Teakwon-Do Center, 29 Alden Street, is hosting a Defense Against Weapons (DAW) workshop for women only. This event will take place this afternoon from 1 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
One of the most common questions women have is, "but what if he's holding a knife against my throat?” You must be prepared to defend against an armed rapist. Knowing that the unarmed defender is at a huge disadvantage against an armed attacker, this all new module is designed to provide responses that allow a woman to neutralize an attack until help can arrive. Techniques include defense against being strangled with a cord, beaten with a club, stabbed with a knife or shot with a handgun. The principal here is "Stop the Killing" long enough so you can save yourself when there is no one else to save you.
