Last weekend I had the pleasure of teaching a Women Empowered self-defense seminar at the annual Cherry Creek Diversity Conference at my old high school! These groups of young women came together from all over the state of Colorado to participate in the conference, and my workshop was one of many that the students could participate in. Unfortunately, statistics suggest that 1 in 4 high school and college age women will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime. My hopes are that each participant of the course left with a few techniques and self-defense principles under her belt that she can apply towards a safe and happy remainder of her high school and college career.
A special thanks to Tony Debelak & crew from Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Aurora for helping instruct the seminar! Here is some more information on their school if you are a Colorado native looking into self-defense jiu-jitsu training! Click Here.
