October 12th: Bar Fight Defense Seminar
    • Time: 10 AM to 12 PM​​
    • Cost: $45 (includes first drink)
    • Location: Cerberus
                                       702 W Colorado Blvd, Colorado Springs 80905
Description: Just about everyone has experienced a great night out on the town that took a downhill turn. When crowds, noise, and mind-altering substances are involved, a night club or bar can transform into a brawl with little or no warning. Have you ever gotten caught in the middle? Even finding a way out of the line of fire of a drunk person’s blind strikes can be a challenge.​
This seminar will set you up to defend yourself and stay safe in these situations! Low visibility, a lack of ability to communicate normally, and high stress are all factors in the nightclub scene. Learn to keep your bearings, spot the exits, and move away from danger as quickly as possible while defending yourself against physical attacks.
Space is limited, so make sure to give yourself time to get a spot before registration is closed!

National Domestic Violence Awareness Month is an annual designation observed in October. For many, home is a place of love, warmth, and comfort. It’s somewhere that you know you will be surrounded by care and support, and a nice little break from the busyness of the real world. But for millions of others, home is anything but a sanctuary. The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are victims of physical violence by a partner every year.

The seminar will cover basic self-defense to stop an assault. We will go over releases form grabs and chokes, takedown prevention, basic counters and hair pull defense.  100% of ll proceeds will go to TESSA
