This FREE class will give you the skills that may save your life someday. Based upon PPCT's (pressure points & controlled tactics) SHARP program and the Mary Conroy method of self defense. The first two thirds of the class, preparation and awareness, will be taught in various areas/situations ranging from safety in the home to being safe when "out on the town." The training will include carjacking, safety in the workplace, safety while traveling and other self-defense strategies which apply to everyday activities. The physical skills in this course will be limited to less than 10 actual techniques. They will be based upon gross motor skills such as release from wrist grabs, front kicks, knee and hand strikes, eye gouges, etc. Your instructor, Jack Leonard, is a retired State Police Parole Agent with over 20 years of law enforcement experience. He is a Staff Instructor Emeritus with PPCT, the largest subject control agency in the world. PPCT currently provides training for the Federal Air Marshalls. Jack has been teaching self defense classes for women since 1983.
