Women Only - Victim Prevention & Self-Defense Class
On Sunday, November 28th, 2010, On Target has a Women Only Class scheduled to start at 9am. The class covers such topics as Self-Defense using "gross motor skills" defense, crime deterrence and prevention, legal aspects of use of violence for self-defense, strike zones and pressure points, plus use of mace/pepper spray, stun guns, improvised weapons and firearms for defense. This is a class where you come dressed for activity because you will be practicing what you have been taught.
The cost for this class is $85 per student and may be paid at the door, but pre-registration by phone is a must since space is limited. The class starts at 9am and will end approximately at 4:30pm with a lunch break at noon.
If you have ever been curious about self-defense or have been seriously considering learning more about personal safety, this is the class for you. Join us on November, 28, 2010 and start your journey towards those goals.
Re: Women Only - Victim Prevention & Self-Defense Class
We have had good response on this class so far and are already planning our next one to fit in our schedule. We hope to see all those that have signed up. Commitment to personal safety should always be a high priority for all of us. Recently I had an encounter with a young lady who thought I had too much of a police attitude during a concealed carry class. I can't tell you how wrong I feel that assesment to be. Yes, I am ex-law enforcement but that was quite a few years back and I try hard to keep my classes loose and friendly. We do have a local police officer who is a good friend of On Target that comes in on class day and gives a talk on how a concealed carry holder should interact with the law. I don't think she could have confused us, but maybe one thing blended into another for her and I got the bad rap. I do not know....
For this upcoming class, students should be aware that they will be learning self defense measures and that they will have them shown to them personally and then they must practice and execute them. It is a fun class, but I do introduce the real stresses that a student may face when attacked. Preparing people for what may happen so that they may have a higher probability of survival is something I do not take lightly.
