Situational Awareness

Self-defense is not always physical!

Join JMD Defense to learn about Situational Awareness—how having a good sense of your surroundings can help ensure your safety in everyday life. You'll learn tips and techniques that will keep you alert and prevent you from being vulnerable, whether you're at work, home or even at the store. Please dress comfortably as this class will require some movement. Sponsored by JenCare.
