This self defense class is all about empowerment. The skills, tools and information presented will introduce you to techniques, physical and mental, for diffusing, and if called for, handling threatening or potentially dangerous situations. Physics rather than strength make self defense possible for everyone regardless of their physical condition. If you use a cane, walking stick or hiking poles these can be part of a self defense tool kit. The workshop will include an introduction to their use.
