Free Women Empowered Seminars - Jan 10, 2015

November 26, 2014

In response to the abduction that took place in imagePhiladelphia, PA on November 2nd, the Gracie Academy is offering free women's self-defense seminars on January 10, 2015, in over 20 cities around the globe! These special 2-hour seminars are designed for first-time self-defense students and will teach participants six critical techniques to address the following threat scenarios:

-How to apply the Four-Phase Psychology to neutralize sexual predators, both strangers and non-strangers.
-How to break free from an attacker who grabs you without warning.
-How to avoid being taken to the ground by a determined attacker.
-How to escape from underneath an attacker pinning you to the ground.

Carlesha Freeland-Gaither, a 22-year-old nursing assistant from Philadelphia, was forced into a vehicle and kidnapped at 9:40pm on Sunday, November 2. The entire incident was caught on tape, and three days later, Carlesha was found in Maryland with minor injuries. The "vicious predator," Delvin Barnes, 37, was taken into custody and will be charged with assault and kidnapping.
