UNLEASH YOUR POWER

Reality-Based Self-Defense

Canterbury Community Centre (map)


Sept. 21 - Nov. 23, 2016

Jan. 17 - March 22, 2017

Wednesday: 7:15 pm - 9 pm

Unleash the fighting spirit inside you.  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 20 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:
