2017 Women’s Symposium in Dillon – Self-Defense Workshop
Where: LDS Church in Dillon
When: September 23, 2017 (The Symposium starts at 8:00am)
I will facilitate two workshops, one from 9:30am – 10:15am; the next one from 10:30am- 11:15am.
What: The workshops will focus on releasing yourself from being grabbed, held, or otherwise restrained.
The greatest danger to women is not strangers in dark alleys but people we know. Betraying trust, these aggressors often manipulate and control their intended targets mentally and emotionally. Self-defense against such tactics ideally begins on mental and emotional levels. But sometimes we need physical skills. When attackers use physical force, their assaults often start with grabs and holds. In my Dillon workshops you will learn reality-based, practical skills to release yourself from such grabs and holds, and if necessary, to counter-attack so that you can escape to safety. If time allows, we’ll also address defenses against strangulation attempts.
Who: Anyone attending the Dillon Women’s Symposium
Cost: The fee for the entire symposium is $20 per person or $30 for two friends
