The popular “Don’t Be A Victim” self-defense workshop conducted by local self-defense and martial arts expert Jeff Ellis, master instructor at International Karate Centers on Pearl Road in Strongsville, is back by popular demand.
“Don’t Be A Victim" will be sponsored again by the Strongsville Rotary Club.
It is set for Thursday, Oct. 17 at the Erhrnfelt Recreation Center, 18100 Royalton Rd. Doors open at 6:15 p.m., with the program running 7-9 p.m.
This free community event is open to all area women and their teenage daughters.
“Women today even more than ever want to know they have
simple yet effective skills to prevent an assault or stop a potentially
dangerous situation like an physical attack” said Jeff Ellis, an 8th
degree black belt with more than 43 years of self-defense training experience. “There is hardly a day that goes by
that we don’t see a report on television or hear about an attack or abduction
on the radio."
seconds, somewhere, somehow, a woman is being assaulted. Often the woman is alone, unsure of how
to react, uncertain how to protect herself, unable to stop the attack.
The “Don’t Be a Victim” workshop will focus on providing women valuable information regarding safety awareness, evading assault and self-defense skills. The use of basic hand strikes, blocking actions, simple kicks, and easy ways to escape from grabs or holds will be explored.
The Rotary-sponsored “Don’t Be A Victim” events conducted by Jeff Ellis sell out, and this event is expected to fill up quickly. Register early to reserve your spot.
