Most self defense classes focus on techniques that are far too complex for the average man or woman to realistically perform under stress, or techniques that could bring about your incarceration under current New York City laws. Realistically your best defense is ALWAYS to to get away from your attacker, and this class focuses on practical escape techniques that have been tested time and time again in real life situations, and can be used by anyone, regardless of age, fitness level or gender to break away and increase their chances of surviving a violent encounter. About Us: Amegakurekan is a school of modern ninjutsu with a strong community outreach mission. In addition to ongoing weekly classes for students, we host urban self defense workshops that are open to the public. These workshops focus on tried and tested real world solutions that anyone can employ without years of training to reduce their likelihood of injury during a violent event. Topics Covered: Overcoming The Freeze & Follow Response Deception Based Escape & Evasion Techniques Dealing With More Than One Attacker Counterattacks Against Armed/Unarmed Opponents The Aftermath: Truly Surviving The Experience All from the same ninjutsu based curriculum that has been taught to doctors, nurses, social workers, psychiatrists, psychologists working with violent and mentally ill individuals in some of the major New York city hospitals. Everything you will learn has been tried and tested in the real world and you will be taught by teachers with decades of experience. Our job will be helping to arm you with the tools you can use to increase your likelihood of surviving a violent encounter with the hopes that you never have to use them! There is no cost for the class, only a suggested donation of whatever you decide to help cover the cost of the venue, and while classes are oriented towards beginners, all are welcome. We are looking forward to meeting you and come in casual wear ready to work!
