The 2 hour class includes getting out of grabs, as well as practicing verbal scenarios. You’ll have a chance to hit and kick pads, practice yelling, get answers to your questions, learn myths vs facts about who an attacker would most likely be. We’ll ask you what situations you specifically are worried about and make sure to cover those.
