About

Learn women's self-defense with Sharon Bonewicz: * F.L.A.G. - Fight Like A Girl * G.O.G - Girls on Guard * Weapons defense It can be seen as a clever play on words for a woman's self-defense program, since most people fall into the semantic trap of thinking that fighting like a girl means being ineffective, weak or silly. For us, fighting like a girl means that a woman brings her particular strengths to the conflict, while minimizing the strengths of a man. When a man attacks a man, he either wants his money or his life. When a man attacks a woman, he either wants her money, her life, or her body. The nature of the conflict is, by definition, hugely different. The size and strength difference is huge, therefore necessitating a drastic change in strategy from the normal self-defense courses. She should not attempt to fight directly into the strengths of the man who is attacking her. That's not silly or flawed reasoning; it is a smart strategy for any fighter. The women's self-defense program is for women from ages 12 and up. The program is easy and fun to do, but also easy to remember, which is the most important thing with these programs. The movements are minimalistic with maximum efficiency. Level I is approximately 3 hours long. We discuss F.L.A.G.'s six self-defense principles, review basic safety concepts, and learn self-defense techniques. In this program, you will learn some of the basic solutions to the most common sexual assault scenarios. We cover 9 techniques which are easy to do and easy to remember. The seminars in the past have been a lot of fun, on top of a learning environment. We do a question and answer, as well as provide you with statistics and information to take home with you. At Level II, we do a review of Level I, as well as add a few details and embellishments on a few of the techniques. After everyone is feeling comfortable with the review, we move on to a new set of techniques. This will be a little more physical than Level I, but it is still easy to remember and do. We will also cover a few different forms of grabbing, such as uncomfortable holds, and how to escape from those. During the seminar, an attacker will be fully padded for you to practice on. After each set of different techniques, the women will get to try out and practice what they just learned, without having to pretend to do the moves. This is the safest way for you to try as well as absorb what you learned. This is optional though, and you will be given plenty of opportunities to work with the attackers. This is one of the things that make this seminar unique and a lot of fun. Wear something comfortable to move around. We will be working on the mats, so no shoes, but you can wear socks. Space is limited, so please register early.

About

Street Safe Martial Arts is NOT a sport based system like most commercial arts. Many martial arts appear to have some similarities on the surface but are in fact totally different. In a real world situation there are no referees and an attack or mugging is over within a few short seconds and often involves a knife, stick, or multiple attackers. FBI and Police crime statistics will confirm this fact. Since seconds count a person needs to be trained to respond correctly and decisively. Adrenalin overload sometimes called “The fog of war” may cause a person to totally freeze up, fight, or run. We train you to understand this and not to panic or freeze under high stress. Secondly you are taught to use skills from five categories of self-defense. Striking, Kicking, Throws, Locks, Ground Defense and Weapons Defense must be taught in way that is realistic. Backed up with our mental preparation training you will have an unfair advantage over a would-be attacker. You will feel great and gain new found confidence in yourself you never thought possible. Helping people reach their highest potential in life.

RED TIGER TAEKWON-DO

About

Established in 1983 by Master Mario Cancelliere under the "EL" (Elevated Station) in the Frankford section of Philadelphia, the USTC-Red Tiger has become one of the most recognizable and respected martial arts organizations of ITF-style taekwondo in the area. With various locations throughout Philadelphia and surrounding suburbs, the USTC hopes to spread Taekwon-do to students of all ages and socio-economic backgrounds. Through its family discounted programs, no contractual agreements, flexible hours and variety of classes, the USTC-Red Tiger demonstrates its commitment to students of all ages and abilities. Many people believe that the martial arts are just for children. That could not be further from the truth. Taekwon-do was developed as a method of self-defense. Because of its origins in the Orient, it is based on the principles of humility, respect, integrity, patience, perseverance, and loyalty. This philosophy is the cornerstone of conduct indicative of true martial artists. But Taekwon-do is much more than just one of the most efficient methods of unarmed self-defense, it serves as an invaluable tool for improving self-control, stamina, flexibility, coordination, relieving stress, sharpening reflexes and controlling weight. If you are looking for something other than martial arts instruction, we also offer two types of exciting fitness classes, Cardio-Kick (Aerobic Kickboxing) and Zumba (Latin aerobics). RED TIGER TKD
