WOMEN’S SELF-DEFENSE |  VIOLENCE PREVENTION WORKSHOP

WE DIDN’T HAVE TO LOOK HARD TO FIND THESE HEADLINES


The headlines above were taken from internet articles and local newspapers throughout our communities within just the past few days. 

If there’s one course at Bear Arms we would encourage all women to take, it would be this one; Women’s Self-Defense – Violence Prevention. It’s that important. Whether you’re 16 years of age or 86, this class will teach you a wide array of self-defense techniques and strategies to help protect you from assault, car jackings, robbery, home invasions and other serious crimes. No matter what your occupation — a lawyer, doctor, bartender, college student, realtor, photographer, a sales clerk, judge, waitress, teacher, an artist — or a full-time mom, this is a MUST TAKE course where women can benefit greatly. Crime doesn’t discriminate. Don’t become a victim — and don’t be foolish…WOMEN ARE EASY TARGETS in the eyes of many criminals. But you can gain the upper hand with this comprehensive workshop that will teach you how to protect yourself — and maybe even save your life — or a life of a loved one. It’s that important.
