Cary. If you have difficulty registering online, you can go to any Town of Cary facility (Bond Lake Community Center, the Senior Center, etc and register in person).

    I got my number (from Cary Town) too late to be able to register. Hopefully, they'll do it again....

    Outstanding! If ever this class is repeated, I cannot recommend enough for all women ( age 18+) to attend.

    Of all the years I've lived in the Triangle and tried out different Meetups...this was by far the best event I've ever attended. It was fun, helpful, pertinent, and we still made friends.

    Hi Kit,
    I would like to see if they could do this class for my high school girl scout troop. Let me know if you find out the name of the martial arts instructor or studio so I can contact her.
    Thanks

    There are only three spots left if you want to attend. If you have trouble registering online, you can go in person to any Town of Cary facility.

      I don't live in the Cary area… Otherwise I would just drop by. Waiting on a reply for my request for registration. I'll probably call today if I don't hear something by noon.

      I was able to plug in the code number that you gave but it kept asking for a family access code or password. I will have to call when I'm done with work. No problem

      Unfortunately you need to either set up an account (which can take 24 hours, so try to do tonight) or go in person. Sorry it is so clumsy to sign up!

    Hi, Kit,

    Can't find the course on the link you gave... : may be the class is full and it is not available anymore ?
