July's schedule for women's FREE self-defense and empowerment classes provided by Paul Montenegro of Montenegro's School of TawKwon Do and AVA Executive Director, Rebecka Swatman are as follows:
July 13, 14, 15, 23, 24, 25, 26. All times are 7:30- 8:30 p.m. Classes are held at the Montenegro School of TaeKwon Do, 5184 1/2 Winnemucca Blvd. (Behind Computer Tamer and next to BLM offices)
Each class involves critical discussions covering the most important awareness principles and safety strategies. Even if you are already well-versed in safety strategies and are well aware of your surroundings, these lessons will reinforce your safety consciousness and heighten your awareness in many settings.
Offered monthly to all women ages 18 and over (if younger, parental permission is required). These courses follow the Women’s Empowerment program as part of the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy.
If anyone is interested in taking a class but is not comfortable with any of the lessons, it’s acceptable to sit out and observe. No one will be asked to participate in anything they are uncomfortable with. If any special accommodations are needed, please contact us and we’ll make arrangements ahead of time.
Patience, timing, and leverage can overcome any of life’s adversities, regardless of their nature. Remember: Anyone can be a victim, regardless of where you live, education, age gender, physical attributes, socioeconomic status, etc. Everyone can learn to protect themselves!
