Free self-defense clinics were provided for kids and adults. These included some discussion about avoiding and de-escalating confrontations and bullying. Participants were then given some fundamental ‘striking’ strategies by way of practical blocking and countering drills. Lastly, everyone learned some escape techniques for common holds.
In addition to being a fun and productive day, students and visitors received some new ’swag’ in the form of ZenQuest water bottles and ’fidget spinners’. Several new students decided to enroll before the day was over, too!
Thanks to everyone that made this day possible and thanks to all visitors for coming to check us out. See you next year!!
