to view all of our current programs.
Self-defense is a real and necessary skill.
Learn simple strategies to minimize risk and easy-to-learn tactics that will get you to safety quickly. You will understand the psychology behind most violence and how to avert it.
The class will also teach the fundamentals of striking and escaping. People who are confident in crisis seldom need to defend themselves. Their belief in themselves turns predators away. But this belief has to be strong, even under pressure, under threat.
This class is for ages 14 & up.
Parental consent is required for minors due to mature topics being covered.
This program is FREE but class space is limited and all participants must pre-register at suffieldrec.com. In addition, visit
