Self-Defense Workshop at H2L Studio
Join Fran & Franca of F2 Women's Self-Defense for a Self-Defense Workshop at H2L Studio.
F2 Women's Self Defense was founded by Fran Regan and Franca D'Agostino in September 2015. The almost-daily news stories about women being victimized and the dismal statistics (1 out of 4 women will be attacked in their lifetime!) made us think about the important women in our lives - our daughters, our mothers, our teachers, our neighbors, our friends - and how we might be able to help them avoid becoming one of those statistics. Our passion for empowering women grew, and we decided to find a way to use our personal skills and love of fitness to develop and implement a self-defense program to teach all women to better protect themselves.
The class format may vary depending upon the participants, however, our basic four-hour class consists of approximately 1.5 - 2 hours of lecture and 2 - 2.5 hours of contact drills. First and foremost, because 90% of self-defense is becoming aware of risks to your personal safety and learning how to better avoid those risks, our emphasis is not on physical fighting. Rather, we emphasize improving situational awareness and conveying strength and confidence through body language and the use of voice. Along with risk reduction strategies, we teach simple-yet-effective strikes for the worst-case scenario, when avoiding an attack becomes impossible. The strikes taught are simple self-defense moves EVERY woman can perform - fist strikes, elbow strikes, knee strikes, kicks - which are meant to be delivered at 100% intensity, with the goal being not to engage in hand-to-hand combat, but simply to allow for escape!
Please dress comfortably, wear sneakers, and remove all jewelry (with the exception of stud earrings and wedding bands) for class.
The price of the workshop is $45. You must reserve a spot online.
