"The family that kicks together, sticks together..."
Ages 3-5. Small children can defend themselves also. In this class emphasis is placed on "stranger danger" and increasing awareness. Students also learn how to use punches, kicks, elbows, knees, and their voice (the most important defense for small children) to defend themselves and alert others.
This class teaches women and teen-aged girls how to RECOGNIZE & DEFEND against an attacker. The class will strengthen your mind, body, and spirit so you may never have to be a victim. Emphasis is placed on prevention of attacks, but also easy and effective self-defense techniques. The class is taught by Master Carol Henry and a female black belt assistant. Master Henry has many years of experience teaching women's self-defense and working with women who have been in abusive situations. Classes are scheduled at Cliff Nelson Recreation Center BUT, we can bring the class to you...
Students who reach the rank of orange belt are able to begin sparring. LSIT students and instructors apply techniques learned during class in a controlled and structured sparring class.
