I led a free self-defense class in Portsmouth.
An armed and trained society is safe, self-reliant, and free. To further this aim, I teach free self-defense classes to the community to help them to protect themselves and their neighbors from physical harm.
This was the first of such classes I had taught in the area.
Despite minimal marketing consisting mainly of word-of-mouth, the class had a large turnout. Main techniques taught were a defensive posture which was practiced against a flurry of random attacks; elbow and knee strikes from the clinch; and various escapes from wrist holds and chokes. All in all, the class focused on practical self-defense in a chaotic environment to simulate an attack situation.
