Help your daughters protect themselves

6 Jan

If you have a young daughter, please read on for information about what I think is a very important opportunity.

DK Dance in the Village of Webster will host two one-hour self-defense classes this coming Friday evening, January 11.

The classes, which will be taught by black belt instructors from Matsunami Karate, will cover simple and effective self-defense techniques to help empower young women to feel strong and safe. Skills which will be taught include basic grab, strike and defense maneuvers, break-aways, defenses against attacks from front and behind, and defenses against chokes and grabs.

Two classes will be offered. The first, designed for girls ages 5 to 9, will be held from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m. Th following class, held from 7:30 to 8:30, is for girls ages 10 and up. Cost is $30 per participant (or $50 for an adult and child). All proceeds will support DK Dance’s Level 6 Performance Team. You can register here, and then bring payment the night of the class.

As a martial arts instructor myself, I know the importance of becoming familiar with a variety of self-defense techniques — and it’s especially important for girls and women to learn how to protect themselves. I highly encourage everyone who has a young daughter to consider attending this very worthwhile class.

DK Dance is located at 205 North Ave. in the Village of Webster. For more information about the school, visit their webpage here.

    Mrs. Sweetland took self-defense for women many years ago and has 2 broken boards to prove it. Luckily I have never had to use the moves I learned. Wouldn’t mind a refresher course geared to the “older” woman! Not sure I could pull off some of that at the age of 72!

      Knowing you, I would wager that if you and a pine board were to meet in a dark alley, you would win the fight.
