Free Women's Self-Defense Seminars This Weekend

July 11, 2014

Less Than Five Spots Available - Call Today!

In response to the sexual assault that took place in Manhattan Beach, CA on April 18th, the Gracie Academy is offering two free women's self-defense seminars, one in Torrance and one in Beverly Hills. 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.

The seminars are free but space is very limited, so you must RSVP in advance. Absolutely no experience is necessary to participate, and the seminars are open to women ages 13 and up (Note: Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult).
