Women’s Self-Defense Seminar

Woman Escapes from Bear Hug

Woman Escapes from Bear Hug

The days get shorter. Cool weather is calling you outside. We’re losing daylight and getting ready for the hectic holiday season. You’re out in the dark shopping or going for a run. How safe do you feel?

In one seminar you can learn skills and techniques to give you an increased sense of security.

Master Dan Amerson is proud to present a women’s self-defense seminar focused on repelling and escaping common attacks. No experience is necessary as we cover how to defend against:

  • Bear hugs from behind.
  • Front chokes.
  • Arm and wrist grabs.
  • … and more!

The seminar will also cover practical self-defense techniques using everyday weapons that are already on your person, in your pocket, or in your purse. Yes, loose change or an empty water bottle can be an asset in an altercation. Time will be left at the end for questions from attendees to focus on specific attacks or other areas of concern.
