Reality-Based Self-Defense

Canterbury Community Centre
September 10 – December 10, 2014
Wednesday 7:15 - 9 pm Hall B

Everyone has the right to be safe. Join Sensei Morgan Duchesney of Okuden Karate Jutsu and Ouellette's Karate to learn practical self-defense and strategies for personal security. During 18 years of martial arts teaching and research, Sensei Duchesney has identified the key principles of personal safety.

You will learn: effective defenses against sexual assault, “swarmings”, weapon attacks, confined spaces, and low light situations. The classes are designed especially for those who wish to learn self-defense without the uniforms and customs of traditional martial arts. Open to women and men over 14 years of age.

For information, contact Sensei Duchesney at:
morjd@sympatico.ca
To register in August, 2014, call the Canterbury Community Association: 613-738-8998 or visit their website: www.cca-acc.ca
