Introduction to Krav Maga for Woman ONLY
Saturday, April 4th
$40 per person
Have you ever walked to your car at night and felt the hairs on the back of your neck stand up? Ignoring your intuition, you brush it off as paranoia and begin loading your bags in your car. All of a sudden, you feel a knife in your lower back and a raspy voice telling you to give him the keys. What do you do?
Women have incredible intuition, but many don’t listen to it.
1 out of 6 American women will be the victim of sexual violence in her lifetime, according to the CDC.
It’s time to be prepared, not paranoid. That’s why Elite Krav Maga developed a Women's Only Krav Maga Seminar. This 2-hour seminar will dive into the most common attacks against women and the defenses against them. We’ll review proven tactics against bear hugs, wrist grabs, hair pulls, and mugging situations
Unfortunately, in today’s world, citizens have to be prepared to defend themselves from everything from a personal attack to an active shooter. No longer can we depend on first responders that may take 5, 10, 15 minutes to arrive to the scene. When you’re in a life or death situation, 5 minutes feels like a lifetime.
Do you want to gain confidence and strength so you can defend yourself and your family in any situation? This workshop will give you just that.
Join us and our community of strong women.
