In response to the abduction that took place in Philadelphia, PA on November 2nd, 2014 the Gracie Academy offered free women’s self-defense seminars on January 10, 2015, in over 20 cities around the globe! Of course, Gracie Milwaukee was one of the participating Certified Training Center’s. If you didn’t see already, check out Rener & Eve’s video response to the abduction here.
The special 2-hour seminar was designed for first-time self-defense students and taught participants six critical techniques to address the following threat scenarios:
- How to apply the Four-Phase Psychology to neutralize sexual predators, both strangers and non-strangers.
- How to break free from an attacker who grabs you without warning.
- How to avoid being taken to the ground by a determined attacker.
- How to escape from underneath an attacker pinning you to the ground.
Everyone had a great time and learned a lot of valuable, potentially life-saving strategies and techniques.
