Self Defense for Women- new sessions added

Self Defense for Women!

3 hour course offered at Dance Country- Gales Ferry,CT

Although we would all love to think that we are living in a safe world and that nothing could happen to us, the facts and recent situations in the news show us this is not the case.  This 3 hour class taught by Frank Dawson (30 years of low enforcement) and  Jennifer Thornell (25 years of martial arts training) uses PowerPoint presentations, discussion and hands on physical techniques to learn skills that may save your life (some situations to be discussed are home invasion, car jacking, rape and active shooter scenarios).  This is a comprehensive workshop in personal safety and self-defense for women. The class examines predator behavior, promotes situational awareness, and will teach a few basic and very practical self-defense skills to both gain confidence and to develop survival skills. This program is informative and empowering and ideal for women who have concerns about personal safety. You are never too old to learn these skills!
