Front Royal Women's Self Defense

Saturday, January 19, 2019 9am - 12pm
Virginia Hills Church, 737 Rockland Rd, Front Royal, VA 22630

This is a free, hands-on, interactive class that will begin with a PowerPoint presentation covering situational awareness. We will then move into hands-on techniques, including punches, kicks, and strikes as well as defenses and escapes. At the end of the class, an instructor will pose as a “bad guy” in a padded suit, which will give each student an opportunity to practice the new learned skills.

Each participant will be required to sign a waiver at the beginning of the class. Ages 16 and up are welcome, but minors must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Please plan on wearing comfortable clothing and bring something to keep hydrated!
