    Anne... The meet ups on the 19th and the 26th are at the same location and will cover roughly the same information. The hands on clinic on the 29th is where folks will get the chance to try these strategies/tactics. I hope the Wed class provides some relevant and useful information that will be applicable for awareness and such. As to what you can walk away with that will be of immediate use in self-defense scenarios... knowledge is power, but training will kick knowledge's butt. LOL :)

    The lecture and power point presentation by Kat Thor, was very well done with plenty of good information suitable for a wide variety of participants. I very much appreciate the professional demeanor of both Fred Henss and Kat Thor, especially the brief introduction at the start of the meetings stating their desire and intent to avoid politics, religion and extremest views and their sharp focus on the information and subject matter being conveyed. Thank you! :)

    great information- the "physics of fighting" provided a critical foundation to build upon for the skills clinic. Never realized our amygdalas were that busy. thank you

    I'm confused: (don't know if you'll get this msg in time or not since this starts in 1.25 hrs.!) Are there 2 informational meetings this month on 9/ 19 & 26? Are they the same meetings (i.e same info. ) or sequential? I'm not avail. to attend the Sat. hands-on session on 9/29, but hope that the meeting will still cover info. I need to know to defend myself. ?

    I hate the parking in downtown Phoenix. Any suggestions for the best place to arrive and park? Thank you.

    NOTE: There will be no need for PPE or physical participation by anyone for the Wednesday meetings. Only the clinic at the end of the month is for hands-on participation (and thus the PPE requirement). Just clarifying... ;)

  • CAT T.

    This month we are having both Wednesday meetings at the downtown PHX location due to the space required for demo and participation.

    September 18, 2012

  • Sergei K

    Will there be a same meeting at Trident location next week?

    September 17, 2012

  • CAT T.

    The Wednesday meetings are informational. But attendance at one of these two meetings is required before attending the clinic on the last Saturday of the month (no, we don't have it posted yet). There will be safety consideration that we want to make sure everyone receives. Your safety is our first concern with these types of meet ups. :)

    I just want to observe.

    Is the Wednesday mtg just informational, and then we need the equipment for a subsequent mtg? Or do we need the equipment on Wednesday?

    The PPE that will be required are, at a minimum, groin protection, mouth piece, and padded hand protection. I recommend instep pads and elbow pads, as well as good head gear, but none of those are required. I will be wearing them, if that helps. :)

    September 17, 2012

    The waiver will be a simple examption that says you understand (for the hands-on clinic) that you will be engaging in a physical activity that is inherently dangerous and that you are aware of the risks. Nothing else. It's the standard waiver that you sign when joining a gym or going to a martial arts training seminar.

    Is this going to be offered again in Tempe, -OR- can I carpool to Cable One with someone? (Gilbert area).

    September 17, 2012

  • Debbie

    I am wondering too. Masks, gloves?

    September 17, 2012

  • Karen S

    What PPE will be required for the clinic?
