Instructor: Sensei Mac
Bullies and attackers look for those who are vulnerable, whether at work, school, home, or on the street, but just one single defense can put an end to a confrontation if you know what you’re doing. This instruction is designed to give you parts and pieces of a whole. Most fights are fluid, but we trust that we have given you the basic tools to easily transition from one move to another when confronted. You’ll want to keep an attack from escalating. So, your goal is to dissuade a bully or disable your attacker, and get away safely. Could we have given you more instruction? Of course. But we have to begin somewhere, and if you don’t practice these step-by-step skills, like you would for any sport, you’ll find yourself lacking at a most unfortunate time.
