In response to recent sexual assaults in the East Dallas area, Chamberlain Studios of Self Defense in partnership with Council Member Angela Hunt are putting on a free self defense class this weekend, Saturday, September 22, at Tietze Park from 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.

This event is open to the public and is meant to educate on how to better defend yourself in case you find yourself in a potentially dangerous situation. Participants will learn how to disable an assailant in order to get away. The techniques taught are very simple and effective, and are based on striking vulnerable target areas.

Why Self Defense Training?

Self Defense is more than knowing how to fight back against a physical attack. Participation in self-defense classes encourages you to think in terms of options and and choices, develops your awareness and assertiveness skills and provides practice for physical self-defense techniques.

A good self defense class will expand the way you think about violence prevention, help you deal with your fears and enable you to feel more empowered in your life.
