Women’s Self-Defense Seminar

Surviving an attack is more than training your body — it includes training your mind and spirit to be resilient. Krav Maga can help you find the potential for strength that you already have and push you to develop it. This women’s self-defense class incorporates training methods to build a fighting spirit and to train women how to respond both mentally and physically in a time of need. Join a community of women who leave classes feeling safe, strong, empowered, and firm in the knowledge that they are not a victim. Friday, April 22, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. | American Drengr Krav Maga, 10079 Market Circle, Manassas
