This Meet-up Focuses on Women's Basic Self Defense and Personal Safety.
Workshops are offered monthly and bi-monthly.

Where: TBD

When: Monthly
Who: All women ages 13 and up!

Workshops and lectures are forming!

Self-defense is a set of awareness, assertiveness, verbal confrontation skills with safety strategies and physical techniques that enable someone to successfully resist and escape violent attacks.

Self-Defense training can increase your options and help you prepare responses to de-escalate, or interrupt an attack. Like any tool, the more you know about it, the more informed you are to make a decision and to use it.

What does the Workshop Cover?

Workshop activities and discussion are designed to help women identify risks, evaluate their strengths, and to explore their options for dealing with the threat of violence. Class activities focus on awareness, body mechanics & language, and practicing verbal & physical strategies.

- Situational Awareness
- Self Protection outside of the home
- De-escalation & Disengagement Strategies
- Techniques against common holds and strikes
- Techniques for ground survival

Who can Take the Workshop?

Everyone can improve their skills and expand their options in case of an 
attempted attack. You do not have to be athletic to use the techniques taught.
* Bring a sweatshirt, wear comfortable clothing, and leave necklaces & jewelry at home. 

Instructor, Joanna Libonati, has over 10 years of Martial Arts training and expertise. She is a 3rd Degree Blackbelt in Moo Du Kwan TaeKwonDo. She also is a 1st Degree Blackbelt in Tae Han Gumdo (Korean sword fighting) and has training in HapKiDo and Tang Soo Do.
