OLLI-UA - Everyday Self-Defense

  • Christ Luthern Vail Church 13605 E Benson Hwy, Vail, AZ, 85641 United States (map)

Southeast Campus - Session 1 (10/24/19): What if you could increase awareness, reduce fear, live safer and feel more empowered? This seminar covers specific ways to increase personal and situational awareness. Explore a variety of effective strategies to help you recognize and prevent violence before it happens, including:

    • Identifying risky people and situations
    • Preparing responses for potential dangers (rather than reacting when it’s too late)
    • Everyday Habits of Awareness & safety
    • Methods for discouraging an attack

Session 2 (10/31/19): Because life doesn’t always go as planned, this session addresses how to defend yourself physically when needed. The strategies covered in this basic self-defense class include:
    • Using the natural weapons you already have at all times
    • Targeting the best parts of the body to disable and discourage an attacker
    • Understanding ranges of combat, stances and blocking techniques
    • Putting it all together in real-life scenarios with opportunity for hands-on practice in a controlled, safe environment.
