About this event


We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Thursday, October 20, 2022.

As we get older we may feel more vulnerable as some senses such as hearing and sight start to decline. However, vulnerability is more a state of mind than of body. After this presentation, you will walk out with the same body, but you will certainly be less vulnerable. Knowing what to do, when to do it, and how to do it, makes all the difference.

Learn to protect yourself at this presentation where you will be shown techniques to defend against those attacks most likely to occur during an assault: wrist grabs, choke holds, etc. Whatever your age of physical ability, these techniques are simple to learn, easy to remember, yet effective enough to incapacitate an attacker. Awareness and prevention strategies will also be covered, including the pros and cons of pepper spray, using household items as improvised weapons and using a cane to defend yourself, called "Cane Fu." Leave this class feeling empowered, knowing that your best weapon against assault is your own body.
