Basic Self Defense for Women and Those Who Present Themselves as Women

Presenter: Suzanne Adams

Peninsula, on Mon May 13 at 1:00PM

Suzanne has extensive past and current experience in law enforcement. She will teach you about awareness, avoiding risky situations, moving safely through different surroundings, a variety of self-defense moves, and how to handle interactions with the public and the police. Although this is a self defense course, movement is kept to a minimum and "dressing down" is not necessary.
