Women's Self-Defense Course
This 90-minute course will be held on August 26th from 12pm-1:30pm at Achieve Fitness. It will be led by Krav Maga 5th degree black belt, Gershon Ben Keren. Below is a description of the class and what to expect:
"There’s more to real world self-defense than just learning a set of physical techniques. Without an understanding of how predatory individuals think and operate, and an ability to identify the pre-violence indicators that they display, it’s unlikely that you’ll ever be in a state of readiness that will allow you to get a technique to work. The SEPS System (Situation Effective Protection System), teaches a framework and an approach to understanding violence, that is research-based, and provides proven and effective solutions to violence; both physical and non-physical. In this 90-minute seminar, you will learn to predict, identify, and avoid a variety of violent situations, as well as how to physically deal with them, should de-escalation and disengagement not be an option. The seminar will be taught by Gershon Ben Keren, a 5th Degree Black Belt in Krav Maga (the self-defense system of the IDF – Israeli Defense Forces), and best-selling author of “Krav Maga – Real World Solutions to Real World Violence”, and “Krav Maga – Tactical Survival”. Gershon has over 25 years’ experience, working in the security industry, and has a Master’s Degree in Psychology – where he concentrated his studies on sexual predators, interviewing those who had committed a variety of sexual assaults. His academic studies, and first-hand experience of violence colors and guides his approach to self-protection and self-defense. Come and learn professional tactics, methods, and approaches that are taught to security professionals, and learn how to apply them to your own life. This seminar is available to women aged 15+, those under 18 will require the signature of a parent/guardian to participate."
