“The difference between being paranoid and being prepared is the process of being informed.” -John Jenkins
We are sponsoring a Women’s Self Defense class, on June 10th from 9am-12pm. This three hour class, created and taught by John Jenkins, is called SAFE Plan.
The SAFE Plan program is about:
Simplicity: Easy to learn, practice and master.
Avoidance: Learning the skill of risk assessment to help avoid escalating threats.
Focus: Knowing what to look for in finding “a way out” of a threatening situation.
Escaping: Ability to quickly get out of an unsafe situation.
Says John, “Our daughters and all women should be encouraged to explore and reach for their dreams while understanding how to minimize their exposure to risk. SAFE Plan provides simple, safe, and effective methods of preventing, recognizing, de-escalating, and escaping unsafe situations.”
Registrants need only bring writing materials (notebook and pen/pencil), have a willingness to learn, and wear comfortable/loose fitting clothing.
This class is for ages 12 and up, but adolescents should be accompanied by an adult because we will be covering adult topics of assault and domestic violence.
This class is an affordable $25 per person ($20 for adolescents) and tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite, or by contacting Leah Twitchell if you prefer to mail a check, call her cell FMI: 207.939.6210. Because we have limited space in this class, pre-registration is required. Thanks!
