Are you not feeling as safe as you once did? Would you like to learn some real, effective, life-saving, techniques? In this introductory course, you will get a basic understanding of the psychology of attacks and defenses. You will find out how to avoid on coming actions, get out of chokes, release arm grabs and how to apply simple effective counter actions to an opponent. In addition to this, you will learn how to use a simple self-defense device called a KUBOTAN that you can legally carry with you as you go about your day, which can greatly magnify your ability to defend yourself. Wear loose comfortable clothing. A fee of $10.00 for the required KUBOTAN payable to St Cloud Karate & Tai Chi Instruction will be collected at the first class.
