For Girls and Women Ages 12 and Up

Join Krav Maga Alliance certified instructor Tracie Ide in a women’s self-protection and empowerment event from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. This hands-on, practical training will include striking combative practice and self-defense principles to defend against common attacks both standing and on the ground, including bear hugs and being pinned underneath a larger attacker. Discussion will include real, honest conversation about what it should really mean to “act like a lady” and how phrases like that can keep our daughters from being willing to act against a sudden, violent attack. Registration is required.
