Self-Defense Workshop for College Students

Event Date: 
August 6, 2017 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm


When you go away to college, you face many new challenges - including new dangers. Every year on US campuses, there are assaults, sex offences, burglaries, and murders. Fortunately, there are simple steps you can take to reduce the risks you face. Learn how to avoid trouble - avoidance is the ultimate form of personal protection. When trouble catches up with you despite your best efforts, you’ll want to know how to minimize your risk and escape quickly. If all else fails, you may be forced to fight back and you’ll want to know how best to handle a larger and stronger attacker.

Billy and Nancy Greer, owners of the Jing Ying Institute of Kung Fu & Tai Chi, will help you develop your personal protection plan by discussing safe practices, by demonstrating and teaching simple but effective techniques for escaping an aggressor, and by showing you how to fight back. The emphasis is on learning simple principles that are easy to remember and apply, rather than focusing on more complex techniques that require lots of practice to master.

While this workshop is geared towards students currently in college or headed to college, it is open to other teens and adults.

Please wear loose comfortable clothing. You will work with partners and may need to remove watches or jewelry on your wrists.

Here's what one mom had to say about our self-defense workshops:

"My teenage daughter attended one of your self-defense workshops, and I believe it helped prevent her abduction. Two men tried to drag her into a truck, and she was able to escape using your techniques."
