My Community Service Project, Women's Self-Defense Seminar at MIMA

For my community service project I have put together with the help of Grand Master Strongheart and Master Wells a women’s self-defense class at the do-jang. Reading and hearing on the news a lot about women getting attacked I thought it would be a great idea for women to know how to protect themselves in case of an attack. I have invited friend and acquaintances to this seminar. This will be an opportunity for them to learn the basics in self-defense.


During the seminar they will learn how to:

A) Keep themselves out of harm’s way and

B) Defend themselves during a violent encounter?


The primary focus of this seminar is to develop a woman’s ability to detect potential danger and avoid it. The secondary focus is embedding the physical skills needed to survive a physical attack.
